Manchester United vs. Newcastle Predictions

Prediction, Odds & Betting Tips for Manchester United vs. Newcastle at English Premier League

  • Where: Old Trafford, Manchester, England
  • When: Thursday, May 16, 03:00 AM

United is thinking about the FA Cup finals, but they need to be very focused on this match, which could also be very important to them. The Red Devils are in a tough spot because they could miss the European competitions next season. The same goes for Newcastle, who currently sits sixth but with just two more points than their upcoming opponents.

Manchester United

Erik Ten Hag’s place is safe for the moment, but our hunch tells us that he needs to win the FA Cup finals to keep his job. But prior to that, the Red Devils need to win a few games to stay in the race for the European stage. They have 54 points, the same as Chelsea, and two fewer points than Newcastle. Therefore, this game is a clash of direct rivals, which creates a certain pressure ahead of the kickoff. 

What can we say about United’s form? They oscillate a lot, frustrating their fans and, in general, performing under expectations. The most recent loss to Crystal Palace, 4-0 at Selhurst, was a hard slap in the face, but to be honest, the Red Devils got used to that in the past two years. 

In seven of the previous ten home appearances, United allowed a goal, while the same number of events ended with over 2.5 hits. 

Newcastle

Since the start of April, Newcastle has been in very good form. They have just one loss in the past seven games, one tie, and five wins. If the Magpies played like this throughout the entire year, they would surely be in the zone leading to the Champions League. 

Eddie Howe’s attack has been excellent lately. Newcastle comes into this event following back-to-back triumphs at home against Sheffield United, 5-1, and on the road against Burnley, 1-4. 

There are certain issues in the back line, but an excellent offensive potential sorts out all that.

Manchester United vs Newcastle Head to Head

Newcastle was better at home in the first EPL meeting of the year, 1-0. However, they had one more clash prior to that one, which was in the EFL. Newcastle destroyed the Red Devils at Trafford, 0-3. 

Magpies have three wins in a row over United all with a clean sheet. 

Manchester United vs. Newcastle Predictions

United is terrible, and their defense is mediocre. The attack still shows signs of life and delivers regularly. When looking at Newcastle, they, too, have that disbalance between a bit weaker defense and a strong attack, and we will take both teams netting here. 

Our verdict: Both teams to score
