Newcastle United vs Manchester United Preview

Newcastle United vs Manchester United

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – St James’ Park

Date: 11th February 2018

Kick-off time – 14:15 GMT

Newcastle have shown some signs of improvement ahead of this game despite their lack of transfer activity.

They drew their last game against Crystal Palace, but that result means they have lost only two of their last 8 competitive games.

Palace come into this game 16th in the league table with just one point separating them from the drop zone so they need a win more than their visitors.

Impressively they have netted in their last 5 games even though they played Burnley and Manchester City in that run of games.

Manchester United need to keep results flowing if they want to finish inside the top two as they have already conceded defeat in their bid to snatch the title away from Manchester City.

Their 2-0 win over Huddersfield last weekend means they have won six of their last seven competitive games and a good response from their 2-0 loss to Tottenham in the prior fixture.

United have kept only two clean sheets in their last 9 away games which makes it a possibility for both teams to score in this game.

The Red Devils have won four, drawn two and lost one of their last seven matches with the Magpies.
