Eddie Howe’s side are also looking for revenge after their Carabao Cup final defeat to Man United, which came amid a run of form they’ve since put behind them thanks to back-to-back wins.
As for the visitors, a wave of cup success has been achieved against the backdrop of some tricky performances in the Premier League.
Of Marcus Rashford an injury concern and Casemiro suspended, Erik ten Hag faces arguably one of the toughest away games of the season knowing his team’s top four place is far from certain.

Newcastle vs Manchester United team news
Joelinton is available for the hosts again following his two-match suspension, while both Nick Pope and Sven Botman are likely to be fit following their withdrawal from the international squad at the break, along with Fabian Schar.
However, Anthony Gordon is still a doubt.
Marcus Rashford (too) is ready to be fit after missing England and Anthony Martial should join him in the squad after his own firing.
Marcel Sabitzer (knee) developed a new problem while away from Austria and there are still question marks about Raphael Varane (knock) and Alejandro Garnacho (single). Christian Eriksen (ankle) and Donny van de Beek (knee) miss together with the suspended Casemiro.
Prediction Newcastle vs Manchester United
Two teams with pretty strong defenses and forwards in form, it seems perfectly logical that they would just cancel each other out.
A 1-1 draw.
