Newcastle v Manchester United Premier League Preview, 11th February 2.15pm
The positives for Newcastle is that they aren’t losing as much lately, however, they can’t find a winning touch to ease their relegation pressures and there is a tough game ahead of them on the weekend as they welcome Manchester United to St James’ Park. The Red Devils snapped back from their loss against Spurs with a comfortable win over Huddersfield on the weekend to strengthen their chance of a second place finish.
Newcastle v Manchester United Betting Odds*
Manchester United 11/20, Draw 3/1, Newcastle 5/1* (Betting Odds taken on February 6th, 2018 at 7:45 p.m.)
Newcastle News and Form
Newcastle have only suffered the one defeat in their last six league matches now and that lone defeat happened away at Man City. So from that perspective it’s not been bad but they haven’t done enough winning to ease relegation concerns at all. They have picked up just the one victory in their last seven league matches now in the Premier League. Their home record has only seen them win three times too with a W3 D4 L6 return which isn’t much to get excited about but they are on a three-match sequence of drawn matches there at the moment. Newcastle have drawn three of their last four league games by a 1-1 scoreline and that is going to carry big odds of 7/1 at William Hill and the shortest priced option in the market is at 11/2* (Betting Odds taken on February 6th, 2018 at 7:45 p.m.). Newcastle have failed to win any of their last eight league home games and all season at St James’ Park have managed only eleven goals. Defensively they haven’t been too bad really with only the 15 conceded in 13. They are going to be somewhat vulnerable at the back of course and haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last four league outings and they have shipped in 77% of their home games. Four of their six home defeats this season have been by a one-goal margin only. No-one has picked up fewer home points than they have done this season in the Premier League.
Manchester United News and Form
Manchester United snapped back from their big disappointment against Spurs at Wembley as they rolled out a home win over Huddersfield last weekend. Out on the road, the Red Devils are W7 D3 L3 on their travels this season and the loss at Spurs snapped a very good six-match unbeaten streak of form that they were on away from Old Trafford (W5 D1). In total Manchester, United have returned 22 goals away from home this season in the top flight at a great average of 1.7 per game and that is something that should have Newcastle under pressure. Each of United’s last three away games have seen less than three goals and under 2.5 goals at William Hill is up at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 6th, 2018 at 7:45 p.m.). Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez (who got his first goal for his new club last weekend) are the joint-shortest priced options to consider in the first goalscorer market. Manchester United have picked up a clean sheet in their last two away victories and Manchester United to win to nil looks a pretty good option to roll with as they boast the best defence in the top flight heading into the weekend.
Newcastle v Manchester United Head to Head
Newcastle were on the wrong end of a 4-1 scoreline at Old Trafford back in November and they are winless in their last six games against the Red Devils in the Premier League now (D1 L5). So the head to head form isn’t there but he did hold out for a thrilling 3-3 draw in this corresponding fixture from the 2015/16 season. However, they are just W1 L3 in their last four Premier League home games against the Red Devils. Manchester United have scored at least three goals in four of their last six games against the Magpies.
Who will win – Newcastle v Manchester United Predictions
Newcastle just don’t have the quality at the moment in them to land a victory in this one and they don’t look likely to collect a point out of the fixture. So settle for a Manchester United to win to nil wager, they are strong enough and professional enough to do the job.
