Newcastle v Man United Preview
Newcastle have been consistent this season despite the added pressure of Europe, they’re seventh in the league and five points off fourth position. Following their heartbreaking 1-1 draw against PSG midweek after a Mbappé 98th minute penalty, they’re currently third with one game to play in the Champions League Group Stage.
However, in the Premier League last weekend Newcastle came out of the International Break like a greyhound out of the traps with a confidence-boosting 4-1 victory over Chelsea. The goals that day came through Isak, Lascelles, Joelinton and Gordon to give them the victory. This result put them on ten points earned in their last five league games.
The last time these teams faced off, Newcastle had a comfortable 0-3 victory in the EFL Cup and the Teenside faithful will be hoping home comforts bring them a similar result this Saturday night.
Newcastle know that a victory here would have them further climb the league table above Man United into sixth place and potentially above Tottenham into fifth place.

Man United’s Form
Man United are sixth in the Premier League with twelve points from their last five league matches making them statistically the in-form team in the league. However, their Champions League aspirations hang by a thread following their dramatic 3-3 draw against Galatasaray midweek (despite leading 3-1 during the game). They’re now bottom in that group with four points from five games and need a minor miracle to stand any chance of qualifying out of their group.
In the Premier League last weekend Man United continued their ascent up the league with a 0-3 victory over Everton. Although the scoreline doesn’t tell the full story with Everton having twenty-four shots to their nine. A goal of the season contender from Garnacho along with a penalty from Rashford and a late Martial finish gave them another much-needed victory.
A win here for Man United would be huge for their league credentials, putting them four points above Newcastle immediately above them and potentially above Tottenham into fifth place and just one point behind Liverpool in third place.

Key Players To Watch
Kieran Trippier – Newcastle
Arguably the best decision the club has made since its takeover is the acquisition of Trippier (33) despite getting on in years. Since signing in 2022 he has become a crucial component of the Newcastle team at RB
He ranks in the 99th Percentile for Shot-Creating Actions with 4.55 Per 90, 7.17 Progressive Passes (96th Percentile) and also in the 85th Percentile with 1.43 Aerials Won.
Kobee Mainoo – Man United
The newest wonderkid to come out of Carrington? Mainoo (18) was handed his first Premier League start last weekend against Everton and already looks like the midfielder the club has been searching to find for decades now. He looked wise beyond his years assured on the ball making 38/46 passes, having 61 touches, 2 interceptions and 3 recoveries amongst other things in a complete midfield performance.
Man United midweek missed his presence in the middle of the park and he impressed again when coming on in the 58th minute against Galatasaray. Expect him to be handed his second start against Newcastle, already looking like an integral part of the club’s future.
Newcastle v Man United Prediction & Best Bet
Prediction: Newcastle 0-2 Man United
Newcastle will fancy their chances of shocking the Red Devils again following their victory over them earlier in the season in the EFL Cup. Despite being below United on the table their Expected Point total has them 2nd with 25.98 ahead of the Manchester outfit who are down in 11th on 17.41 Points
Man United have a point to prove, following their European collapse again midweek, there seems to be a robustness in the side where they can drag out results in the league in recent weeks. However, a huge performance is needed here in what could finally be the turning point of their season.
Man United need a huge performance here and something tells me they might just do it, but the draw could be a good bet too.
Best Bet: Under 2.5 Goals and Man United Win @ 7/1
