Manchester United v Newcastle United: Tino Livramento and Callum Wilson miss out for Eddie Howe’s side at Old Trafford.

Newcastle United have had a fresh injury blow confirmed with Tino Livramento dropping out of the side for the match at Manchester United (8pm kick-off).

Livramento is understood to have suffered a recurrence of his ankle injury following Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Brighton & Hove Albion and is unlikely to feature against Brentford on the final day of the campaign on Sunday (4pm kick-off).

Kieran Trippier has returned to the starting line-up in Livramento’s place while Callum Wilson is still out due to illness. The striker missed Saturday’s draw due to illness and was deemed a doubt for the trip to Old Trafford.

Having missed training in the build-up to the match, Wilson has remained on Tyneside to recover. Unlike Livramento, Wilson is expected to be back in contention for the trip to Brentford as Newcastle look to secure a top six finish.

Newcastle head into the penultimate game of the 2023-24 Premier League season sitting three points above Manchester United in the table with a far superior goal difference. Any result at Old Trafford would effectively secure a top seven finish and a first finish above the Red Devils in the Premier League era.

But a defeat would see Man United draw level on points heading into the final match of the season. The Magpies currently sit sixth in the table which would be enough to secure Europa League qualification should Manchester City beat Manchester United in the FA Cup final.

NUFC XI: Dubravka; Trippier, Krafth, Burn, Hall; Longstaff, Guimaraes, Anderson; Murphy, Gordon, Isak

Subs: Pope, Dummett, Schar, Joelinton, Ritchie, Barnes, Almiron, White, A. Murphy
