At least five Manchester United players could say goodbye during the Newcastle game

Can United end their Newcastle League run?

The last time Manchester United beat Newcastle in the Premier League was the second coming of Cristiano Ronaldo. It was also the last time Steve Bruce managed Newcastle against his old club.




Under Eddie Howe, Newcastle are unbeaten in four league games against United, winning two and drawing two. They also humiliated United in the fourth round of the League Cup at Old Trafford in November.

United won the biggest game of last year’s League Cup final, but the clubs have gone in the opposite direction in recent weeks. Newcastle were in tenth place and six points behind United when the season resumed after the internationals in March. Tonight, Newcastle could ensure they finish above United for the first time since 1977.

Amrabat to keep the momentum going?

The match was all but over when Sofyan Amrabat replaced Casemiro at half-time against Newcastle in the League Cup six months ago. The weekend defeat to Arsenal marked Amrabat’s first league start since December 17 and was also his best performance for United.
