Man Utd v Newcastle Betting Preview
Stadium: Old Trafford
Channel: BT Sport
Man United welcome Newcastle to Old Trafford as Premier League football returns after the international break. United are now eight points behind Man City after their 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge. However, their home record has been superb this season, winning all eight of their games in all competitions and they’re yet to concede there in the league.
Newcastle, on the whole, have adjusted to life in the Premier League pretty well under their talismanic manager, Rafa Benitez. Their last two matches have ended in disappointing defeats to Burnley and Bournemouth but they still lie in a respectable 11th position. They will aim to frustrate United but it is a tall order.
Paul Pogba and Marcos Rojo are set to start after long spells out of the side. Zlatan Ibrahimovic could be on the bench. Jamaal Lascelles is out injured.
Potential Man United Starting XI: De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, Rojo Young; Matic, Pogba, Fellaini ; Lingard, Martial, Lukaku
Potential Newcastle United Starting XI: Elliot; Manquillo, Lejeune, Clark, Yedlin; Hayden, Shelvey; Perez, Diame, Ritchie; Joselu
Man United 2/7, Draw 9/2, Newcastle 12/1
