Newcastle boss Steve McClaren says midfielder Moussa Sissoko has a chance of playing against Manchester United despite suffering a groin injury.

At today’s Newcastle United press conference, McClaren said: “Moussa is not as bad as we first thought. He might have a chance for tomorrow. We will leave it as late as possible.”

The Frenchman suffered a groin strain during Newcastle’s defeat to Swansea and was considered “a real doubt” for the game at Old Trafford.
