Confirmed starting XI: Manchester United vs Newcastle

Man United starting XI: Romero; Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Shaw; Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger; Mata, Januzaj, Memphis; Rooney.

Subs: Johnstone, Valencia, McNair, Carrick, Herrera, Young, Chicharito

Bastian Schweinsteiger makes his first start for Manchester United today.

The German midfielder replaces Michael Carrick who has been pushed onto the bench by Louis van Gaal after his performance against Club Brugge.

Finally, we’ll all get to see what Schweinsteiger can do when starting a game and if his influence can be anywhere near as impressive as it has been in his cameo performances so far, United will be in control of the game against Newcastle.

Other than that, there are no changes for United and this sort of consistency with the team selection is really going to help United maintain the sort of consistency which they lacked so badly at the start of last year.

Kick-off today is at 12:45pm.
