Manchester United finally get the Ralf Rangnick era back underway on Monday evening when they travel to a relegation-threatened Newcastle United.

Having not played since beating Norwich City over ten days ago now, United should be reasonably fresh, albeit expecting players to return in fully fit conditions after contracting Covid-19 is perhaps somewhat foolish.

While it would be fair to say the world is truly waiting to see whether Rangnick can implement his notoriously intense methods in such a short period, United are unbeaten under his watch thus far. Surely, then, it is reasonable to expect an improvement soon.

So then, a trip to St James’ Park to face a side they have already resoundingly beaten this season is a favourable return to action. Performances might have improved under Eddie Howe’s watch but this a side to have won only once all season.

Date, kick-off time and venue

The Premier League game is scheduled for an 8pm kick-off on Monday December 27, 2021.

St James’ Park in Newcastle will host.
