We simulated Manchester United vs Newcastle to get a Premier League score prediction

Manchester United will grace the pitch at Old Trafford for the last time this season later this evening, where three points are vital against Newcastle United.

After a disastrous 4-0 defeat by Crystal Palace last week, United went down 1-0 to title-chasing Arsenal with a lack of concentration from Casemiro helping the Gunners grab the only goal of the game to -keeps pace in the Premier League. title hunt. Defeat means Erik ten Hag’s side have won just one of their last nine games in all competitions and failure to beat Newcastle tonight could see United drop a spot in the top seven if results don’t go the other way .




The Magpies are the fourth highest scorers in the league this season and the Ten Hag will be hoping his side aren’t as leaky at the back as the roof at Old Trafford when they host Eddie Howe’s side tonight. Since beating Newcastle 2-0 in last season’s Carabao Cup final, United have lost their last three games against the Magpies in all competitions, conceding six and scoring zero in that time.

Bruno Fernandes could return for the Ten Hag’s side after missing the clash with Arsenal, hopefully adding some much-needed creativity to United’s attack. Willy Kambwala could also return to the starting XI after coming off the bench against Arsenal following a spell on the sidelines.

So could United continue their hunt for European football next season? Let’s take a look.
