Newcastle United vs Manchester United Match Analysis and Prediction

Manchester United make their return to the Premier League since their humiliating 6-1 loss to Tottenham. The match schedules for Saturday at the St. James Park with kickoff at 8 pm.

Ole Gunnar is under immense pressure to post a good performance for the Red Devils with his job on the line. Their 6-1 loss to Tottenham marked their Premier League joint-most massive defeat. The side faces off against an in-form Newcastle United who are four points and seven places above them.

The last time Newcastle faced against Manchester United while being above them in the rankings is back in December 2013. The Magpies recorded a 1-0 win over them at Old Trafford. A repeat of the same this Saturday might compromise Ole Gunnar’s chances of extending his contract with the Red Devils.

It continues to be a dramatic season for defender Harry Maguire who received a red card in their international fixture against Denmark. The Red Devils captain came under heavy criticism over the past months. Defensive woes continue to be a problem for the side with Eric Bailly picking up another injury on international duty.

Steve Bruce recorded a deserving 3-1 win over Burnley that saw the side rise to the top half of the rankings. The Magpies are currently unbeaten in their past four games. A win this Saturday will mark their first back to back wins since last December.
