Match: Manchester United vs Newcastle United, EPL 2008-2009

Date: 17 August 2008

Venue: Old Trafford

Kick off: 16:00 BST

Newcastle United suffered a 0-6 victory to Manchester United last season with all the goals coming in second half of the match. That was a nightmarish experience for Kevin Keegan who was on his very first match following his come-back to the hot seat of Newcastle United. Newcastle goalkeeper Shay Given was the most shattered person that night as he closely experienced each and every Manchester United goal. Given, though hopeful for a different experience this time around, thinks they are short of few more players to strengthen the squad.

Telegraph reported:

"We hope things are going to be better this time, but I can't sit here and say they definitely will be," he added. "I do feel that we need to strengthen the squad a bit.

"Injuries and suspensions could hit us a lot harder than Manchester United, who can put out two full international teams. We don't have enough quality in depth.''

No doubt, Manchester United has a big squad and there is enough depth as well. For example, Manchester United will miss their Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo in the match due to his ankle injury, but they have quality options like Wayne Rooney, Carlos Tevez to lead their attacking line up. Louis Saha. Owen Hargreaves, Park Ji-Sung all are suffering from knee injury and will sit out for the Newcastle match. Moreover, Nani has been ruled out of the match due to suspension and Anderson is away with Olympic duty.

The good news for Manchester United that Rooney has got over the virus in time and is ready to face Newcastle tomorrow. Midfielder Michael Carrick has also recovered from virus and is in contention for the opening match. Despite missing these key players, Manchester United still have players like Scholes, Giggs, Fletcher, O'Shea to lead the team.

Newcastle is also facing some injury problems. In fact, they will miss two of their key players from attacking line up: Captain Michael Owen and Australian star Mark Viduka. Forward Shola Ameobi is also out of Newcastle’s tomorrow’s fixture at Old Trafford. So, there is enough possibility that manager Kevin Kegan might hand new signings Jonas GutiĆ©rrez and Fabricio Coloccini their debut match against Manchester United.
