Who will win Newcastle vs Man United?
Newcastle's breakthrough victory a month ago was not the kickstart they expected it to be. They have conceded 11 goals in 3 matches, suffering heavy defeats to Liverpool, Manchester City and Leicester.
Manchester United have now gone 6 matches unbeaten across all competitions since the change of manager last month and they appeared primed to make an assault on the top 4.
Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial are both injured which will limit United's scoring potency. But even factoring that in, it is difficult to see how Newcastle can find a way home at the other end. They were also belted 4–1 by United when these sides met back in September on Cristiano Ronaldo's return to the Red Devils.
We think Manchester United will take a step towards the top 4 by claiming all 3 points on offer here.
