Manchester United vs Newcastle United. Shape of the Teams

Manchester United are set to host Newcastle United on May 15 in the Premier League. The season for Erik Ten Hag’s men has been far from successful. Even if they manage to take sixth place and qualify for the Conference League, it’s hardly the ideal outcome.


With two rounds remaining in the Premier League, Man United is in eighth place, three points behind the top six. In the last two matches, Manchester United suffered two defeats – a 0-1 loss at home against Arsenal and a 0-4 drubbing away to Crystal Palace.

Following last season’s campaign, the Magpies returned to the Champions League for the first time in more than twenty years. However, they were eliminated at the end of the group stage and have since lost their grip on a top-four finish in the Premier League.

However, Newcastle could still book a place in the Conference League. In fact, a victory in the upcoming game over Manchester United will be a big step forward. In the last round, Newcastle played out a 1-1 draw at home with Brighton, extending their undefeated streak to three games in a row.

Manchester United vs Newcastle United Prediction, Odds

Newcastle is in good shape, having won five of their last eight matches. In contrast, the Red Devils lost two games in a row, with a combined score of 0-5. Over the last ten matches, United has managed only one victory.

It’s worth noting that the hosts are plagued by numerous personnel problems, particularly in their defensive line. Bruno Fernandes, one of the current team’s leaders, is unlikely to play. Moreover, the Red Devils’ spirit is clearly in decline. Many players are waiting for Ten Hag’s resignation and are not giving their all on the pitch.

This situation indicates a good opportunity for the visitors to claim three points. Moreover, Newcastle has already defeated the Red Devils twice this season – including at Old Trafford in the League Cup. I expect a fairy performance from the guests and eventually a victory over the opposing side. 

Manchester United vs Newcastle United Betting Tip

I expect at least two goals from the guests. It’s highly likely that Manchester United will again deploy Casemiro and Evans at the heart of their defence. However, the Brazilian is not in top form and is playing out of position. Also, if you remember the goal scored by Arsenal, Casemiro was not defending properly, which was the main reason for the goal conceded. Evans, 36, has difficulty keeping up with playing matches every few days. 

Newcastle, on the other hand, has a flexible and fast attack that constantly seeks scoring opportunities.

United have conceded five goals in the last two rounds of the Premier League and more than one goal in seven of their last ten matches. 

Newcastle scored 10 goals in the last three rounds and three unanswered goals against Manchester at Old Trafford in the League Cup earlier in the season. On average, Newcastle scores 2.19 goals per league game. Therefore, I anticipate at least two goals from the Magpies.
