Manchester United vs Newcastle United Preview

Manchester United vs Newcastle United

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Old Trafford

Date: 18th November 2017

Kick-off time – 17:30 GMT

Manchester United fell 8 points behind their noisy neighbours when they lost their last game 1-0 at Chelsea which was their second loss of the season.

They are having a good season that has seen them win 4 of their last five games and they have lost just two games all season.

They are almost unbeatable at home as they have won all 8 of their home games in all competitions and have conceded just one goal there, while scoring 15.

Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are expected to be on the bench in this game and they could play pivotal roles.

Newcastle head to Old Trafford desperately short of form and they face a difficult task to turn things around.

The Magpies have won just one of their last six league games and lost 0-1 at home to Bournemouth the last time out.

They are currently 11th in the league table but only six points separates them from the relegation zone and a defeat in this game would send them down the table.

They have just one win from their last five league games, losing three on the road.

Newcastle are a struggling side when it comes to attack and it will be tough for them to breach the best defence in the league this season.
