The Line: Manchester United -223 / Draw +350 / Newcastle United +800 -- Over/Under: 2.5
Manchester United are set to host Newcastle United at Old Trafford for the next round of the English Premier League. Both sides are struggling and will be desperate to get a good result from this fixture.
Manchester United have been in very bad form recently and the team looks to be in civil war. Mourinho seems to have lost control of his players and the side looks in freefall. This was best displayed in their loss to West Ham United last weekend. The problems got worse for Manchester United as they failed to beat Valencia in the UEFA Champions League and with the fans turning on the team, there are big problems. The positive for Manchester United is the form of Lukaku who seems to be better than the issues and is consistently performing for the Red Devils. Manchester United will hope that they can win this match since it is the only way they can silence the critics.
On the other side of the coin, Newcastle United have been equally poor. The Magpies lost at home to Leicester City last weekend and currently have 2 points from all their matches this season. Newcastle United are yet to win a match this season and with the players looking terribly out of form, it is going to be hard to turn things around. The biggest issue for Newcastle United has been scoring goals as the team has only scored 4 times all season. Playing at Old Trafford is never easy and with the team lacking goals, Newcastle United could be beaten badly.
While Manchester United are in a bad situation, they have fortunately found an opponent who are in a worse situation. The Red Devils have talented players who should be good enough to beat a weak Newcastle United side at home.
