Wayne Rooney Set To Return
The Manchester United players pack their bags and travel to Tyneside to take on Alan Pardew´s Newcastle United at St James Park on Tuesday evening looking for three more points. England international Wayne Rooney will return from suspension but Manchester United will miss evergreen midfield playmaker Paul Scholes following his red card in the 1–0 defeat against bitter crosstown rivals Manchester City at Wembley last Saturday.
Sir Alex Ferguson: “With Paul Scholes we have seen it over his playing career. Scholes has had unbelievable moments and is a great player, one of the greatest ever at Manchester United. But he has these red mist moments and this was another one. He was unfortunate as he went for the ball and it bounced up and he has gone through and caught the boy on the thigh. We are getting recovered to get ready for the next match. You have got to recover and get on a winning streak again and it is a major game up at Newcastle.”
