And that's it! Manchester United add another three points to their tally, which guarantees a seven-point lead in the Premier League going into 2013, with Manchester City having gone down 1-0 to Sunderland. It's a bitter pill for Newacastle to swallow though as they remain too close to the relegation zone for Alan Pardew's liking, although there were plenty of positives to take out of this one.
That will be Javier Hernandez's last contribution for today as he's brought off for Darren Fletcher. Meanwhile, we're already three minutes into an added four, and as it stands Manchester United on heading towards three precious points.
GOAL! MAnchester United 4-3 Newcastle! Javier Hernandez!
Dare to try predict the outcome of this one? Well, Sky Bet have Manchester United at 5/4 for the win, while Newcastle remain at 10/1 for the three points. A draw, meanwhile, is at 4/5, so good luck to you.
A change up front for Newcastle now as Shola Ameobi, match winner for the Magpies at the weekend, comes on for Demba Ba.
GOAL! Manchester United 3-3 Newcastle! Robin van Persie!
GOAL! Manchester United 2-3 Newcastle! Papiss Cisse!
First change of the afternoon now, with Newcastle manager Alan Pardew introducing former Manchester United midfielder Gabriel Obertan for the impressive Gael Bigirimana.
Danny Simpson is the latest player to be booked as he goes in very late on Jonny Evans, who flies into the advertising boards and remains down clutching his back. He's back on his feet now, but that's the sixth booking of the afternoon and both sides are in danger of going down to 10 men.
GOAL! Manchester United 2-2 Newcastle! Patrice Evra!
Jack from Cambridge emails in: Fergie should be sent to the touchline for that sort of outburst. How disgraceful. Even if you dont agree with the decision, you dont do that, not setting an example to youngsters out there!
Appeals for a penalty from the home side now as Javier Hernandez goes down inside the area following a collision with Fabricio Coloccini, but the referee is probably correct to wave away the calls for a spot-kick as they Red Devils striker went down far too easily. No booking for simulation though.
Antonio Valencia is the latest to be show a yellow card as he goes right through Danny Simpson in what was a very late challenge.
Chris Walters has been none-too-impressed with Manchester United today, writing in: My strict rule is that, from the moment Paul Scholes comes on I turn off a match. Invariably, these days, his presence heralds a game in which United will struggle, make stupid errors, and be absolutely painful to watch. Even if he's not directly involved in the errors, Scholes being there signals that United will play badly. As I check the ticker every few minutes I see that my rule is a good one, and I'm much better off watching Dr. Who reruns.
The referee's whistle brings the first 45 minutes to a halt, with Newcastle heading down the tunnel with a 2-1 lead. History in the making for the Magpies, while Manchester United will need to tighten up in all areas of the field if they are to rescue the game this afternoon. Join me after the break to find out how this one finishes.
Can Manchester United battle back again? They're now odds-against to win at 5/4 with Newcastle 2/1 to hold on for victory.
Yellow cards coming thick and fast now as Mike Williamson is the latest to be booked for bringing down Ryan Giggs right on the edge of the area.
Javier Hernandez goes into the referee's book now as he clips the heels of Cisse who was breaking clean through on goal. They almost make the most of the set-piece, but Sylvain Marveaux's sees his curling effort crash off the woodwork with De Gea well beaten.
Jonny Evans now also becomes the first player to be booked for a sloppy four close the area. The resulting free-kick is not a very good one though and the defence easily heads clear.
GOAL! Manchester United 1-2 Newcastle! Jonny Evans own-goal!
GOAL! Mancehster United 1-1 Newcastle! Jonny Evans!
Will it be yet another comeback win for Manchester United? They're still favourites to pick up the points at 4/6 with Newcastle 7/2, having started the match as 10/1 outsiders.
Chris Walters adds: I was excited for this match until I saw Carrick, Scholes, AND Giggs starting. I won't be watching now. It will be painful as Giggs tries to play like he's still the fastest player on the pitch, and has the ball taken away, Carrick gets anxious at the men on either side of him, and Scholes gets angrier until he violates someone's human rights. This may be the day Newcastle finally win at Old Trafford.
Amanda Cunningham says: Cant believe Utd let in another early goal! Come on Fergie, sort it out! Still think MANU will win when they get going. Michael Carrick, my Man Utd hero, will score a goal to win it for us. Come on you devils!
GOAL! Manchester United 0-1 Newcastle! James Perch!
James Wallbridge writes in: Glad to see pardew dropping gutierrez. rooney and young will be big misses for man united. But i still don't think we should take any chances by flooding men forward, because man u are clinical when they counter. Marveaux should bring some pace on the counter, i'd be pleased to see 9 men behind the ball with marveaux ready for US to counter man u. and i'm sure obertan will be ready to show what he can do. I'm going for a 0-0 draw. But i do reckon the toon might be able to pull off an incredible result. COME ON TOON ARMY!!!
We've got our first caller of the day, with Marcus emailing in: After the swansea game we need a win today. A good side united have put out but no rooney is a surprise. However don't think we will win, 2-2 draw.
The team sheets have just come across my desk, but before we get into that why not take the chance to get involved by emailing any and all thoughts or predictions to email@example.com.
Plenty at stake then today, but how about making it a little bit more interesting by popping over to our friends at Sky Bet, who have United at 2/9 for the win, while Newcastle are a bit of a long-shot at 10/1.
