Match: Manchester United vs Newcastle United
League: English Premier League

Kick-off at 17:30 UK / 18:30 CET
Venue: Old Trafford (Manchester)
Manchester United vs Newcastle: Man United will certainly not imagine the possibility of admitting consecutive losses. With the advantage of the house in the bag and the erratic Newcastle United on the way, the hosts are not likely to be wrong.
Manchester United stumbled for the first time since the beginning of November in its last confrontation in the PL after Watford knocked down the chances of an excellent 2-0 victory. Although they had many more target shots than their enemies in this fight, the hosts were unable to do things and eventually returned home empty-handed.
However, the home team is eighth on the scale, just above Newcastle United itself with a one-point mattress.
Meanwhile, the Magpies quickly returned to victory last week, beating Crystal Palace at home with a score of 1-0. The guests have lost two points in the last five elite games.
In any case, visitors must still ensure the consistency of their departures this quarter. Miserably, they have alternated wins and losses in their last five road trips, the last of which was defeated by Burnely with a score of 1-0.
It should also be mentioned that the guests did not behave well in their previous visits to Old Trafford. They have been losers on each of their last two trips here, and they only have one victory over their last five.
With the Red Devils stumbling once on the ground so far, the absolute favorites are undoubtedly the men of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
In addition, the hosts put their branded shoes in front of the local crowd. Sixteen of the twenty-six goals scored this season come from their home games.
Given the fact that three of his last five h2h meetings at this stadium have also been outstanding, count more than 2.5 goals in the final scoreboards, of course, this week.
