Manchester United vs Newcastle United Preview

Manchester United vs Newcastle United

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Old Trafford

Date: 6th October 2018

Kick-off time – 17:30 GMT

There is so much trouble brewing at Old Trafford and every fixture is now potentially Jose Mourinho’s last at the helm including this game against Newcastle, even though the Magpies are winless this season.

Manchester United were held to a goalless draw by Valencia in their last game and that was the 4th consecutive time they have failed to win a game despite playing 3 of those matches at home.

In their last game they were booed off the field and Jose Mourinho seems to be fighting for his job now as he failed to criticize any of his players in his post-match press conference in midweek.

The Red Devils are currently 10th in the league table with 10 points after winning just 3 of their opening 7 Premier League games so far.

Newcastle will be looking to cause an upset, but the visitors are in even worse form.

Rafa Benitez’s side were well beaten at home by Leicester City last weekend (0:2).

That result made it 4 losses from 4 home games for Newcastle.

They have collected just two points all season and those have come on the road, so they would feel they can get something out of this game.

Newcastle are currently 18th in the league table, only ahead of Cardiff City and Huddersfield on goal difference, and it seems like they could be heading back to the Championship before May 2019 unless things start to change.

Despite Manchester United’s troubles, bookmakers make them strong odds-on favourites to get the job done against this struggling Newcastle side.

Goal markets suggest there could be goals and it will be interesting to see how these teams approach this match given their current struggle for form.
