Manchester United have a very strong squad with quality players, according to the 25-year-old, but Joelinton is clear Newcastle only have to think about themselves and can’t consider how not playing since the 11th. December affected visitors.
“I think they have quality, a very strong and experienced team”, Joelinton says NUTV.
âI don’t know how their training went – we have to think about ourselves.
âWe are playing an important game at home and we have to come into the game with everything and play our part.
âI don’t know if they will come in stronger or weaker because of the break.
“We have to prepare, focus, be fully focused and do our best the whole game and win.”
Newcastle have lost their last four meetings with Manchester United, conceding four goals on three occasions and three goals on the other.
