Man United vs Newcastle − Match preview
The Magpies have steadily and quietly climbed up the table over the past few weeks, and they sit right behind Man United ahead of today’s round of fixtures.
Toon firecracker Allan Saint-Maximin is unfortunately sidelined through injury, but the Newcastle faithful will be praying that Miguel Almiron will be a different beast now that he’s finally broken his goal-scoring (and assist-making) duck.
Steve Bruce’s side recorded a memorable win in the reverse fixture back in October, thanks to a wonderful second-half drive from boyhood Newcastle fan Matty Longstaff on his Premier League debut.
Meanwhile, Paul Pogba may make his long-awaited return to the Man United starting line-up today, which should come as a huge boost for Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side. Even Graeme Souness couldn’t deny that he’s a massive step up over Fred.
The Frenchman came on as a substitute in their last game against Watford, but wasn’t able to help turn around the 2-0 deficit despite being the best player on the park. If Pogba and the players around him can finally click, Man United will surely prove too much for Newcastle to handle.
