Manchester United vs Newcastle: prediction for the English Premier League fixture
Manchester United welcome Newcastle to Old Trafford in a Premier League fixture on Saturday, September 11. Will Newcastle put up a fight? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Manchester United gave a great performance last season and even had been on top of the Premier League table for some time. However, they were overtaken by Manchester City by 12 points. The Red Devils chalked up 21 wins and 74 points, which allowed them to finish second.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men also lost the second most important European club trophy: in the Europa League final, Man United were defeated by Villarreal in a penalty shootout.
The team's transfers include Jadon Sancho from Borussia, Rafael Varane, and Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus. In the first three rounds of 2021/2022 Premier League, Man United beat Leeds (5:1), drew with Southampton (1:1), and defeated Wolverhampton (1:0).
Jones and Rashford are injured. Fredis suspended and Henderson is isolated after testing positive for COVID-19.
The six-time Premier League champion, Newcastle got only 12 victories and 9 draws last season, finishing 12th in the table. The team mounted a three-game winning streak at the end of the season, but couldn't make it into the Top-10 anyway.
In the summer, Newcastle signed Joe Willock from Arsenal for 29,4 million. At the start of the new football year, Newcastle lost three games in a row: to West Ham (2:4) and Aston Villa (0:2) in the Premier League, and to Burnley in the League Cup (0:1).
Before the international break, the Magpies scored their first Premier League point: they drew at home with Southampton (2:2).
Newcastle will have to cope without Dummett, Darlow, Anderson, Dubravka, Shelvey, Wilson, Almiron, and Hayden.
Manchester United have won 3 of the last 4 matches.
In 2 of the last 3 head-to-head games, goals were scored in both halves.
This bet played in 2 of the last 3 head-to-head games.

The visitors have a long list of injuries, which makes an already bleak start look even worse. The hosts should win this fixture. If Cristiano Ronaldo appears on the pitch, that will give the fans even more positive emotions, and boost the team's morale.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-2) to Manchester United
