The top four spots are being played for in the 4.30 pm kick off in the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Manchester United at St. James’ Park on Sunday afternoon.
Manchester United are currently in third place, where they are performing fairly well, while the Magpies are currently in fifth place, where they are very close to the Champions League sports. The only things that separate the two teams are two spots and three points.
Only Liverpool has been able to defeat Howe’s team on their home turf this season, and even then, the 10 men of Newcastle gave Klopp’s team quite a run for their money, so Manchester United will need to keep their wits about them if they want to beat a Magpies team that is looking to correct their loss in the EFL Cup Final.

Newcastle United Squad
Eddie Howe will select the starting eleven against Manchester United from these players:
Loris Karius, Mark Gillespie, Martin Dubravka, Nick Pope, Daniel Burn, Emil Krafth, Fabian Schaer, Harrison Ashby, Jamaal Lascelles, Jamal Lewis, Javier Manquillo, Kieran Trippier, Matt Targett, Paul Dummett, Sven Botman, Bruno Guimaraes, Elliot Anderson, Jacob Murphy, Joseph Willock, Matt Ritchie, Matthew Longstaff, Miguel Almiron, Ryan Fraser, Sean Longstaff, Alexander Isak, Allan Saint-Maximin, Anthony Gordon, Callum Wilson, Joelinton.
Manchester United Squad
Below is the full team squad of Manchester United. The manager Ten Hag will pick his starting XI against Newcastle United from these players:
David De Gea, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, Lisandro Martinez, Luke Shaw, Christian Eriksen, Diogo Dalot, Raphael Varane, Casemiro, Antony, Jadon Sancho, Tyrell Malacia, Fred, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Wout Weghorst, Scott McTominay, Anthony Martial, Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, Anthony Elanga, Alejandro Garnacho, Marcel Sabitzer, Donny van de Beek, Jack Butland, Tom Heaton, Brandon Williams, Phil Jones, Facundo Pellistri, Kobbie Mainoo.
Even if Manchester United had no trouble putting Newcastle to the sword at Wembley Stadium, Manchester United has Casemiro missing, who dominated the game back in Feb.
Because Newcastle United very rarely loses in front of their own fans since Eddie Howe came to the club, the game may end in a tie after a hard-fought battle; yet, neither manager will be particularly pleased with this outcome.
Score Prediction: 1-1
