United to rack up the goals.
Beleagured Steve Kean must have thought Christmas had come again on Saturday when his side scored a third goal at Old Trafford to give the champions a bloody nose and take all three points.
A shame Blackburn couldn’t take a point against Stoke to maintain a revival and keep the boo boys quiet for a while.
An amazing result which must have had the bookies rubbing their hands with glee as the majority of accumulators evaporated in an instant.
There is no value in betting on a winner here. Manchester United have goals in them aplenty and Newcastle have the best in form striker in Demba Ba – A move on the cards to Liverpool anyone?
Considering Manchester United’s porous defence decimated by injuries and Newcastle Uniteds'’ attacking style of play there must be goals in this one so get on 4+ goals at Betfred at 2/1 and take advantage of their £50 free bet offer.
Manchester United have scored five goals in two away games already this season against Bolton and Fulham whilst Newcastle have failed to score in only two home games so this one looks set to be a cracker of a game.
The main decision for Sir Alex is his dodgy goalkeeper. Against Blackburn De Gea had a shocker and his form contrasts starkly with Anders Lindegaard who has looked more and more the real deal and surely deserves a chance at grabbing the green shirt and showing his ability.
Man United need to win to keep up the pace with City and Newcastle are still in with a shout of European football but lose tonight and they will be staring the Europa league in the face.
