Man United vs Newcastle

Calendar 15th May
Football icon kick off 20:00
Football icon Diogo Dalot to commit 1+ fouls
Arrow down

Dalot averages 1.23 fouls per 90 and is currently playing in a makeshift defence which is coming under a lot of pressure.

He has a very difficult matchup against Anthony Gordon who is fouled 2.12 times per game.

Football icon Casemiro to commit 1+ fouls
Arrow down

The former Real Madrid player averages 1.25 fouls per 90 minutes and is now being played out of position at centre back.

He has struggled in recent matches and is under pressure. It is very difficult to see him play a clean match against such a talented Newcastle attack.

Football icon Bruno Guimaraes to commit 1+ fouls
Arrow down

With Joelinton out injured, Bruno Guimaraes is by far the biggest offender in this Newcastle team in terms of fouls and cards.

He has become their midfield enforcer and averages 1.40 fouls per 90. Facing the likes of Bruno Fernandes he will be kept busy.

Football icon Over 10.5 corners
Arrow down

Man United matches average over 13 corners which is a really high rate.

Newcastle fixtures average over 10 corners so there should be plenty of flag kicks here. The prospect of a lot of total shots, goalkeepers saves and overlapping full backs would suggest the corner count will be high.

Old Trafford hosts a battle between two teams with European aspirations when Newcastle come to town.

Man United’s whole season will probably rest on the upcoming FA Cup final against Man City but anyone who finishes sixth or higher is guaranteed to qualify for at least the Conference League.

Newcastle have been in better form and should be confident travelling to the Theatre of Dreams – or streams as it was at the weekend when a thunderstorm impacted proceedings. Which team will be washed away in this encounter?

Man United vs Newcastle Predicted Lineups

Bruno Fernandes set to return

There is a hope that captain Bruno Fernandes will be fit enough to start for Man United but he is still a doubt. The same can be said about Marcus Rashford who might be saved for the FA Cup final. United will definitely be without the likes of Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Raphael Varane and Mason Mount. They have big defensive problems with Lisandro Martinez unlikely to be risked either. Casemiro is probably going to have to play at centre back again, possibly alongside Willy Kambwala or Jonny Evans.

Newcastle hoping strike partnership are fit

Manager Eddie Howe has several key decisions to make. Alexander Isak missed training on Monday due to illness although he should be fit enough to start. Callum Wilson has been a recent doubt but this could be a good chance for him to get in the side. First choice keeper Nick Pope is back in contention and centre back Fabian Schar has recently returned to light training.

Man United vs Newcastle Team Stats

Shooting practice against the United defence

The big statistic which always stands out with Man United is the sheer number of shots they concede per game at an average of 17.28. Their xGA of 1.81 per game is significantly high and their defence has actually overachieved compared to the chances conceded. Corner and card numbers are also quite high in their fixtures, especially corners which are totalling a massive 13.14 overall.

Defensive issues have held back the Toon

Newcastle have been scoring plenty of goals this season at an average rate of 2.19 per game. Their underlying offensive metrics are strong with xG and shots on target. The problem for the Magpies has been a lack of defensive security. They have conceded 1.58 goals per game which no doubt is affected by the number of shots (13.84) they concede in each game. Corner numbers average over 10 per match for Newcastle which is slightly on the high side.

Man United vs Newcastle Shots and Shots on Target Stats

Garnacho is a reliable shooting option

Starting striker Rasmus Hojlund averages a measly 1.53 shots per 90 which is a shockingly low tally for someone in his position at Man United. Bruno Fernandes is the most reliable in terms of accuracy and is 1.40 to have one or more shots on target. Alejandro Garnacho is perhaps the most selfish attacker in their ranks and is best watched in the shots market. He is 1.40 to have three or more attempts which is below his average of 3.54 shots per 90. 

14 05 2024 MANCHESTER UNITED betbuilder stats pack SHOOTING

Newcastle shooting boots will be on

With Man United conceding over 17 shots per game on average the Newcastle attackers should be licking their lips. Both strikers Callum Wilson and Alexander Isak are worth watching in this market should they start. Isak especially could be value at 1.40 to have three or more attempts. He is so accurate that taking the Sweden international in the shots on target market could be more beneficial. Isak has a 50% accuracy ratio and is 1.25 to test the Man United keeper at least once.

Man United vs Newcastle Goals and Assists Stats

Fernandes offers biggest United threat

Rasmus Hojlund has been in poor form recently and can’t really be trusted to hit the back of the net. If Bruno Fernandes is in the starting lineup he will stand out as the best Man United player to back in this type of market. He is priced at 2.10 to score or assist which would be the best and safest category. The Portuguese is on some free kicks, penalty duty and is the top United goalscorer this season. 

14 05 2024 MANCHESTER UNITED betbuilder stats pack GOALSCORING

Isak and Gordon lead the way

Alexander Isak is one of the best finishers in the Premier League and has scored 20 goals this season. He is priced at 2.20 to score anytime at Old Trafford which might look like a decent addition to any Man United vs Newcastle bet builder. Anthony Gordon has been a significant threat all season but his position on the field means it might be wisest to back him to score or assist at 2.0.

Man United Cards and Fouls Stats

Experienced duo could be card candidates

The hosts are mid table for cards obtained this season in the Premier League (76) and have only picked up one red card. The Red Devils also rank inside the bottom half for fouls committed at 10.40 per game. Fernandes is always a card candidate while an under pressure Casemiro could also be considered. They can be backed at 3.50 and 3.0 respectively to go into the book. 

14 05 2024 MANCHESTER UNITED betbuilder stats pack CARDS FOR

Newcastle are the third-most fouled team in the Premier League, managing to draw 12.30 fouls per game from their opponents. They draw 2.58 cards on average. Bruno Guimaraes stands out in midfield where he is a total foul magnet, drawing close to three fouls per 90 minutes. The Brazilian is very clever at winning cheap free kicks. Anthony Gordon has been a menace all season cutting inside from the left wing. Diogo Dalot is 1.40 to commit a foul which looks a big price considering his matchup.

Newcastle Cards and Fouls Stats

Guimaraes in the heart of the action

The Magpies have been quite a disciplined team this season only picking up 70 yellows and 1 red card in the Premier League. Only five teams have received fewer yellow cards. They rank inside the bottom five for fouls committed as well (10.20). This is quite a well disciplined team but Bruno Guimaraes is always in the heart of the action. He tops the card count for the visitors and averages 1.40 fouls per 90 minutes. He can be backed at odds of 1.40 to commit a single foul or more. 

14 05 2024 NEWCASTLE UNITED betbuilder stats pack CARDS FOR

Man United are the second-least fouled team in the Premier League (averaging nine per game). Only Sheffield United have drawn less fouls from their opponents. Quite why Man United have not been good at drawing fouls this season is a tough question to answer. Alejandro Garnacho is perhaps the most likely to cause problems and he’s fouled twice per 90 on average. He could pop up on either wing so perhaps Dan Burn is a big price at 1.73 to commit at least one foul.
