Decent Start

Newcastle United’s start to the season hasn’t been as bad as many predicted, a 3-0 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion the low point in what has otherwise been an acceptable start to the campaign. The Magpies opened their account with a 2-0 win at West Ham United and managed to hold Tottenham Hotspur to a 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane along the way. They head into this weekend’s clash with Manchester United on the back of a 3-1 home win over Burnley and as such, confidence will be pretty high ahead of the visit of Manchester United.

 

Abysmal

The visiting Red Devils have – to be fair – been thoroughly abysmal this season and not for nothing has Ole Gunnar Solskjaer been heavily backed to be the next managerial casualty in the Premier League. The Old Trafford outfit have collected just three points from their three league games thus far – these coming from an unconvincing 3-2 win over Brighton & Hove Albion – and they head into this match on the back of a disastrous 6-1 defeat at home to Tottenham Hotspur, a result which increased the calls on Solskjaer to be sacked.

 

Lacking

While it may have generally been difficult to make a strong case for Newcastle United over the past few seasons, it’s even harder to make a case for Man United this term. The Red Devils have been lacking in all areas and it’s clear that the Solskjaer experiment has to come to an end. The visitors will be there for the taking at St James’ Park this weekend and in all honesty we don’t envisage them putting up too much of a fight, a consolation goal perhaps the best they can hope for.
