Top four positions are on the agenda In the Premier League matchup that will take place on Sunday afternoon at St. James’ Park as Newcastle United face Manchester United.
The Red Devils are currently in third position, where they are doing quite well, while the Magpies are currently in fifth place, where they are knocking on the door of those Champions League spots. Only two places and three points separate the two teams.
A score draw is a likely outcome because Newcastle went from being a team that kept clean sheets for fun to one that has conceded in each of their last eight matches across all competitions. As a result, Newcastle is not the defensive force they once were during the earlier stages of the campaign, and only two of their most recent five Premier League home games have resulted in victories.
However, only Liverpool has been able to beat Howe’s team on their own turf this season, and even then, the 10 men of Newcastle gave the red half of Merseyside 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 EFL Cup Final defeat.
