What Trueform says for Man Utd vs Newcastle
Manchester United have gone four games without a win in all competitions and look badly out of sorts heading into Saturday’s clash with Newcastle.
The Magpies have only picked up two points in seven Premier League games this season but have been competitive in some tough fixtures.
We reckon 7/2 for a draw is a tempting price and the way to go with our opening Man Utd vs Newcastle prediction.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
The pressure continues to mount on Jose Mourinho after United turned in yet another lacklustre display during a goalless draw with Valencia in the Champions League at Old Trafford.
That followed a miserable 3-1 Premier League loss at West Ham, while the Red Devils had previously shared the spoils with Wolves and crashed out of the EFL Cup against Derby at this venue.
Boos greeted the final whistle on Tuesday night after United pushed hard at the end but failed to produce enough quality to prevail.
Mourinho said: “I’m pleased with the effort, I am pleased with the commitment, I am pleased with the improvement, but I’m not pleased, of course, with the result, which is a bad one.”
Last Man Utd line-up: De Gea, Bailly, Smalling, Shaw, Valencia, Pogba, Fellaini, Matic, Sanchez, Lukaku, Rashford.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
Newcastle are only off the bottom of the table on goal difference after going down 2-0 at home to Leicester in arguably their worst result of the current Premier League campaign.
However, the Magpies had previously shown plenty of spirit in 2-1 defeats to Tottenham, Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal.
Rafael Benitez said: “We have to keep going, keep working hard, because we cannot forget that we have played against some of the top sides in the league.”
Newcastle did manage to grind out 0-0 draws at Cardiff and Crystal Palace and this could be another occasion where Benitez’s defensive tactics come to the fore.
With their hosts short on confidence up front, 31/4 for a goalless stalemate is worth adding to our Man Utd vs Newcastle betting tips.
Last Newcastle line-up: Dubravka, Clark, Lascelles, Yedlin, Diame, Ritchie, Kenedy, Atsu, Ayoze Perez, Joselu.
MAN UTD 0-0 Valencia
NEWCASTLE 0-2 Leicester
Head-to-head: Newcastle 1-0 Man Utd, Man Utd 4-1 Newcastle, Newcastle 3-3 Man Utd, Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle, Newcastle 0-1 Man Utd, Man Utd 3-1 Newcastle
