Here is the latest Manchester United team news ahead of tonight’s trip away to Newcastle.
The only confirmed injury is Robin van Persie who will not travel with the squad and at this stage there is no return date for the Dutch striker.
Michael Carrick is available but van Gaal said the 33-year-old wouldn’t start because it is too soon for him.
Elsewhere, there has been no news of any last minute injuries but one can always happen right up until warming up before the match.
With only one injury, United’s squad is in a healthy condition ahead of what is a tough run of games which sees van Gaal’s side face Newcastle, Tottenham, Arsenal and Liverpool within the space of 18 days.
Tonight’s game against Newcastle is no pushover but with a near fully fit squad, United are in a strong position to come away from St James’ Park with three points.
