Newcastle United defender Danny Simpson is already eyeing off their home game with Manchester United.

Simpson helped the Magpies to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford last month and is looking forward to the visit of his former club on 4th January - the day of his 25th birthday.

He said: "It should be a great game with all my friends and family coming so that is something to look forward to for me.

"We put in a great performance at Old Trafford. We have not set ourselves any targets this season but after the start we have had, it would be disappointing not to finish in the top 10."
