Why You Should Back Newcastle

The Magpies are out for revenge, and the League Cup loss wasn’t exactly a fair fight. Newcastle were down to their third-choice goalkeeper, with Nick Pope on a red-card suspension and Martin Dubravka cup tied. Pope is back, and he shares the Premier League lead with 12 clean sheets and ranks third in save percentage (77.2). The goalkeeper is a big part of a Magpies back end that has conceded 19 goals in 26 matches. United have allowed 35 goals this season.

Newcastle also have gotten a huge boost since Alexander Isak returned from injury. He has six goals in just 10 league appearances this season, and Allan Saint-Maximin and Anthony Gordon also are dangerous attackers. Man United will be missing critical midfielder Casemiro, who is suspended, and that should leave more openings in the middle of the field. The Magpies are one of the league’s best teams at home, going 7-5-1 with a plus-12 goal differential (21-9).

Why you should back Manchester United

The Red Devils are 12-3-1 in their past 16 matches in all competitions. They have one trophy, which they took by cruising past Newcastle, and are in the running for two others. They have Europa League quarterfinal and FA Cup semifinal matches this month. The loss of Casemiro to a red-card suspension will hurt, but the United attack has the talent to unlock the stingy Newcastle back line. Marcus Rashford and Casemiro both found a way to get on the board in the League Cup meeting.

United have an excellent head-to-head mark against the Magpies, going 5-2-0 in the past seven meetings, including the EFL final. They have scored in 22 of their 26 league matches and have allowed more than one goal once in their past nine in all competitions. Rashford has 14 goals for the Red Devils and has a strong relationship with Bruno Fernandes, who has six assists and five goals of his own. Fernandes scored twice in a 3-1 FA Cup quarterfinal victory over Fulham on March 19.
