Barclays Premier League – Newcastle United v Manchester United, Sunday 7th October. kick off: 4pm GMT
Sunday’s game will be between Newcastle, who are 8th in the Premier League (joint with Arsenal and Fulham), and Manchester United, sitting 3rd (alongside Manchester City). Last year the Magpies finished in 5th and Manchester United in 2nd position.
The Toon have recorded two victories, three draws and one defeat thus far, with 8 goals for and as many against. In their previous match, they recorded a 2-2 draw against Reading last Saturday. Both of Newcastle’s goals were scored by Demba Ba.
At home, Newcastle have had only wins and draws (2 and 1 respectively).
Going into their last match the Red Devils were favourites to win, but Tottenham pulled off a memorable victory. Manchester United will view the 3-2 defeat as a missed opportunity. Manchester United’s goals came courtesy of Nani and Shinji Kagawa. Sir Alex Ferguson loves to take the game to the other side, with his team boasting the best attack in the Premier League. So far they’ve scored 14 times. This season they have had four wins and two defeats.
In spite of the fact that Newcastle are playing at home it will be tremendously hard for them to overcome the clear superiority of Manchester United. In a match as one-sided as this, handicap betting is a wise move. Also putting money on an over result at 14/5 might be a sensible approach. Check out Newcastle United vs Manchester United odds now.
