Preview: Manchester United vs Newcastle United

The English Premier League’s 34th round rescheduled matchup between Manchester United and Newcastle will take place at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

Manchester United

The “Red Devils” have shown notably poor performance throughout the season. As a result, there has been an unjust exit from the Champions League and poor results in the English Premier League. After racking up 54 points, Erik ten Hag’s squad is currently positioned eighth in the EPL rankings. Newcastle, who are competing for European qualification, are three points ahead of them. But in the midst of the competition, Manchester United doesn’t seem to be a strong candidate to play in the Conference League. Manchester United hosted Arsenal in the previous round and lost 0-1 on the road. With two draws and two losses in the previous five games, Manchester United has only managed one victory overall.

Newcastle United

Last season, the “Magpies” took everyone by surprise by earning a spot in the Champions League. They did not, however, have any effect in the top European competition. In addition, Newcastle’s season started poorly as a result of their Champions League participation, which made it less likely that they would duplicate the previous year’s success. Newcastle didn’t settle into a consistent playing style and begin to accumulate points until they were eliminated from European competitions. As of right now, the “Magpies” are in sixth place, which means they will play in the Conference League. Chelsea and Manchester United, however, are both within striking distance; Newcastle is now three points behind Manchester United. Newcastle’s 1-1 draw with Brighton in the previous round allowed the “Seagulls” to close the gap.
