    Ten Hag dismisses criticism with insistence that Man Utd team ‘in development’

    Manchester United travel to Newcastle United this evening as both sides look to put weeknight Champions League woes behind them and consolidate form in the Premier League.

    Newcastle go into the game a point behind Manchester United in the table, although they have lost one fewer game than Erik ten Hag’s men. But at St James’ Park, Newcastle have been a powerhouse this season, winning six of their matches at home, and losing just one, having netted 14 goals in the process.

    Both sides have been dealing with injury concerns this season, although Magpie woes are more acute, they were forced to field teenagers on the bench against Paris Saint Germain in midweek, and were unable to make any tactical substitutions.

    Eddie Howe will be without 11 players for the match, while Ten Hag has been able to welcome back Luke Shaw in recent weeks, but United could be without seven senior members of the squad.

    Newcastle 0-0 Manchester United

    53 mins: Rashford bundles over Livramento near halfway. Not sure how much longer he and Martial will be on the pitch, they’ve offered very little. Hojlund and Antony feel like probable replacements.

    Newcastle 0-0 Manchester United

    52 mins: Ha! Lovely nutmeg by Trippier on Garnacho near the corner flag. Superb stuff. The cross comes to nothing, sadly (or happily from Garnacho’s perspective)

    Newcastle 0-0 Manchester United

    50 mins: This really is feeling like a matter of time until Newcastle score. Another defensive interception by Shaw from Schar’s hard-hit cross.

    Newcastle 0-0 Manchester United

    48 mins: Shaw again defends brilliantly – he and Maguire were superb in the first half. Guimaraes gets beyond Mainoo to the byline and his low cross is going to be turned in by Isak, only for Shaw to slide in front and hook the ball out for a corner.

    First corner defended well enough but a second inswinging corner from the other side gets Onan flapping and punching it away.

    KICK-OFF! Newcastle 0-0 Manchester United

    46 mins: Back underway in the north east. Newcastle utterly dominated that first period – can they convert to three points?

    Also, how long can their threadbare squad keep this tempo up? Not many options on the bench

    Newcastle 0-0 Manchester United

    How long before Man United make changes in this second half? It wasn’t really good enough before the break.

    HALF-TIME! Newcastle 0-0 Manchester United

    And there’s half-time! Newcastle by far the better side and struck the underside of the bar with a Trippier free-kick but it’s still 0-0.

    Newcastle 0-0 Manchester United

    43 mins: Newcastle cramming the six-yard box. 15 of the 22 players on the pitch int he six-yard box from this corner – putting Onana under all sorts of pressure.

    Great block! The ball falls to Schar who strikes it goalwards but Maguire gets his body in the way. Good work by the England centre-back

    Newcastle 0-0 Manchester United

    42 mins: Great interception by Maguire as Gordon put in a low cross. Another corner for the Magpies though.
