Where to watch live

Kick-off is at 7:45pm GMT. Live coverage of the match is available on BT Sport 1.

Overview

Newcastle are struggling in the Premier League and their poor run extended to the FA Cup. The Tyneside club lost 1-0 to Watford on January 9 as Troy Deeney's goal before the game saw Steve McLaren's side get knocked out of the competition.

The last time the Magpies faced United saw them settle for a goalless draw at Old Trafford. Newcastle, who are without a win in their last five matches, which includes four defeats, will be looking to avoid another loss against the Red Devils.

United come into the fixture after a narrow 1-0 victory over Sheffield United helped them progress further in the FA Cup. Louis van Gaal's side were struggling to create regular chances as a late penalty allowed Wayne Rooney to convert from the spot kick in the stoppage time.

The visitors have two consecutive wins and started 2016 on a brighter note with two wins from two matches. United will be hoping to extend their winning streak when they take on Newcastle on Tuesday evening.
