Man United were in Europa League action on Thursday night when they faced Cyrpiot side Omonia Nicosia who are managed by former Celtic boss Neil Lennon. In the Premier League, they will be looking to build on a positive performance when defeating Everton 2-1 at Goodison Park last time out.

At Old Trafford, the Red Devils have been strong this season winning three of four played in the top-flight including defeats of Arsenal and Man United. Each of the last three played here in the league have seen both teams net.

Newcastle come into this one full of confidence after grabbing nine goals in their last two matches and two successive victories. Miguel Almiron is in form with three in his last two while Bruno Guimares grabbed a brace last time out.

Away from home, the Magpies have been a mixed bag with one victory (over Fulham), two draws (against Wolves and Brighton) and one defeat (to Liverpool). Both teams to score has happened in each of their last three on the road and four of five.

Man Utd vs Newcastle: Match Stats

Man United looked decent against Everton but they face a Newcastle side who are well rested having had no game in midweek. The Red Devils had Europa League action on Thursday and the last thing they would want is to face a Magpies side with nine goals in their last two. Back the visitors to come out with something by taking them and the draw in the double chance market.

This fixture could have goals and one player who might be involved in them is Bruno Guimaraes who grabbed a braced last time out. David De Gea is a strong shot-stopper but if he has one big weakness it is getting down low to shots from a distance. The Newcastle man netted from outside the box last weekend and at 16/1 with Sky Bet looks worth taking to do so again here.
