Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has made three changes to his side to face Newcastle United this evening, with Ashley Young, Morgan Schneiderlin and Jesse Lingard coming in for Cameron Borthwick-Jackson, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Juan Mata.

Schweinsteiger is sidelined having picking up an injury against Sheffield United last time out, meaning Marouane Fellaini lines up in the middle of the park alongside Morgan Schneiderlin.

Lingard, Ander Herrera and Anthony Martial occupy the attacking positions behind Wayne Rooney. David de Gea, meanwhile, makes his 200th appearance for United.

Both teams are in poor form heading into the clash but van Gaal needs a positive performance if he is to relieve some of the pressure on him.

United were not good enough in the 1-0 win against Sheffield United last week and they scraped past the tie through the skin of their teeth. A repeat performance would not go down well among fans.
