Manchester United vs Newcastle Prediction & Betting Tips - Premier League

 by Ian John | in Premier League Prediction

Manchester United face Newcastle United in the Premier League on Wednesday night with both teams battling hard for a place in Europe next season. In addition to challenging on the league front, United also have a chance to qualify through winning the FA Cup Final, where they face rivals Manchester City for the second time in 12 months. Prior to that they’ll complete their league campaign starting with this game against Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United. Newcastle are in good form, with just one defeat in their last eight games. With the home side eighth in the table and Newcastle sixth, three points ahead, a win is a must for Manchester United given Newcastle’s far superior goal difference. However, Newcastle are also battling Chelsea for a spot in Europe, so they too will feel they need maximum points from this game. All of which should set up an exciting match at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Manchester United - Newcastle: Form Analysis

Manchester United boss Erik Ten Hag is under real pressure in the hot seat at Old Trafford. The Dutchman has seen his team win just twice in their last 11 games and they have lost both their last two matches, a 4-0 thrashing by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park and a 1-0 home defeat to Arsenal at the weekend. The highest they can finish in the Premier League table is sixth, and to achieve that they need to beat Newcastle here, win at Brighton on the final day, and hope both Newcastle and Chelsea do not win either of their two remaining games. United fans and former players have been hugely critical of their teams efforts in recent weeks and anything less than a win here would only intensify those feelings of dissatisfaction. 

Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United have hit good form a little late in the season, but five wins in their last eight games and only one defeat in that run, sees them sixth in the table. If Tottenham fail to pick up another point, Newcastle (or Chelsea) could squeeze into fifth if they were to win both their two remaining games. Newcastle’s biggest issue this season has been their away form. However, they have won two of their last three on the road as well as four of their last seven. They will also be confident having beaten Manchester United 1-0 earlier this season at St James’ Park. In fact, Newcastle have won all the last three against United without conceding a goal and they have lost just one of the last six matches between the two teams.

Manchester United & Newcastle Squad Analysis

Manchester United’s lengthy injury list shows no real signs of improving for this game, but several players could be back in time for the FA Cup Final. Tyrell Malacia is ruled out until next season and Mason Mount is also out but with no date set for his return. However, Victor Lindelof, Anthony Martial, Lisandro Martinez, and Raphael Varane could be back for the final game of the season at the weekend. Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire both could be in contention for the FA Cup Final a week on Saturday. Several players with knocks should be fit to play against Newcastle however including Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Scott McTominay. 

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe also has a lengthy injury list. Sven Botman and Jamaal Lascelles are both out for the long term with serious knee injuries. Sandro Tonali remains suspended until next season, while Lewis Miley and Joe Willock have both been ruled out for the rest of the season. Matt Target remains on the sidelines with no return date from his achilles issue. On the positive side, both Fabian Schar and Callum Wilson could be in contention to play some part at Old Trafford.

Our Manchester United vs Newcastle Prediction

Neither Man Utd nor Newcastle have anything to gain from a draw in this match, so we expect this to be a game where both teams go for it. Both sides have been in amongst the goals of late, but they are also finding it tough to keep clean sheets in matches. Picking a result for this game with the two teams’ current record is tricky. So our prediction for Manchester United v Newcastle United is for both teams to score and over 2.5 goals to be scored in the game.

Prediction :

Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goals

Manchester United vs Newcastle - Other Interesting Predictions

Alexander Isak (Newcastle United) to score at any time

With 20 Premier League goals to his name, Alexander Isak has been Newcastle's main striking threat this season. Most impressively, those 20 goals have come in just 28 games (including eight in his last eight appearances). He is without doubt Newcastle's focal point in attack and a huge threat on the counter-attack. With a draw suiting neither team, we expect plenty of chances to be created in this game. Therefore, our second Man Utd v Newcastle prediction is for Alexander Isak to score at any time in the game.
