Manchester United will travel to St. James’ Park on Tuesday evening hoping for a third successive win in all competitions.

The Reds have won on their last three visits to the North East, but will be without Bastian Schweinsteiger when they go in search of a fourth consecutive victory.

Phil Jones is also unlikely to be involved due to an ankle problem, leaving Louis van Gaal with few options for his defensive set up.

With that in mind, who makes our Predicted XI for Tuesday’s match?
