Manchester United and Newcastle return to Premier League action this weekend with an eye-catching clash at St. James’ Park on December 2.
Both sides endured Champions League frustration in midweek, with the Magpies held to a controversial late 1-1 draw away at Paris Saint-Germain, while United threw away a two-goal lead to draw 3-3 at Galatasaray.
Those results mean qualification for the knockout stages is now in the balance for both Eddie Howe and Erik ten Hag’s sides ahead of this domestic meeting on Tyneside.
United take on Bayern Munich in their final group game — and the Red Devils need to win and hope FC Copenhagen draw at home to Galatasaray — with Newcastle needing to win at home to AC Milan, and PSG to draw or lose at Borussia Dortmund, to stand a chance of reaching the Round of 16.
The Sporting News looks at the key details ahead of this game, including how to watch it across the world, kickoff times and the latest lineup news.

Newcastle’s injury list looks set to remain in double figures, with Howe hoping that his team can recover in time after their trip to Paris. Sean Longstaff could be fit enough for a place on the bench, but the hosts are likely to be unchanged.
Newcastle projected lineup (4-3-3, right to left): Pope (GK) — Trippier, Lascelles, Schar, Livramento — Joelinton, Guimaraes, Miley — Almiron, Isak, Gordon.
Ten Hag has no further injury worries after his side’s trip to Turkiye, but United are still without eight first team players for this one, including Casemiro, Christian Eriksen and Mason Mount.
Marcus Rashford is also in line to return after being suspended for the Galatasaray draw, while youngster Kobbie Mainoo could come back in from the start after starring against Everton last week.
Man United projected lineup (4-2-3-1, right to left): Onana (GK) — Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw — McTominay, Mainoo — Rashford, Fernandes, Garnacho — Højlund.
Ten Hag heads to Tyneside on the back of winning three successive Premier League games after the 3-0 loss at home to Newcastle in the Carabao Cup. However, the Magpies have won five on the bounce at home in the league action.
With injuries impacting both squads, they could cancel each other out and a draw seems the most likely result.
Prediction: Newcastle 2-2 Man United
