Newcastle United have managed to win only one of their last six Premier league games, and will come into this match on the back of two consecutive losses.
The last time these two teams met at Old Trafford in the Premier League, was during the 2015-16 Premier League season, and the fixture ended in a goalless draw. Another draw in today’s game like it happened the last time is priced at (5.18) on SportyBet.

Lukaku has been a safe bet to score throughout the season, but he has failed to score in last four league games for United. Despite his lack of goals, Lukaku is the favourite to score on Saturday at (1.70) odds. For the visitors, Dwight Gayle is the favourite to score at (5.20) odds on SportyBet.
Nine of the ten goals Benitez’s team has conceded this term have come after the half-time interval. That makes (2.19) for the Red Devils to score more goals in the second period than the first. For the record, United have scored seven times in the first half of Premier League games, and netted 16 goals after the break!
Two of Manchester United’s home games have been goalless at the break, and away from home Newcastle have managed to hold their opponents to a goalless draw in four out of five games. Backing a draw at half-time looks like a fantastic value. You can back that outcome on SportyBet at (2.49).
Newcastle have failed to score in three of their five away games, and now come up against the best defence in the league. It doesn’t look good for the visitors, and backing a Manchester United Win to Nil (1.78) could be a very good idea here.
What likely score do you expect from this match? A correct score of 2-0 (5.50) is the most likely result at the end of this encounter on SportyBet, while the next most likely result is 1-0, which can be backed at (6.08).
