Manchester United have been dealt a fairly soft draw to start the season and need as many wins as they can muster after sharing the points with too many ordinary teams last year. 

They pumped Leeds United 5-1 in Week 1, before drawing 1-all at Southampton and accounting for Wolves 1-0.

Bruno Fernandes bagged a hat-trick against Leeds, while Mason Greenwood has scored in all three games so far. This is United’s first game signing Crisitiano Ronaldo and his likely Old Trafford return is set to dominate this clash.

It’s been a less-than-ideal start for Newcastle, who have just one point after losses to West Ham (4-2) and Villa (2-0), and a draw at home to Southampton (2-2). The Magpies looked to have snatched three points against the Saints before they conceded in the 96th minute.

Man United have won their last three against Newcastle by margins of two goals or more. Last season the Red Devils won 4-1 at St James’ Park and 3-1 at Old Trafford, with Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford scoring in both.

Verdict

If Man U are switched on, they will win this in a canter.
