Manchester United vs Newcastle Match Details:

This game will be played at Old Trafford – Kick Off time: 4:15pm (ET)

Newcastle United will look to avenge the Carabao Cup final defeat when they face Man Utd at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

Manchester United vs Newcastle 11/01/2023 Preview:

Erik Ten Hag’s side are fresh off of derby day disappointment and running the risk of being cut adrift from the Champions League race after just 10 matches.

Newcastle have also fallen further behind after a courageous 2-2 draw away to Wolves last weekend. The Magpies are still adapting to competitive on all fronts.

Wednesday will offer the opportunity both sides the opportunity to shift their focus and rotate their squads, but neither are in the best of positions to do so.

Casemiro’s return could be helpful, but United’s mismatch of a midfield will still look predictable and one-dimensional without the presence of a top quality number eight.

They continue to be overrun in games, particularly early on, and have now been outscored 6-0 in the opening 25 minutes of matches at Old Trafford.

Forest, Brighton, Palace, Brentford and City have led 2-0, 3-0, 1-0, 1-0 and 3-0 respectively.

The visitors are likely to target a fast start so it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them open the scoring in the first half, which could be a profitable angle.

Newcastle had a difficult schedule early in the season, but they have since scored five goals in the first half of their previous three away games.

It is also worth noting that Howe’s team has scored at least twice in each of their last four games, while the Reds has conceded at least once in eight of their last nine.

Callum Wilson is sure to start again given the injury situation. He’s found the net seven times in nine matches and looks a sensible choice in the anytime scorer market.

Not only are the visitors in better form, unbeaten in eight games having scored 21 times, but they’ll also be targeting revenge for the 2023 Carabao Cup final defeat.
