Premier League: Newcastle vs Man United Prediction, Odds, and Picks (Apr 2)
- Newcastle in 1-2 victory over Nottingham Forest last time out.
- Man United drew 0-0 with Southampton in their last Premier League outing.
Just three points separate fifth-placed Newcastle and third-placed Man United in the league this season. Eddie Howe’s men can leapfrog their opponents in the table, on goal difference, with a win here.
Newcastle is on a two-game winning streak having put an end to their poor run of form. Man United has failed to win in their previous two matches and Erik Ten Haag’s men are in danger of slipping out of the top four if results go against them this weekend.

Alexander Isak scored in stoppage time of each half to secure a 1-2 victory for Newcastle over Nottingham Forest in their most recent Premier League match. The Swedish striker now has six goals in his last ten matches and his goalscoring form will be vital to Newcastle’s hopes of mounting an assault on the top four.
Man United’s 0-0 draw with Southampton was a fairly dismal affair, with the only highlight one which Casemiro will wish to forget. The Brazilian midfielder was dismissed after 34 minutes for a tackle on Carlos Alcaraz following a VAR check. It is the midfielder’s second red card in the space of a month and he will miss four matches as a result.
Newcastle’s form has improved over recent weeks and they will be looking for revenge after February’s league cup final defeat to Man United. Man United will be hoping to get their own form back on track after a stumble but the loss of Casemiro will make the task harder for them. There will be plenty of action in this one and a draw seems the most likely result.
