The Bulgarian has unsurprisingly plumped for his old side, but he did concede that the Magpies will view this game as the ideal opportunity to face Jose Mourinho's team. The results they had against the top teams didn't get them points yet this season, but gave them very, very close results and very hard matches for the opposition.
Former Old Trafford favourite Paul Scholes declared the Portuguese to be "embarrassing" the club and expressed surprise he remained in the post after Saturday's 3-1 loss at West Ham.

Mr Raab replied saying he didn't accept such statement and was "mindful" of the concerns of the communities of Northern Ireland. Mrs May acknowledged, however, that a no-deal Brexit would be a "bad outcome for the United Kingdom and the EU".
Sanchez's plight has not been helped by United's poor start to the season, with the Red Devils in the midst of their worst start to a league season in 29 years.
"Prediction is Manchester United 2 Newcastle United 0".
