For Sunday’s match, should Newcastle manager Alan Pardew play both Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse? And should Alex Ferguson give another 90 minutes to Darren Fletcher? And should United play a more attacking line-up like they did midweek in the Champions League, with Javier Hernandez starting up front for a three-prong attack? Or does United need to batten down the hatches in defense?
