The end is nigh for Ten Hag?

Bar reaching the FA Cup final has been a disappointing second year for Erik Ten Hag as Man Utd boss. The record 20-time English champions will finish below fifth place this season, and their current form is worrying.  They have lost nine matches at Old Trafford in all competitions this season; they have never had ten home defeats in a single season.

United could still be without their skipper Bruno Fernandes; the Red Devils have lost both of their last two Premier League games with him absent. Indeed, since the Portuguese international made his debut in the competition, the Red Devils have won 40% of their league games and averaged 1.3 points per game when he hasn’t started, compared to a 53% win rate and 1.8 points per game when he has been in their starting XI.

Furthermore, having only won one of their first ten away league games this season (D2 L7), Newcastle have since won four of their last seven on the road (L3). The Magpies are looking to win back-to-back away league games for just a second time in 2023-24 (also in Jan/Feb).
