Man United an end to a two-match losing streak versus Newcastle United

Manchester United are on a rotten run of form in the league, with back-to-back losses. It has got so bad that the Red Devils have cancelled their end-of-year awards banquet.

Will our algorithm forecast a win for Erik ten Hag’s floundering side?

Newcastle United will arrive at Old Trafford with the aim of putting a third straight loss on Manchester United. While the Red Devils are struggling, Newcastle are thriving.

The Magpies are unbeaten in three straight games, picking up seven points from nine on offer.

Last weekend, Newcastle picked up a 1-1 draw at home against Brighton. Wins against Sheffield United and Burnley preceded the draw with Brighton.

Although those wins came against already-relegated clubs, Eddie Howe’s men can only defeat the teams in front of them.

Man United have not fared well scoring against Newcastle in recent matches. The Magpies kept three consecutive clean sheets against United in their last three games in all competitions.

Despite Newcastle’s defence not being as strong as it was a season ago, it is getting better. The defence conceded just five goals in the last six Premier League games.

United will fancy their chances at home, however. The Red Devils scored nine goals in their last six games despite picking up just six points.

Thirty of Man United’s 54 points this season have come at Old Trafford. They have a +2-goal difference playing at home.

Newcastle have not played well away from St. James’ Park this season. Only 17 of their 57 points have come on the road in 2023-24.

Opponents outscored Newcastle 35-30 away from St. James’ Park. This could be United’s chance at picking up an important win ahead of the FA Cup final.

Ten Hag’s team can only finish as high as sixth in the Premier League standings. However, they would need to win their remaining two matches, while Newcastle and Chelsea do not.

Newcastle can finish fifth, but they too need help. The Magpies only chance of finishing fifth is to win their last two matches and Tottenhem lose their final two fixtures.

Eleven players are receiving treatment for United ahead of the match. The list of injured players includes Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Raphael Varane, and Victor Lindelof. Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes are major doubts to play.

Still, United have played well at home this season, while Newcastle have struggled, losing 10 times on the road. Our algorithm score prediction is for Manchester United to win 2-1 at home.
