Manchester United vs Newcastle
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 21 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford.
The Red Devils are placed second in the table at the moment, and are going through a dry spell. The top-most spot is out of their reach now, and they should give their 100% here on, to finish at least runner-up.
However, as of now they are being furiously by the third-placed Leicester, who incidentally have the same number of points.
Likely, a win this Sunday is a must for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men. And it seems the stars have favored them, as they are pitted against one of the worst teams in the whole competition – the Magpies.
Steve Bruce’s men have been losing almost every game in the last several weeks barring some narrow escapes, and only three other teams have conceded more goals than them this season.
On that same note, the Devils have scored the most number of goals so far in the competition.
Going on, Solskjaer’s men also have a terrific h2h record against this rival over the past several years against this foe.
By all means, expect Manchester United to post the win this Sunday against Newcastle.
Manchester United vs Newcastle: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Devils had recorded 25 of the former 29 overall wins.
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 1-4 win for them.
- They had scored a total of 17 goals from the last eight meetings.
- The visitors have won just once at this stadium since 1993.
- The hosts had scored three or more goals in five of the former seven clashes at this ground.
Manchester United vs Newcastle Prediction
Solskjaer’s men were held to a 1-1 draw the last match-day on the road by West Brom. In the mean time, the Magpies lost 2-0 on the road the past game week, against Chelsea.
Going on, the Devils were unbeaten in 17 of their former 19 overall matches, and one of the total two losses during this stretch had come against arch-rivals, City.
On the other hand, their opposite number had lost eight of their preceding ten overall games, and they were winless in 13 of their past 15 fixtures.
On top of that, Solskjaer’s men had won the reverse match-up 1-4, and that too on the road.
Likely, expect Manchester United to post the three points on the board this Sunday
