Newcastle Look to Extend Dominance Over Struggling Manchester United

Published

on

Manchester United are facing a critical match against Newcastle, with the former desperate for a win to keep their faint top-six hopes alive after a recent defeat to Arsenal. The Red Devils have been struggling of late, managing just one win in their last eight league games, a worrying trend that includes draws against Burnley and Brentford, as well as a 4-0 thrashing by Crystal Palace.

Newcastle, on the other hand, have been in fine form, winning four of their last six matches, including convincing victories over Burnley and Spurs. With their attacking prowess on display, Newcastle presents a formidable challenge for United, especially considering the injury woes that continue to plague the Red Devils’ defense.

United’s defensive frailties have been exposed in recent games, with the team conceding 15 goals in their last seven league fixtures. Having kept only three clean sheets in their previous 20 matches across all competitions, United will have their hands full trying to contain Newcastle’s potent attack, who have won their last three encounters against United without conceding a goal.

Bruno Fernandes is expected to make a return for United, which should provide a significant boost to their midfield. However, all eyes might be on Newcastle’s Brazilian midfielder, Guimaraes, who has been in fine form, scoring four goals in his last six away games in the Premier League. With nine of his 16 goals for Newcastle coming on the road, Guimaraes poses a real threat to United’s defense, particularly with the current injury crisis the Red Devils are facing.

Another key figure to watch out for in this clash is Anthony Gordon, the pacey and skillful forward for Newcastle. Gordon’s ability to draw fouls, averaging 1.9 fouls suffered per game this season, could cause problems for United’s defense. Diogo Dalot, the United full-back, may find it challenging to contain Gordon’s speed and trickery, especially considering his recent struggles with committing fouls in matches.
