United look to improve their scoring woes Tuesday, when they take on Newcastle at St. James Park. The pressure hasn’t eased off of United, who only barely advanced in FA Cup play with a late-penalty winner over Sheffield United.
Van Gaal hopes his side can perform better against the Magpies, where United have historically had success. United have lost just one of their last 12 Premier League games at St. James Park, winning nine over that span. They’ll play today without Bastian Schweinsteiger, who suffered a knee injury in Saturday’s FA Cup win.
It’s the latest injury to a side that can’t afford to miss any more impact players. Antonio Valencia and Marcus Rojo are just two United starters to already be sidelined. Newcastle is expected to see the return of midfielder Jack Colback, but Fabricio Coloccini’s status is in doubt for the lineup.
