Emad, who is 18, made his debut in the middle of the week European League A win over Real Sociedad in Turin, where the 17-year-old was included in the first-team squad for the first time.
Amad, at £ 37m, did not make his domestic debut, but injuries to Paul Pogba, Donnie Van de Beek and Edinson Cavani could enable Emad to play against Newcastle at Old Trafford.
United He confirmed in a statement that development coaches Nikki Pate and Mark Dempsey will join Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the bunker this evening as some of the first-team coaching staff have to isolate themselves.
He became head of first-team development and Dempsey returned to United when Solskjaer was appointed interim manager but switched to an academic position in December.
The club insists that the United players are not affected and that the coaches will be absent during the match.
Van de Beek and Cavani missed Sociedad’s 4-0 win due to muscle injuries and did not recover in time for a visit to Newcastle. Scott McTominay came out injured in Turin and was not with the team at the Lowry Hotel.
“Paul came out, Phil [Jones] “I don’t know what Scott is, and I don’t know what Edinson and Donnie will be like either. I think they have a chance,” Solskjaer said.
“We just have to give them even pre-training on Saturday, because on Saturday we need to pick a team so we’ll see how they are, and hopefully they are available.”
United scored ten points from their last 21 in the league, and Manchester City’s victory over Everton on Wednesday night extended their lead at the top to 10 points.
Only two teams failed to win the title in the Premier League era after opening a 10-point advantage and United, who are second on goal difference, stumbled during their short spell at the top last month.
Few expected United would be able to take on a credible challenge, and given third place last season, Solskjaer suggested that second place would mark a progressive season.
“We cannot hide the fact that we have abandoned our level a little,” Solskjaer added. “We lost the points against Everton, Sheffield United and West Bromwich Albion, points that we feel we deserve more and we should get more.
“Tonight [against Sociedad] It was all about finding ourselves and getting back the X factor, brightness and focus so Newcastle is going to be a very important game for us for sure.
“I don’t think anyone will say they won’t. We win every game we play, of course we are. But, whatever the other teams do, City and Liverpool, Leicester, Chelsea, Tottenham, whatever, West Brom, we can’t control.” We just have to control ourselves.
“We are in the position that we are, we are in second place, and of course, your ambition after that is to not finish anything less than that. We will have to do well together if we want to put pressure on City and this has to start on Sunday of course.”
United’s full confirmed squad:
David De Gea, Dean Henderson, Lee Grant, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, Axel Tuanzibi, Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailey, Luke Shaw, Alex Tillis, Brandon Williams, Fred, Nemanja Matic, Shula Schuriter, Bruno Fernandez and Juan Mata Imad, Daniel James, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood
