Newcastle Unted v Manchester United
Looking ahead to the big game on Saturday evening in the Premier League, Manchester United off the back of quite the game in midweek in the Champions League 3 old draw at Galatasaray, Newcastle are also on the back of quite the game in midweek, getting a draw at Paris Saint Germain, both sides are struck by injurie and suspensions but it still should be a cracking game Saturday night at Saint James Park.
Paul Robinson: It always is when these two sides meet, isn't it? I mean, historically we had some great games in the Premier League. We had some great goals from these two sides in the Premier League and I'm looking forward to this one on Saturday night. I think as you quite rightly say, both are injury hit and suspensions. Eddie Howe’s got 11 first team players that he would potentially pick unavailable to him and Ten Hag, I think he's got eight as well. Two tough European trips midweek both will probably feel a little bit deflated. Obviously Manchester United will because of the way that they played and the result in Galatasaray is not the one that they wanted. In hindsight, Newcastle’s result in Paris was fantastic, but I think the way it came about it will feel like a defeat. I think it was an absolutely excellent performance from them. Probably the performance of this season, maybe more seasons. I just think they showed a lot of commitment, a lot of heart and a lot of fight for the manager and the way that they put Chelsea away last
week with the depleted squad will give Newcastle fans a lot of hope going into this game.
David Easson: Looking at the prices, about even money for Newcastle United, Manchester United 3/1. The draw similar at around 29/10. Newcastle so strong at home but United 4 away wins on the spin.
Newcastle five straight wins at home and United 4 four away. So it's a tough one to call. You wouldn't back against Newcastle at home this season, but United are the inform team aren't they in the Premier League at the moment. The way that they are picking up points, not necessarily the way that they're playing. They have crept through a few games, they've snuck points here and there. Even though they won 3-0 at Everton last time out, I'm not so sure it was a convincing 3-nil as the scoreline suggests.
There's not a lot of value in Newcastle. You have to be creative with your goal scorer bets and Anthony Gordon's the one at home so I think he's who you're looking at for Newcastle. I think both teams will score. I think we're in for another good game.
