Promoted Newcastle dropped to 11th in the league following 1-0 defeats by Burnley and Bournemouth but Shelvey said form counted for little.

Manchester United are also looking to bounce back after losing 1-0 at Chelsea before the break and, even though they have not lost at home for more than a year, Shelvey is hopeful that Rafael Benitez can engineer a surprise.

'Rafa knows this league, he knows how to set teams up and how to get results and I'm sure that we'll go there and give a good account of ourselves, and hopefully come away with something, ' added Shelvey.
"We could go and do something against Man United - that's how weird this league is", he added.
While Newcastle are facing a daunting task, Shelvey is excited by the prospect.
Darlow was linked with Middlesbrough and Reading over the summer, but he told the Evening Chronicle: "I want to play first-team football for this club in the Premier League and it's up to me to convince the manager I should be".
