In the upcoming fourth-round clash of the FA Cup, Manchester United will be looking to steer clear of an upset as they face off against League Two’s Newport County this Sunday.

Under Erik ten Hag’s leadership, the team has enjoyed a two-week hiatus since their last game. In contrast, Newport County has been more active, having played two matches during the same timeframe.

The Red Devils are planning to field a formidable lineup for this encounter. Notably, there will be a fresh face between the posts: Altay Bayindir is expected to step in for Andre Onana, who is currently engaged in the Africa Cup of Nations with Cameroon.

In other team news, Harry Maguire and Casemiro have both made the trip to South Wales, signaling their return to the squad. However, there are uncertainties surrounding Marcus Rashford and Jonny Evans, both of whom are questionable for the game.

This match promises to be a significant occasion, marking not only Bayindir’s debut for United but also potentially seeing another young player making their first appearance in a senior squad.

Early Team News:

– Altay Bayindir is poised for his debut, filling in for Andre Onana.

– Harry Maguire and Casemiro return to the team following their injuries.

– Lisandro Martinez might start, following his return against Tottenham.
