Newcastle United v Manchester United betting tips

Posted on: 2nd January 2019

Manchester United haven’t turned into world-beaters since Jose Mourinho left Old Trafford, although they have started playing to their potential, enjoying emphatic wins over Cardiff, Huddersfield and Bournemouth.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his coaching team have got the side playing with smiles on their faces again, with the Red Devils having plundered twelve goals in the past three matches and there’s little to suggest that they’ll stop finding the net at St James’ Park.

Paul Pogba is enjoying a particularly strong lease of life, with the Frenchman having bagged a brace in his previous two matches and he clearly felt wronged by Mourinho during the first half of the season.

With Romelu Lukaku making scoring return off the bench against the Cherries, United have an abundance of attacking options, while Rafael Benitez has more limited options with his Newcastle team.

The Magpies sit in fifteenth place and they are three points off the relegation zone, with the festive period seeing them land a point against Fulham and Watford either side of a pounding from Liverpool.

They clearly aren’t playing this fixture at an ideal time now that United are enjoying a renaissance, although Benitez will be encouraged by the fact that their opponents haven’t kept a clean sheet in the Premier League for seven matches and that was a goalless draw against Crystal Palace.

The home side will aim to get on the front foot in this clash and we’re happy to bet on the visitors winning the game although both sides scoring could be the answer.
