Marcus Rashford has shaken off whatever discomfort he had in the Bournemouth win to lead the attack, with Romelu Lukaku still on the bench.

Alexis Sanchez, who has not featured since November 24, is a substitute today having recovered from a hamstring injury.

For Newcastle United, manager Rafa Benitez has been forced into one change from the side that drew at Watford.

Federico Fernandez has failed to recover from the hip injury which forced him off the pitch at half-time at Watford so Fabian Schar gets the starting place in defence.

Loves to play sports, especially football and basketball. I wanted to be world-class but it never actually happened so I am sticking to something else. I enjoy writing and I hope you'll appreciate what I bring! Brilliant! Isn't it. Be bless.
