Where: St. James’ Park, Newcastle, EnglandWhen: Saturday, December 2, 9 pm CET
The Magpies are flying high following a win over Chelsea last weekend, and they have another top-class rival coming to St. James’ Park. Manchester United arrives in town, intending to keep the winning attitude and take another three points. The Red Devils were solid against Everton, blowing the Toffees into pieces, which boosted their morale.
Newcastle vs. Manchester United Preview
For one moment in the first half, Chelsea looked like the team that could compete with Newcastle. Though, as soon as the guests from London leveled the score, Newcastle shifted into a higher gear, leaving the rivals in the dust and producing one fantastic result, 4-1.
Over the past ten games at home across all the competitions, Newcastle has only two losses and eight victories. The majority of the triumphs (five) were posted along with a clean sheet.
In general, Eddie Howe’s boys gain more and more experience, which is necessary when you need to battle both on the international and domestic stage.
The Red Devils rolled over Everton at Goodison, 0-3, with Garnacho’s incredible opener. We must mention the youngster’s magical goal because it was the play of the round, in our opinion.
This was United’s second victory in a row and the third match in the past four without a goal allowed. Erik Ten Hag’s unit currently has three consecutive Premiership triumphs, significantly improving their position in the standings.
As you can guess, the stability of the back line is the key contributor to success. United struggled with chemistry in defense, and it’s no secret that the rise came when Maguire returned to the lineup.
