After losing three of the last four Newcastle United will be looking to bounce back with a performance agaist one of the biggest teams in England. Alan Pardew's side have lots of attacking talent in the form of Loic Remy, Papa Cisse and Hatem Ben Arfa but as a team Newcastle have struggled lately. Tiote, Cissoko both miss the attaking talents of Frenchman Yohan Cabaye who was sold in the January transfer window. Newcastle fans will be looking for a bounce back from their team having lost badly in the last two outings by three and four goals.
David Moyes best moment as Manchester United boss came last Tuesday as United stifled Bayern Munich and came away with a credible 1-1 draw in the first leg of the quarter final of the Champions League. This was a game United actually should have won, creating the better chances but conceding possession. With the return leg against Bayern coming up on Wednesday next will David Moyes play his full squad or will the reserve team players get a start on Saturday? That is the question we need to ask before making any play on this game.
I would check the team sheet before taking this bet and this is probably my least favourite play of the weekend but if Manchester United play the majority of their first team I think we will see goals with two defences who have been leaky of late. Whatever about David Moyes starting his young attacking players I am certain Vidic and Ferdinand get a rest on Saturday before the return leg in Munich so this further strengthens the overs bet. Take the over 2.5 goals mark. Follow me on twitter@antonpippo
