Newcastle Utd vs Manchester United Betting Tip and Predictions. In the most interesting match in Premier League on Tuesday night, Newcastle Utd take on Manchester United. Read below betting preview, useful info and predictions for this game.
Newcastle Utd stand in the relegation zone and they desperately need points in order to move up in the safer zone. Their performance is very poor this season. In the 20 matches this season they have managed to win only 4 games. Home team play better at home, where they scored 14 goals in 10 matches, and they will be fully motivated against Man Utd. Newcastle’s recent form is not at the high level. They lost the previous 4 games, including the last match against Watford in the FA Cup. Interesting thing is they failed to score in all those 4 matches (all games they lost with an identical results 1-0). The victory against United would be a big boost for home side in their relegation battle, but they have to give their best in order to make positive result.
Manchester United stand at the 4th position and have 9 points less than leader on the table – Arsenal. They started very well this season, but their recent performance wasn’t at the high level and they lost many points. In the last 7 Premier League matches, Red Devils have managed to win only one game and it was the victory against Swansea in the previous round. Visitors have very good defence, one of the best in league, but they have many problems in the attack. They scored “only 24 goals” in 20 matches this season, Martial scored 5, while Rooney have managed to hit the net only three times. If they want to stay in a race for the title they have to improve their performance in attack and it can happen from this game because Newcastle have one of the worst defences in Premier League.
