The Japanese midfielder has a bug and may miss the home clash with the Magpies, along with suspended Wayne Rooney and injured Robin van Persie.

Kagawa was substituted during the second half of United's 1-0 home defeat by Everton on Wednesday, which saw the reigning Premier League champions slip to ninth in the table.

The United boss said: "Shinji has a sickness bug and has been unwell.

"We need to see how he is on Saturday but he wasn't too good after the Everton game."

Regarding United's mid-table position following the defeat by Everton in midweek, Moyes added: "It was our first defeat in 13 games and we hope we can do something similar in the coming games.

"If the fans watched the game on Wednesday they'd still have belief.

"It can happen at any club and it has happened here. I hoped it wouldn't but it has.

"We had chances which we didn't take and the result could have easily been very different.

"So unless you're someone who doesn't understand the game much then you would have seen that."

And, looking ahead to the visit of the Magpies, he went on: "They (Newcastle) also had a defeat against Swansea but they have had four straight wins which is a great record to get.

"I know what it's like to try and win three or four games in a row, it's a hard thing to do in the Premier League, so congratulations to them.

"They come to Old Trafford and we're going to make it as hard and difficult for them as we possibly can."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
