CRISTIANO RONALDO is set to make his Premier League debut as Man Utd take on Newcastle.
The Portugal captain has been able to return early from the international break after picking up a suspension following his last minute winner against Ireland.
Nothing less than a win will be acceptable for Ronaldo and co against Steve Bruce’s visitors, who have picked up a solitary point in the campaign so far.

Cristiano Ronaldo WILL make his second Man Utd debut, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said.
The Red Devils boss commented: “He has had a good week with us here.
“He’ll definitely be on the pitch at some point, that’s for sure.
“Everyone is very happy to have him back, the mood has been very good.
“We are looking forward to Saturday of course.”
Should Ronaldo not be in the starting XI, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood are likely to battle it out for the centre-forward position.
Jadon Sancho is likely to play despite picking up a knock before England’s match against Hungary while Marcus Rashford remains out.
Scott McTominay and Alex Telles have returned to training.
Callum Wilson, Isaac Hayden and Paul Dummett are all doubts for Newcastle while Freddie Woodman is set to continue deputising in goal for the injured Martin Dubravka.
Man Utd 1/6
