Man United v Newcastle Predictions 

Manchester United have shown that they are difficult to beat of late, while Newcastle United are far from convincing and have been struggling in the Premier League. Red Devils midfielder Bruno Fernandes just keeps on impressing and he is good value to score again on Sunday.

  • Man United have scored a joint top 25 home goals this season (Premier League).
  • Man United have seen over 5.5 goals in their last 2 home matches (Premier League).
  • Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes has scored 5 goals in his last 5 matches (all competitions).
  • Man United have recorded back to back 4-1 wins over Newcastle (Premier League).
  • Newcastle have lost 4 of their last 5 matches against Man United (Premier League).
  • Newcastle have lost 6 of last 7 away matches (all competitions).


Manchester United hold a 88-43 advantage over Newcastle, with 39 draws, in 170 meetings. 

Manchester United romped home past Newcastle 4-1 at St James’ Park in the reverse English Premier League fixture in October 2020. Harry Maguire, Bruno Fernandes, Aaron Wan Bissaka, and Marcus Rashford all found the back of the net.

Man United Form 

Manchester United are undefeated in six games across all competitions, drawing three and winning three.

They drew 1-1 with West Brom last weekend in the English Premier League. Bruno Fernandes’ equaliser cancelled out Mbaye Diagne’s early opener at The Hawthorns.

Fernandes scored twice on Thursday night as United thrashed Spanish side Real Sociedad 4-0 in the UEFA Europa League. Marcus Rashford and Daniel James also grabbed a goal each.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s charges have lost just one match in their last 18 Premier League outings – a shock 2-1 loss at Old Trafford to bottom of the table Sheffield United was the only negative during that period.

Over 5.5 goals have been scored in two of Manchester United’s last two home matches in the Premier League. A 3-3 draw with Everton followed a 9-0 victory over Southampton. Same again?

Man United Injuries and Team News

Donny van de Beek and Edinson Cavani should return to the squad this weekend. Cavani could be named in the starting XI after featuring against West Brom last weekend.

Paul Pogba is ruled out until March with a thigh injury and Phil Jones remains unavailable with a knee injury. 

Mason Greenwood could start in place of Anthony Martial. 

Newcastle Form

Newcastle United have won just two of their last 15 games across all competitions. The Magpies lost 2-0 to Chelsea last weekend and find themselves in a serious relegation tussle.

Steve Bruce’s team have lost seven of their last nine Premier League games and conceded 16 goals during that time. 

Newcastle have won once in their last seven away fixtures. That win was 2-0 at Everton in late January.

The Magpies have failed to score in five of their last seven away matches in the English Premier League, though, and have conceded 15 goals in that run.

Newcastle Injuries and Team News

Jeff Hendrick will return from his recent suspension and could return to the Newcastle midfield this weekend. 

Federico Fernandez is also set to return from a thigh injury and could partner Ciaran Clark at centre back. 

Top goal scorer Callum Wilson is ruled out with a hamstring injury.

Centre-back Fabian Schar is also out long term with a knee ligament injury and right-back Javi Manquillo remains out until late March with an ankle ligament injury.
