Sergio Romero is expected to protect once again the Red Devils target , as David de Gea is still linked with a move to Real Madrid and probably will be watching once again the game from the stands.

Newcastle have been boosted up with another signing this summer , as the winger Florian Thauvin arrived from Marseille on a deal that will send Remy Cabella to the French side on a 1 year loan deal.Paul Simpson admits that Newcastle fans will probably see Thauvin in action this week-end against Manchester United.
