⚡Manchester United vs Newcastle United Betting Tips

Manchester United vs Newcastle United predictions

We are in the final week of the Premier League season and these two teams still have something to play for.

Manchester United and Newcastle United, separated in the table by just three points, are both contenders for European football.

Newcastle are currently in sixth place, which will be a Europa League place if Manchester City beat Manchester United in the FA Cup final later this month.

In this scenario, seventh place would be the only place in the Europa Conference League. Chelsea have that prize in their hands right now, with United three points behind them as things stand.

Erik ten Hag’s side didn’t help themselves this weekend with a 1-0 home defeat to Arsenal. The Gunners weren’t at their best at Old Trafford, but they still cruised to an easy victory to return to the top of the league.

There were extenuating circumstances. Indeed, given the large number of players absent through injury, a 1-0 defeat was not such a bad result. Lisandro Martinez, Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane, Bruno Fernandes, Mason Mount, Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford played no part against a full Arsenal team.

Ten Hag will hope to at least have Martinez, Fernandes and Rashford back on Wednesday, when United look to avoid an ignominious 10th home defeat of this Premier League campaign.

The Red Devils sit ninth overall at home in the division, slightly ahead of Fulham and West Ham United. Old Trafford is no longer a place rival clubs fear.

This is a problem United will need to resolve in the next term. We don’t yet know if it will be Ten Hag’s responsibility to do so, or if the club will look to replace him over the summer.

The Dutchman could benefit from a stay of execution due to a lack of other options, although there is an argument that United are currently one of the worst-coached teams in the Premier League. This does not reflect well on their manager.

Manchester United vs Newcastle United predictions

Manchester United and Newcastle United are still in the running for European qualification.

Newcastle winner – 13/10 (Paddy Power)

Both of these teams have fallen back from last season, when Manchester United finished third and Newcastle United fourth.

Yet Newcastle’s fall was less dramatic and more understandable. Making the top four last season was quite an achievement. It was always going to be difficult to replicate that, and an injury crisis throughout the campaign made it almost impossible.

Yet Newcastle are exactly the type of club that should take the Europa League seriously. Victories against Manchester United and Brentford this week would secure sixth place, leaving Newcastle waiting to see if Manchester City can do them any favors in the FA Cup final.

Eddie Howe’s side were held to a 1-1 draw against Brighton & Hove Albion last time out, but they have been in pretty good form of late, losing just one of their last eight matches.

Newcastle will also take confidence from their 3-0 win at Old Trafford in the EFL Cup earlier this season.

Tip Newcastle to win at 13/10 with Paddy Power

Over 3.5 goals – 3/4 (Paddy Power)

To be fair to Manchester United, they have at least been entertaining to watch for much of the season.

Their games since the start of the year have been particularly enjoyable due to their end-to-end nature and general chaos factor.

Without Andre Onana and some questionable opposition, United would be lower in the table: they rank fifth for expected goals in 2023/24.

Newcastle were also obligatory for much of the campaign. Only the front three have scored more goals than the Magpies, for whom Anthony Gordon and Alexander Isak have been outstanding in attack.

Newcastle’s matches have averaged a league-high 3.78 goals, partly because they have not been as defensively secure as Howe would have liked.

Both teams will line up with weakened defensive lines on Wednesday, so we could expect an exciting encounter.

Anthony Gordon will score anytime – 15/8 (Paddy Power)

Isak is Newcastle’s top scorer with 20 goals and the Sweden international is duly the favorite in this market for the meeting with Manchester United.

Gordon is, however, available at slightly longer odds, which will appeal to many. The England international has enjoyed a fantastic campaign in the North East, scoring 10 goals and providing just as many assists.

Arsenal left striker Leandro Trossard scored against United this weekend. Gordon plays in the same position and will cause Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Casemiro a lot of problems with his directness and intensity.

Gordon has become much more reliable in front of goal, with a better end product than he was in his Everton days.

Back Anthony Gordon to score anytime at 15/8 with Paddy Power
