Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is expecting a Manchester United backlash as the Toon travel to Old Trafford without a win in 39 years at the home of the Red Devils.

United currently their arch-rivals Manchester City in the table and on Tuesday night had a disappointing 2-2 Champions League draw with Benfica.

He said with a smile: "He's clocking up all sorts of milestones. It's about time he walked away and gave someone else a chance. He has been brilliant.

"I know he will be smarting from Wednesday's draw, so unfortunately, we are on the back of a negative from Manchester United's point of view, so it will be a tough game for us.

"When the last game of the season comes around, I expect Manchester United to be playing for the title.

"He wouldn't have it any other way, the manager."
