But Cristiano Ronaldo is Cristiano Ronaldo, so he is going to play a lot of games this season. The excitement is palpable throughout the Manchester United fanbase to see Ronaldo back in the famous No. 7 shirt.

This is the last thing Newcastle and their beleaguered boss Steve Bruce would have wanted, as they are without a win so far this season and the Magpies are heavy underdogs for this trip to United. They will sit back, frustrate and try to hit Manchester United on the counter, but their main focus will be on keeping Ronaldo quiet.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Manchester United vs Newcastle United.
