Manchester United vs Newcastle United

, KO: 20:00 May 15, 2024, Old Trafford
Newcastle United

A key clash in the Premier League’s top-six race takes place at Old Trafford on Wednesday night, as Manchester United meet Newcastle United.

Despite triumphing in just one of their last eight top-flight fixtures, Man United are still in the mix to secure a place in Europe next season.

After being crushed 4-0 by Crystal Palace last Monday night, the Red Devils were then narrowly beaten 1-0 by Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday, on an afternoon where my corner tip clicked.

That pair of setbacks has left Erik ten Hag’s side occupying eighth spot in the table, two places and three points adrift of their latest opponents Newcastle.

The Magpies’ hopes of securing a quickfire return to Europe were dented on Saturday, as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Brighton at St James’ Park.

However, Eddie Howe’s side remain masters of their own destiny, as banking maximum points from their final two league matches of the season would almost certainly be enough to stamp the Toon Army’s Europa League tickets.

How the bookies view it: Toon Army to triumph

Newcastle are 11/8 favourites on Bet 365 to secure the victory that would assure them of a top-seven finish in this year's Premier League.

Following another substandard season, Manchester United take to the Old Trafford turf for the final time this term as 13/8 outsiders on Bet 365. United have drawn two of their last three home games and a repeat here can be backed at 3/1 on Bet 365.

Head to head: Red Devils looking to stop the rot

Newcastle have taken top honours from each of their last three meetings with Manchester United. Eddie Howe’s side earned a 1-0 win in this season’s reverse fixture, not to mention they cruised to a 3-0 victory at Old Trafford in the fourth round of this year’s Carabao Cup.

Man United have won just one of the last six meetings, last coming out on top in the 2023 Carabao Cup final courtesy of a 2-0 win at Wembley.

Players to watch: Isak looking to reignite

After failing to make the net bulge against Brighton on Saturday, Newcastle striker Alexander Isak has been priced up at 11/10 on Bet 365 to get back on the goal trail at Old Trafford.

Much-maligned Man United forward Antony is never afraid to let fly and he looks worthy of interest to register a shot on target at 4/5 on Bet 365.

Predicted lineups

Manchester United's Amad Diallo was forced off with a knee injury against Arsenal on Sunday so fellow winger Antony could come into the starting XI on Wednesday night.

Kieran Trippier marked his return from injury by coming off the bench against Brighton on Saturday and the Newcastle skipper could get the nod from the off at Old Trafford.

Man United: Onana; Wan-Bissaka, Casemiro, Evans, Dalot; Mainoo, Amrabat, Antony, McTominay, Garnacho; Hojlund 

Newcastle: Dubravka; Livramento, Krafth, Burn, Hall; Longstaff, Guimaraes, Anderson; Gordon, Isak, Murphy

Anything else catch the eye? Player-based Bet Builder holds appeal

I successfully backed both Bruno Guimaraes and Diogo Dalot to each commit a foul when these two sides met at St James’ Park earlier this season and I’m more than happy to support the same formula again on Wednesday night at 20/23 with Bet 365.

United defender Dalot, who was deployed at left-back last time out, is averaging 1.2 fouls per-game in the Premier League this season, making exactly two misdemeanours in each of his last two outings.

Meanwhile, no-nonsense Newcastle midfielder Bruno Guimaraes is averaging 1.4 fouls per 90 , committing at least one offence in eight of his last nine top-flight appearances.
