Team News Newcastle: Newcastle currently sit in seventeenth in the table, tied with Stoke on points, but ahead on goal differential, which is keeping them out of the relegation zone. If Newcastle lose and Huddersfield win against Bournemouth, they will move into the relegation zone by two points. The Magpies have struggled all season long and have underwhelmed since the beginning of the season. They are led in scoring by Joselu who has 4 goals and Dwight Gayle & Jamaal Lascelles who have 3 goals a piece. Matt Ritchie has 5 assists and Ayoze Perez and Christian Atsu have 2 a piece. Newcastle have conceded 36 goals on the season, and are winless in their last five, with their results looking like this: DLLDD.


Team News Utd.: The Red Devils are sitting in second place, trailing City by 13 if they are to win. It seems as if nobody will be able to catch the Citizens this year and that the real battle is for Champions League spots. Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham are all gunning for Utd. and are within easy striking distance. Utd. are far superior to Newcastle and even in St. James’ Park should be able to handle them no problem. Lukaku has 12 goals, Martial has 9, and Lingard has 7. Pogba has 9 assists, Lukaku has 5 and Rashford has 5 assists along with 6 goals. This is a match up that the Red Devils should be able to handle with relative ease. Their attacking line overpowers the back line of the Magpies and should give them trouble from start to finish.


Manchester United need to win games they should win in order to keep their Champions League positioning. They will win this game and keep their second place positioning.


Pick: Manchester United 8/13
