We expect Manchester United to win 2-0 at 5.50 with bet365
Manchester United are in need of a morale boosting win after their loss to Chelsea before the international break, and this could be the perfect opportunity.
Now 8 points behind leaders Man City, nothing other than a win will do for the Red Devils. However, at home that’s what they do best. So far in the league they have played 5, won 5, conceded 0.
Another concern they have is the form of Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian has gone 7 games without a goal and has come in for some criticism recently from the United faithful.
Newcastle on the other hand have started the season well under Rafa Benitez, but have lost their last two matches and a third successive defeat would see them start sliding down the table.
The former Liverpool manager would love a win over his old adversaries, but with United’s home form we can’t see past a home win here at 1.27 with Unibet.
Manchester United host Newcastle United at Old Trafford on Saturday evening. The Red Devils are now eight points behind league leaders Manchester City after losing 1-0 to Newcastle before the International break. Newcastle will also be desperate to get a result having lost their last two matches.
United started the season emphatically, but have lost a little steam with recent losses to Huddersfield and Chelsea. At home they are still going strong though, with 5 wins and 5 clean sheets from 5 matches.
Manchester United Form: LWWWLW
The Magpies have lost their last two matches, and have fallen down to 11th in the standings after a good start. They’ve won just once away from home so far this season, but have looked solid under Rafa Benitez.
Newcastle Form: LLWDDL
Newcastle and Manchester United have met 177 times previously, with United having won 76 of their previous meetings including the last one back in April. However, before that Newcastle went 12 unbeaten against United and were also 4-0 winners in this fixture last season.
Phil Jones is a major doubt for United, whereas Paul Pogba, Marcos Rojo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are still out long term. Michael Carrick is also sidelined. Newcastle are likely to be without captain Jamal Lascelles, and influential midfielder Mikel Merino will also miss out.
