New Update
Premier League

Recently, Manchester United has been a little lackluster as they prepare to host Newcastle United in an EPL match on Wednesday. With their exciting 4-2 victory against relegation-bound Sheffield United, the Red Devils had won only one of their previous four league matches. Manchester United's chances of playing in the top European league next season were severely diminished after their 1-1 tie. 

They will now face off against Chelsea, Tottenham, and Newcastle to get a chance to participate in the Europa League next season. With a victory against the Magpies on Wednesday, they can go up to sixth place, behind only Tottenham by three points. Tottenham take on title-chasing Manchester City in another matchup this week. A victory would also help Newcastle's chances of winning a berth in the Europa League after their dismal 1-1 home draw with Brighton. At Old Trafford, we anticipate high competition from both teams.

Head To Head And Previous Matches

Erik Ten Hag's second season as Manchester United manager has been dismal, despite Bar reaching the FA Cup final. The present form of the record-setting 20-time English champions is concerning, and they will finish lower than fifth place this season. They have lost nine games in all competitions played at Old Trafford this season. It has never happened in a single season that they have lost 10 home games.

The Red Devils have lost their last two Premier League matches without captain Bruno Fernandes, and he may still be out with an injury. The Red Devils have won 40% of their league games and averaged 1.3 points per game when he hasn't started since the Portuguese international made his debut in the tournament. On the other hand, when he has started, they have won 53% of their games and averaged 1.8 points per game.

More importantly, after losing seven of their first 10 league games away from home this season (D2 L7), Newcastle have won four of their past seven road games (L3). The Magpies aim for record-tying back-to-back away league victories in 2023–24 (also in January and February).

Manchester United x Newcastle Team News

On Wednesday night, United will be without key players, including Tyrell Malacia, Luke Shaw, Raphael Varane, and Harry Maguire, due to an extensive injury list at Old Trafford. But ten Hag's squad is hopeful that Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford can recover in good time.

Though he has been the subject of much criticism lately, Casemiro, a former star for Real Madrid, should start alongside Johnny Evans in the back four again. Even though the Danish international Rasmus Hojlund has only scored once since mid-February, he will lead United's attack.

Dutch international Sven Botman will miss this season after knee surgery in March, as announced by Newcastle. On Wednesday night, Howe's team will be without notable players like Jamaal Lascelles, Fabian Schar, Lewis Miley, and Joe Willock, who was once at Arsenal.

Leading the assault will be offensive talisman Alexander Isak, who has had a fantastic Premier League season thus far, scoring 20 goals in the league. Nick Pope, the England international, will have to settle for a bench role again, even though he was back in Howe's squad earlier this month.

Our Predictions

Newcastle Draw no bet @ 1.81 on

The Magpies have won seven of their previous eight Premier League games and will seek a considerable statement win to solidify their spot in Europe. United have shown serious problems thus far this season, but the Magpies' recent dominating record should encourage them. Their most recent three matches across all competitions have ended in 6-0 victories for them, including a 1-0 triumph on December 2nd when they welcomed Wednesday's hosts to St. James' Park.
