The last match of the festive 19th round of the English Premier League is on the program tonight from 21:00, and the Newcastle United players will host the Manchester United team at their stadium.

Newcastle United

Newcastle United is currently the penultimate team in the table with only 10 points scored from 18 games played. So far this season, they have achieved one victory, seven draws, and as many as 10 defeats, with 18 goals scored and 41 goals conceded. With an average of 2.28 goals conceded per game, they are the team with the weakest defensive performance in the league. They played nine games at their stadium, in which they recorded one victory, four draws, and four defeats, with 12 goals scored and 21 goals conceded. With an average of 2.33 goals conceded per match, they have the weakest defense in the competition, counting matches played at home. As for the current form, in the last five matches played, they managed to achieve one victory, one draw, and three defeats, with only three goals scored and as many as twelve goals conceded. At home, they played 1-1 against Norwich, and then defeated Burnley 1-0. They were defeated with a convincing 4-0 against Leicester, and then Liverpool was better with 3-1. In the last round, Manchester City won 4-0. Given their current form, they will have a very difficult fight in the continuation of the season to save their place in the Premier League.

Manchester United

Manchester United occupies the seventh position in the table, and after sixteen matches they have 27 points won. They achieved eight victories, three draws, and five defeats, with 26 goals scored and 24 conceded. So far, they have played a total of eight matches on the visiting fields, in which they recorded four wins, two draws, and two defeats, with 12 goals scored and 11 goals conceded. In the last five matches, United managed to achieve three victories, one draw, and one defeat, with seven goals scored and seven goals conceded. Solskjaer led the team for the last time in a match against Watford that United lost 4-1, while assistant coach Carrick was on the bench in the match against Chelsea, which ended 1-1. Carrick was also the first coach in United’s 3-2 win over Arsenal, and Rangnick made his coaching debut in a match against Crystal Palace, and in that match, United won 1-0. In the last round, United was more successful with a score of 1-0 away to Norwich. The ambitions of the club this season are to win a place in the Champions League, but United is currently as much as eight points behind fourth-placed Arsenal, and as they have three games played less, winning this match is imperative because they would a possible failure tonight further distanced him from the desired position in the table.

Newcastle United vs. Manchester United Prediction

Newcastle United will have big problems maintaining their first league status unless there are big changes later in the season. The epithet of the weakest defense in the league was confirmed in the last three matches played, in which they scored only one and conceded as many as eleven goals. Manchester United will play their first match in the league after a two-week break due to problems with Covid-19, and the Newcastle United team is the perfect opponent to start the winning streak. United have three games less and are eight points behind Arsenal, and the first step towards fourth place would be tonight’s victory against an objectively much weaker rival. Manchester United should take advantage of the fact that Newcastle has a lot of defensive problems, and we expect that Ronaldo and his teammates will be concentrated enough to shake the opponent’s net at least three times. In support of our idea that there will be a lot of goals in this match, there is a tradition of mutual duels between these teams, and in the last four matches, as many as 19 goals were scored.
