The match

When Premier League action returns after the international break one of the intriguing matches will be played at Newcastle upon Tyne. Fifth placed Newcastle United host Manchester United who are third in a repeat of the recent EFL Cup final won by the visitors. As Newcastle boast a better goal difference compared to their hosts, a win will see them leapfrog United and get into the top-four places. After a period of five matches where they drew three and lost two, the Magpies won back-to-back matches in the league before the international break. The defensive record of Newcastle is still the best and their record of 19 goals conceded should give them confidence of keeping their visitors at bay. The morale will be further boosted by the venue, as Newcastle have enjoyed playing here this season, losing just once in 13 Premier League home matches.

The hardships of maintaining their presence on three fronts was showing as United saw injuries hamper their consistency. They went into the international break with just one point from their last two league matches – a 7-0 drubbing at Liverpool followed by a goalless draw at home against Southampton. That draw was achieved with just ten men as Casemiro collected a red card which rules him out of this match. Their record against Newcastle should give them a bit of confidence as United are unbeaten in seven H2Hs in all competitions. While that is something to be happy about, the Red Devils must be concerned about their away form as their only away win against a top-ten team away from home came against Fulham.

Key Statistics

  • Newcastle have lost only one of their last 13 Premier League home matches, winning seven and drawing five

  • The last two Premier League matches between these sides have ended in draws
  • Five of Newcastle’s last ten Premier League matches have ended as draws

  • Manchester United have won only one of their last four away Premier League matches, drawing one and losing two

The bet of our experts

The international break came at the right time for Manchester United who were looking jaded in the league. They still have a number of injury concerns to go with Casemiro's red-card suspension for this trip. Newcastle were struggling to close out matches as well, but are in better space now and should fancy their chances. The odds on a draw are suddenly looking very favorable with both teams likely to treat this as a 'don't lose' match. Our prediction for Newcastle vs Manchester United is double chance on Newcastle to win or draw.
