The Magpies have a chance to get even with Manchester United for last year’s loss in the Carabao Cup finals. It’s the round of 16, but still, a win, even at this stage, would make Newcastle’s fans happy, at least for a little while. United, on the other side, has problems in its game, and that’s nothing new. Ten Hag’s system isn’t giving results, and the chemistry on the field is ruined.
Manchester United vs. Newcastle Preview
We can’t forget Manchester’s poor performance against FC Copenhagen and the luck they had in the stoppage time when Onana saved the penalty. Once again, the Red Devils disappointed their fans.
It was the first meeting following Sir Bobby Charlton’s death, and the emotions were high, as well as the expectations. The players of the hosts failed to fulfill them, repeating the scenario from the previous events.
Though, we need to say that they managed to win three in a row at that moment. Those positive results were the only thing that kept Ten Hag on the bench, and we are sure that if he had lost any of those meetings (Brentford, Sheffield, and FC Copenhagen), United would be looking for a new manager as we speak.
Newcastle was on the rise, not losing eight games in a row before a shocking defeat at home against Borussia Dortmund. It was something that just a few expected among the Magpies’ fans, even though Borussia isn’t a weak team at all.
Their nervous midfield, combined with bad luck, led to a defeat that wasn’t planned. This now complicates the situation in their group, putting pressure on Eddie Howe’s boys.
We can’t say that the Magpies didn’t play well, they’ve created chances, and pressured the rivals, but the lack of composure and luck prevented them from posting a better result.

Manchester United vs. Newcastle Head to Head Games
Manchester and Newcastle played three games last year, two in the Premiership and one in the Carabao Cup, which was in the finals. The first meeting was at Old Trafford, and it was without goals; the second in the Carabao Cup, 2-0 for Manchester, and the final one in the Premiership in Newcastle, 2-0 for the hosts.
Manchester United vs. Newcastle Predictions
The game will be intense because there is too much at stake for both units. Ten Hag can extend his tenure with potential success in this competition, while Eddie Howe wants a trophy with the Magpies, and the easiest way to do it is through Carabao. That’s why we don’t expect to hear too many goals.
Our verdict: Under 2.5 goals
