Manchester United: Three wins from three and some awesome displays have United fans believing again, but that would all be erased with a poor performance here. If United is going to get back into the thick of things when it comes to Champions League qualification, they’ll need to get three points here. Considering Newcastle’s poor attack, United is expecting to take all the points in this one.
Newcastle: Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez told the media last week that if the club avoids relegation, it would be a miracle. Short of confidence, huh? The club has been awful, yes, but this is far from over. Newcastle currently sits in 15th place and is three points clear, but this team is the second-lowest scoring team in the league and is going to have to get goals from somewhere. Saloman Rondon is going to have to build on his performance against Watford.
