This article will analyze and predict the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Manchester United. It will look at all aspects of both sides’ recent forms, past head to head, team news, and odds.
Although Newcastle is officially the richest Premier League club, they still have much work to do before they can be considered the richest team at the start of next season.
The Magpies are tied on 10 points with Norwich bottom-placed. Things started to improve after Eddie Howe’s win over Burnley in December. This was their first win of the season.
Newcastle has lost three consecutive games, conceding 11 goals, and scoring one goal. Even though they were playing against top-five teams last season, their defensive problems are still serious.
The Magpies have conceded more goals this season than anyone else, and Watford has a worse goal differential record than Newcastle. Watford also has the worst missed chances to score goals in the league.
These numbers don’t get any better at home. However, the bright spot for St James’ Park fans is the attacking talent that the club already has.
Newcastle scored 18 goals this season, more than two of the top eight (Tottenham or Wolves).
Manchester United defeated Norwich City 0-1 in their Premier League match.
United was 53% in possession and had 13 shots and five shots on target. Cristiano Ronaldo (75’) was United’s goal scorer. Norwich City scored 11 goals, with five of them on target.
United has scored nine goals in their six previous games. United has scored in all six of their games. They have scored four goals in that span.
The two sides will go head-to-head
We look back at the previous head-to-head matches between them, which date back to February 2019, and we see that Newcastle United won 1, while United won 5, and drew 0.
These games saw a lot of goals, with 22 total goals, which averaged 3.67 goals per match.
News from the team
Eddie Howe will not be able to see Federico Fernandes (thigh issue), Jamal Lewis(hamstring injury), or Paul Dummett (2 calf injuries).
The Magpies could use a 4-4-1-1-1 formation to win this game. They would be accompanied by Martin Dubravka and Javier Manquillo, Fabian Schar, and Jamaal Lascelles.
Ralph Rangnick, Manchester United’s boss, does not have a full team to choose from. Victor Lindelof (heart conditions), Edinson Cavani (10don irritation), Paul Pogba (12 hamstring injuries), Tahith Chong (12 groin surgeries) are some of the people who can’t be considered.
It seems probable that the Red Devils will choose a 4-2-3-1 team, with David de Gea and Diogo Dalot. This would include Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane. Alex Taylor, Scott McTominay and Fred, Jadon Sancho. Bruno Fernandez, Marcus Rashford, and Cristiano Ronaldo.
This match will favor both teams, but betting on a United win is appealing at 2.00.
Rangnick was the Red Devils’ manager and they have won three of their four games while winning four others at a low price (1.45). BTTS returns are still below 1.75 despite their current highest price of 1.52 compared with 1.79.
You can take it one step further and even remove the margin and place bets at true prices on both races (1.527 and 1.529), the return on the second race is still below 1.8.
This means that 2.00 odds of winning are excessive and should not be taken seriously.
