Manchester United vs Newcastle United 18 Nov 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Manchester United take on Newcastle in the late game on Saturday this weekend. This is a game between two of the biggest clubs in the country and as a result I am expecting a very exciting and lively game of football.

Manchester United will be at home this weekend and that is a big boost for the side since the home crowd at Old Trafford makes it very difficult for any team visiting. At this stage of the season, every game is a must-win for the Red Devils since their rivals, Manchester City, are winning and extending the gap at the top of the table. This should be a pretty easy win for the Red Devils but they will have to be careful since Rafa Benitez and his men will have a lot of fight.

At home, Newcastle are a very strong team. On the road, this is not the case. The Magpies are not a match for Manchester United and as a result they will play a defensive style of football. This has not been a strong suit for Newcastle United and as a result they might get in trouble this weekend. This team is outmatched in every department and away from home, I don’t think they stand a chance.

As far as betting is concerned, we are not getting a very good price on Manchester United winning and as a result I think we should avoid that bet. The value in this game is the over 2.5 goals and a result that is the best betting option. Manchester United should score 3 goals themselves so I think this is a safe bet.
