The Manchester United vs Newcastle United live stream is arguably the biggest game of the EPL season so far — and it's all because of one man. Yes, superstar player Cristiano Ronaldo is back at Manchester United and the big news is that he'll definitely make his second debut for the club he left in 2009. The eyes of the footballing world will be on this one.

After 12 years away from the club, Cristiano Ronaldo has returned to Old Trafford. The Portuguese attacker previously played for the Red Devils between 2003 and 2009 and won three league titles, a Champions League trophy, two League Cups, and a Ballon d'Or during his first stint at the club. 

Since then he's gone on to cement himself in football folklore as one of the greatest players ever. He's won almost everything there is to win and has broken countless records at both club and international level.  

But Ronaldo is far from the only exciting new signing to be playing for the Red Devils today, with Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane also in the starting line-up. Ronaldo is expected to start up front with Mason Greenwood, with Sancho and Bruno Fernandes behind.  

Newcastle United are the perfect opposition for Ronaldo's return to the Theatre of Dreams. The Magpies have started the season in poor form with two limp defeats and a very fortunate draw. Newcastle have also conceded 8 goals in just three league matches. Expect Ronaldo to have a field day against such a porous backline.  

Rather ominously for Newcastle, Ronaldo has an extremely strong record against the club. During his first EPL spell, he recorded six goals and five assists in 11 matches against Newcastle. This included a hat-trick during a 6-0 rout in December 2008.

Here's how the sides line up:

Manchester United: de Gea; Wan-Bissaka; Varane; Maguire; Shaw; Pogba; Matic; Greenwood; Bruno Fernandes; Sancho; Cristiano Ronaldo

Newcastle United: Woodman; Manquillo; Hayden; Lascelles; Clark; Ritchie; Willock; S Longstaff; Almirón; Joelinton; Saint-Maximin
