Manchester United vs Newcastle Prediction
Against a Newcastle United team that is really bored, Manchester United is expected to have their work cut out for them. Due to their absence from European rivalry this season, the Jaybirds are also better rested than the Red Fallen Angels.
However, Ten Witch’s team has enough star power and in-structure talent to force a successful conclusion. With nothing to distinguish the two camps, it will be a fiercely contested topic.
Newcastle United will likely defeat Manchester United 2-1.
Manchester United vs Newcastle Team News
After losing to Omonia at home on Thursday, Man United might be excused for feeling anxious. Nigerian goalkeeper Francis Uzoho made 11 saves to prevent the Red Devils from securing a spot in the knockout phase. Raphael Varane was able to get some rest for the team, but many other players participated and will need to prepare for a rapid turnaround.
Following a strong start to the season, Newcastle is eager for another headline-grabbing success as the Magpies might reasonably push their race to enter European competition in fast-forward gear. Wins over teams like United would undoubtedly be helpful.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; Fernandes, Casemiro, Eriksen; Antony, Ronaldo, Rashford
Newcastle United possible starting lineup:
Pope; Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn; S Longstaff, Guimaraes, Willock; Saint-Maximin, Wilson, Almiron
