Man Utd v Newcastle

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Each of Newcastle’s three away defeats this season have been by a 1-0 scoreline
Expert verdict
Hopes of the Manchester clubs continuing to trade blows for the duration of a hotly contested title tussle have evaporated somewhat over the last few weeks. While the Manchester City juggernaut has powered on, United have spluttered their way through the last few weeks. Since smashing Crystal Palace 4-0 on the final day of September, each of United’s seven subsequent fixtures have been decided by one or two goals.It’s a similar story for Newcastle with seven of their last eight matches decided by the odd goal.
