Newcastle vs Manchester United Match Preview and Team News
Newcastle, theoretically the world’s richest club after its Saudi-backed takeover, is not considered part of the Big Six. Still, it has aspirations to break into the European places and eventually challenge for the Premier League title. The excellent appointment of Eddie Howe has accelerated that process, and the North East club is currently sitting fifth in the standings. There is a tangible feeling of momentum behind it, and St. James’ Park is never an easy ground to visit. For the first time in 24 years, Newcastle managed to qualify for the EFL Cup final but lost 2-0 to Manchester United. Howe’s team hit a rough patch of Premier League form at the most inopportune moment but returned to winning ways just before the international break, adding six more points to its season tally after beating Wolves and Nottingham with the same 2-1 scoreline. Sean Longstaff plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Allan Saint-Maximin plays excellently, he is fast in the one-on-one game, and he is unstoppable, he deserves to play in a better team.
Man United has made impressive progress this season, but its away results against top opposition have not been great. Only Newcastle, Manchester City, and Arsenal have earned more away points than United this season, but upon closer look, there is an argument to be made that Ten Hag’s troops have become flat-track bullies on their travels. The Red Devils did well to eliminate Fulham in the FA Cup quarter-finals, but they will have much bigger fish to fry against Newcastle. All Christian Eriksen, Alejandro Garnacho, and Donny van de Beek are sidelined with injuries, while Casemiro is banned for this clash. Both Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford should recover in time to face the Magpies. Jadon Sancho is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance. Fred found the right role in the team, he moves great in the middle of the field, and it isn’t easy to take the ball away from this guy.
