When Newcastle and Manchester United square off in the Premier League on December 2 at St James’ Park, they’ll need to make an effort to forget their challenging international travels.
Newcastle United enters this match fresh off a significant loss to PSG. They were ahead from the 24th minute until Kylian Mbappe’s disputable penalty kick equalized the score in stoppage time. Eddie Howe expressed his satisfaction with his team’s performance in that match and plans to build on it when they play the Red Devils this weekend. But for Howe’s deflated team, a trip back to the comforts of home is precisely what they need. In their most recent Premier League match, they defeated a 10-man Chelsea 4-1, dropping them to seventh position, only one point below Man United. They have just 3 times allowed a goal in their last 8 home games, winning 7 of them and they have won six of their last nine Premier League games while only losing once, indicating that confidence has been restored.
When Manchester United traveled to Istanbul in midweek to play Galatasaray in the Champions League, they found themselves in a must-win scenario. Despite having a two-goal lead twice during the game, the Red Devils only managed 1 point before heading home. However, Erik ten Hag’s squad have been playing well in the league as seen by their 3 wins and 3 clean sheets in their previous 3 games. The hosts could now win 3 straight against the Red Devils for the very first time in 101 years after Man United crushed Newcastle’s hopes of winning the EFL Cup. Newcastle defeated Man United 2-0 at St James’ Park before a 3-0 humiliation against the Red Devils in the EFL Cup at Old Trafford. For this forthcoming match, Manchester sits one spot and one point ahead of their hosts.
