Former Manchester United manager David Moyes is keen on a stunning return to the Premier League with Newcastle United, with the Scottish manager interested in replacing beleaguered boss Alan Pardew, as reported by the Daily Star.
Moyes was sacked by Man Utd towards the end of last season, when it was clear that the club would not somehow manage to earn a place in the Champions League for this season.
He did, however, have a long successful spell in charge of Everton, and many would consider him to be an ideal appointment if Pardew was done away with by owner Mike Ashley.
There is also interest elsewhere in Steve Bruce, who travels to St. James’ Park with Hull City next weekend in what could be Pardew’s last match in charge.
Pardew is under incredible pressure after a 4-0 loss against Southampton yesterday, with the style of the performance suggesting a very deep malaise running through the squad.
Manchester United have confirmed their starting line up for their game against Queens Park Rangers at Old Trafford, with the game being broadcast live on Sky Sports at 4pm today.
The Old Trafford club are looking for their first win of the new season, having failed to turn early optimism into results under Louis van Gaal.
Opening day saw them fall to a 2-1 loss against Swansea City, who were undefeated in the league until they faced Chelsea yesterday.
They then faced Sunderland, who they drew with away from home. Their last Premier League match was a goalless draw against Burnley, when record breaking signing Angel Di Maria made his debut for the side after his transfer from Real Madrid.
Man Utd have also faced a significant humbling in the League Cup, when their inexperienced line up lost 4-0 to League Two side MK Dons, with Arsenal loanee Benik Afobe scoring a brace.
Van Gaal’s selection is as follows:
Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen has tweeted that he believes there’s no way Chelsea won’t win the league this season, having seen them storm to a 4-2 win against Swansea City at home.
Diego Costa, who has begun the new season in absolutely sensational form, scored a stunning hat trick to turn a single goal deficit into a comfortable lead. The Spain international has adapted to life exceptionally well in the Premier League.
Owen himself tweeted the following after watching the match.
Chelsea have been installed as comfortable favourites to win the Premier League this season, having had an exceptionally solid transfer window.
Their start to the season has also seen them as the only one of the teams considered to be title contenders to remain undefeated. The likes of Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool have all dropped points, with Manchester United, an outside thought for the title, barely getting going.
