Manchester United v Newcastle United live stream, Saturday 11 September, 3pm BST
The big news of the Premier League this weekend is the return of Manchester United legend Cristiano Ronaldo, who's set for his second debut in front of a sellout crowd against Newcastle United.
The returning no.7 is set to play at least some part of the match - according to manager and former teammate, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer. The Portuguese star started training with his new teammates this week after leaving his national team camp.
Ronaldo may be straight into the starting line-up but will have to contend with a red-hot Mason Greenwood for a starting berth, as well as fellow new buy Jadon Sancho. Greenwood has scored in each match so far for the Red Devils, while fellow England youngster Sancho is a £80m star who wanted the no.7 shirt himself - and will want to take on Ronaldo for a place on the left-wing.
Scott McTominay may return to the United side, while Solskjaer says he is not sure if Brazilian Fred, who had to miss his country's World Cup qualifiers, will be cleared to play.
This is a special match for Newcastle themselves, as it's their 1,000th in the Premier League. The Magpies are the eighth team to have reached the milestone.
They will be without former Bournemouth pair Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson for this one, while Karl Darlow will be assessed, after recovering from COVID-19. Manager Steve Bruce says Miguel Almiron is available - despite the threat of a five-day ban from FIFA, following Newcastle's refusal to release the midfielder for international duty with Paraguay.
Bruce has lost 11 of the 12 away fixtures that he played against his former club during his managerial career. The one time he avoided defeat was when he was at Sunderland - and saw his team draw 2-2 at Old Trafford in October 2009.

Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch Steve Bruce’s extra-red face without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
