Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Nervy hosts. This Manchester United side looks devoid of confidence, and Newcastle should be looking to take advantage of that early on. The visitors are 13/5 with bet365 to score first, while United are 9/1 to win from behind. A 2-1 home victory is 8/1.

3 It's a long shot, but…

If Newcastle are going to upset the odds and claim a victory at Old Trafford, it’s surely going to be built on a solid defensive performance. With that in mind, the visitors are priced at 18/1 with bet365 to win this game 1-0 in your football score predictions.

One to Watch: Paul Pogba

All eyes will be on Paul Pogba once again after he was hooked by Jose Mourinho with United trailing West Ham 2-0 last weekend. The midfielder is the epitome of inconsistency, but has the ability to dominate matches when he’s in the mood. 

Despite the criticisms and losing the vice-captaincy, Pogba still has four goals in eight games across all competitions so far this season. Three of those have come from the penalty spot, and the Frenchman could be worth a look in the football predictions at 6/1 with Paddy Power for the first goal on Saturday.

Manchester United vs Newcastle United Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Romelu Lukaku will be a threat for the first goal as Manchester United take on Newcastle this weekend

Two teams in desperate need of a victory come together in this Premier League preview, as Manchester United welcome Newcastle United to Old Trafford. The visitors are yet to win a game this season, while the home team are in the midst of a deepening crisis. 

United are the 1/2 favourites in your Premier League predictions, despite the pressure that’s building on Jose Mourinho. The Red Devils slumped to their third defeat of the season at West Ham last weekend, and the manager seems to be falling out with a different player every day. If certain rumours are to be believed, failure to win this game could lead to Mourinho getting the sack. 

Newcastle are 7/1 to claim their first victory of the new campaign as part of your football betting tips for the weekend. The Magpies have had a nightmare start, with this game their fifth against members of last season’s top six. They’ve also failed to beat Cardiff, Crystal Palace and Leicester though, with Saturday’s defeat against the Foxes meaning Newcastle have lost their first four home matches for the first time in their history. 

The draw is 7/2, and might be the best football prediction the away side can hope for here. Rafa Benitez would probably take a point, considering his team lost 4-1 at Old Trafford last term. The football may lack cohesion and fluidity in the final third, but United still have some potent weapons and rarely lose in front of their own fans, despite making their worst start to a Premier League season. 

Romelu Lukaku is 3/1 for the first goal on Saturday evening. The Belgian striker has three goals so far this season, and specialises in hitting the back of the net against teams in the bottom half of the table. For the visitors, Joselu will lead the line in the absence of Rondon, and the Spaniard is available at 21/2 to break the deadlock. 

Predicted Score: Manchester United 2 - 1 Newcastle United
