Newcastle and Manchester United are the main rivals for the top four places and a UEFA Champions League spot. That’s why the meeting at St. James’ Park carries such a high significance.

Before Betting on Newcastle vs. Manchester United

The Magpies have an extremely big motive to beat the Red Devils. It isn’t only about the UCL place but also revenge for the lost EFL Cup finals, which saw Newcastle wasting an opportunity to take the first trophy since the middle of the previous century. 

Following five consecutive events in which they haven’t won, Newcastle managed to bounce with back-to-back victories over Wolves and in Nottingham versus Forest, both 2-1. Despite showing some signs of struggle, they still have the best defense in the league.

United had only one loss over the previous 16 events,, which was a humiliation at Anfield, where they lost 7-0 to Liverpool. Generally looking, this game overshadowed a period of excellent performances Erik Ten Hag’s unit had, and one trophy won, the above-mentioned EFL Cup. 

Following the loss to Liverpool, United eliminated Betis in the UEFA Europa League, played without goals against Southampton in the Premiership, and beat Fulham 3-1 in the FA Cup.
