Manchester United v Newcastle United Preview, Premier League, Saturday 7th December 2013

Things only seem to be getting worse for Manchester United manager David Moyes after their midweek defeat at home against Everton 1-0 and with much unrest from the fans, failure to qualify for the Champions League this season could see Mr Moyes handed his P45, so it will be of vital importance for Manchester United to win this game saturday afternoon.

Newcastle United were also defeated midweek, going down 3-0 away against Swansea City which put an end to four successive wins on the bounce for Alan Pardew’s side and you can be certain that all the players will be looking to put that result right in this game on saturday afternoon against a Manchester United side that have not looked anything close to their best yet this season.

Manchester United Team News:

Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher are still recovering from respective injury problems and remain unavailable for this game. Wayne Rooney is also unavailable having picked up a suspension in the midweek defeat against Everton, so Robin Van Persie looks likely to return back to the starting line up to lead the charge up front.

4-2-3-1 is the likely formation for the hosts which will see Robin Van Persie leading the attack up front with support in behind coming from the likes of Welbeck, Kagawa and either Valencia or Ashley Young.

Striker Wayne Rooney is the clubs leading top goalscorer this season with 8.

Newcastle United Team News:

Ryan Taylor is the only player missing for the visitors as he continues to receive treatment for a knee injury. Cisse and Ben Arfa will both undertake a late fitness test to see if they can be involved with both players now having returned back to the squad and completed midweek training.

4-4-2 looks the likely formation that manager Alan Pardew will use for this game which will see Ameobi and Remy leading the attack up front with support from midfield being provided by Ben Arthur, Sissoko, Cabaye and Tiote.

Loic Remy is the clubs current top goalscorer this season with 8.

Manchester United v Newcastle United Match Betting Odds Market

Manchester United are the clear odds on favourites to win this game with the online bookmakers only offering up a best price of 1/2 with Paddy Power (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) for David Moyes’ side to turn their season around on saturday afternoon.

The Draw has not happened in the last five meetings between the two sides, but both games back in 2011 finished all square and with Newcastle United having the much better recent form at the moment the draw could be a sensible cover play here at odds of 18/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

Newcastle United had been in excellent form up until their midweek defeat away against Swansea City and the whole squad will be looking to bounce back to winning ways in this match up against the current defending Champions, so although they are not at all fancied to win this game, I can certainly see some shrewd punters getting on the away win at generous odds of 13/2 with Coral (£50 Free Bets for New Customers).

Manchester United v Newcastle United Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

A game that Manchester United must win if they are to have any chance of qualification the next season’s Champions League, but more important one that manager David Moyes can’t afford to lose if he is to keep his job as another defeat would surely see him called into the board of directors to face some tough and difficult questions about what is going wrong this season.

Newcastle United were completely outplayed in their midweek defeat away against Swansea City which would of come as a massive shock to Alan Pardew and his players, but they are presented with a great opportunity to bounce back to winning ways by winning this game and with Ben Arthur and Cisse both looking likely to be involved at some point they do have the squad available to win this game in my opinion.

The goal stats suggest this one to see plenty of goals and for me this looks the best place to concentrate on with betting markets like Both Teams to Score YES, Over 2.5 Goals and Anytime Goalscorers.
