Newcastle United vs. Manchester United: Lineups

A visit to Newcastle isn't the happiest thing for any club to countenance these days, but Sir Alex Ferguson is pushing hard for a win. Three recognised strikers (plus whatever you want to call Shinji Kagawa) are starting for the visitors as they look to pick up three points. And why not? With Fabricio Coloccini and Steven Taylor out, this Newcastle defence is there for the taking. The Manchester United midfield, however... I don't like Tom Cleverley and Michael Carrick's chances against Newcastle's pairing of Cheik Tiote and Yohan Cabaye.

One further note: Both teams are 'United' here. Referring to Manchester United as 'United' would be silly.

Newcastle United starting lineup (4-4-2): Steve Harper; Shane Ferguson, James Perch, Mike Williamson, Davide Santon; Jonas Gutierrez, Cheik Tiote, Yohan Cabaye, Hatem Ben Arfa; Demba Ba, Papiss Cisse.

Manchester United starting lineup (4-2-3-1): David de Gea; Patrice Evra, Johnny Evans, Rio Ferdinand, Rafael; Tom Cleverley, Michael Carrick; Shinji Kagawa, Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck; Robin van Persie

Chelsea vs. Norwich City: Lineups

Chelsea sit three points clear over Everton at the top of the EPL table and they'll look to keep it that way as they host a struggling 18th place Norwich City side.

The Canaries have yet to win a league match this season, getting their only points from a handful of draws. Chris Hughton has made several changes from his lineup last weekend. In defense, Michael Turner has been replaced by Sébastien Bassong while in the midfield Robert Snodgrass and Andrew Surman were dropped in favor or Wes Hoolahan and Elliott Bennett. Alexander Tettey gets a start as well, while Grant Holt returns to the lineup.

Chelsea have put out a full strength squad today with Fernando Torres once again leading Di Matteo's 4-2-3-1 formation. The only change from last week's victory over Arsenal is the return to Frank Lampard to the starting eleven in place of Ramires.

Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Petr Čech; Branislav Ivanović, David Luiz, John Terry, Ashley Cole; Mikel, Frank Lampard; Juan Mata, Oscar, Eden Hazard; Fernando Torres.

Norwich City (4-4-1-1): John Ruddy; Russell Martin, Leon Barnett, Sébastien Bassong, Javier Garrido; Bradley Johnson, Jonny Howson, Wes Hoolahan, Alexander Tettey; Elliott Bennett; Grant Holt.
