Betting tips Manchester United vs. Newcastle United

Newcatle dreaming of Europe as they face Man Utd

Man Utd host a resurgent Newcastle managed by former United legend Steve Bruce. Can the Magpies dream of European football in 2020? Have a read of our preview here:

United can smell the Champions League

It is ridiculous to think Man Utd can still make the Champions League places after the poor season they have been suffering but that is exactly what could happen.

You expect some big names to join the club in January and to be within four points of Chelsea, who occupy fourth place, will make 2020 an intriguing year for Red Devil supporters.

The defeat against Watford, a side who have been woeful this season, will have been a shock to the system. United were well off the pace following a run of seven games without defeat and it could cost them in their quest for European football.

Newcastle will know they have a chance if they remain organised and resolute, something Steve Bruce side’s are often good at.

Bruce can dream

Newcastle have really turned around their flagging fortunes going on a run of just two defeats in nine games. They now sit level on points with Manchester United and only four points behind fourth-place Chelsea.

It has been an amazing switch for the Magpies, helped by three wins in the last four including an important 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace last weekend.

They have not lost at home since the opening day defeat against Arsenal and this have been huge to their season.

Newcastle United are unbeaten in their last eight home Premier League matches (W4 D4), their longest run at St James' Park since in April 2012 (nine unbeaten).

Having St James Park as a fortress will be vital if Bruce’s side are to meet the ambitions of the fan base but they really are overachieving considering the off-field issues regarding ownership.

The midfield pairing of Miguel Almiron and Jonjo Shelvey were important last weekend with their Paraguayan star netting the winner, however, neither were better than Paul Dummett.

The full-back was simply superb, putting in eight crosses and making 26 passes in the opposition half to highlight what an important outlet he can be down the left.

The challenge now for Newcastle is to improve their away form. Six defeats from nine on the road has been an issue but they will head to Old Trafford full of confidence.

Man Utd v Newcastle betting tip

Manchester United are obvious favourites but with Newcastle in decent form, it is worth looking at double chance Newcastle to win or draw at odds of 201/100 with Royal Panda.
