Match Preview & Team News
Newcastle United are in a huge crisis coming into the last game of the 8th round in the Premier League. They were not pulling up any trees lately and will head into the tie against Manchester United winless in five consecutive games in all competitions. Steve Bruce has reasons to be worried mainly because of the last two displays shown by his men.
The Magpies were outclassed in the previous home fixture by the likes of Brighton & Hove Albion but they somehow managed to hold on to a goalless draw two weeks ago. Nevertheless, they ran out of luck last weekend when they were brutally beaten by Leicester City 5-0 at King Power Stadium. Such a dreadful spell of form dropped the team down to the 19th (penultimate) position in the league ladder. Can Brice find the way to raise the spirits inside his dressing room ahead of the important clash against the Red Devils?
The visitors also got off to a subpar start to the season. They just can’t catch the right rhythm with clear limits in the squad depth. The good news for Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer is the return of Paul Pogba who spent 90 minutes on the pitch in a 1-1 draw to Arsenal on Monday evening.
Nevertheless, the Red Devils are yet to clinch their maiden away win of the campaign. They drew two and lost one of the three league matches on the road, scoring no more than two goals in the process.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
There is little value in backing the away win pick at 17/20 odds in spite of Newcastle’s dreadful spell of form. We will go for the draw at the 5/2 odds as the main bet instead.
Goals Market Prediction
Neither of the two outfits can be proud of their attacking performances so far in the season. This is why we will back the Under 2.5 goals FT pick as an alternative option at 8/11odds.
