A side who have the feel of a club already dealing with a crisis, Manchester United will be desperate to make a return to winning ways when they make the trip to St. James’ Park on Saturday night.

Putting in what was an abysmal display as they threw away the lead and slumped to a 6-1 hammering at the hands of Tottenham at Old Trafford, United have managed to collect just three points from their opening three Premier League appearances this season.

On the flip side, shocking many and continuing on what has been an eye-catching start to the 2020/2021 campaign, Newcastle landed a 3-1 win against Burnley prior to the international break and the mood in their camp should be at a real high.

However, while they might be smelling an upset, they do hold a worrying record against the former champions.

Hit with a 4-1 drumming when they last faced off against the Red Devils, Newcastle have lost three of their last four matchups against Saturday’s guests and you might be interested to know a similar away victory this weekend can be found priced at 8/13 with William Hill.

Wilson dazzles again

Putting in a sluggish display as they were hit with a 3-0 hammering at home against Brighton last month, it has been a very impressive turnaround for Newcastle and they make their return from the international break sat in the top-10.

Last seen picking up a deserved 3-1 win against a struggling Burnley at St. James’ Park, Steve Bruce’s men have lost just one of their opening seven matchups across all formats and have a quarter-final spot in this year’s EFL Cup on the horizon.

Suddenly with the mood in their camp at a real high, the former Sunderland boss will be hugely excited about Callum Wilson’s immediate impact following a £20million move from Bournemouth over the summer.

Putting in a Man of the Match display against Burnley earlier in the month, the England international found the net against West Ham on his debut and has now racked up four goals in as many top-flight appearances.

You might be interested to know, Wilson can be found priced at 2/1 with Paddy Power to extend on his tally when the former champions come to town this weekend.

A United nightmare

Taking a 1-0 lead against Spurs at Old Trafford prior to the international break, few would have expected what was a remarkable collapse by Manchester United.

Eventually watching Anthony Martial shown a controversial straight red card for his altercation with Erik Lamela, the former Premier League champions shipped six on home soil and find themselves in the midst of a real worrying patch.

With the pressure now firmly on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s shoulders, Saturday’s guests have collected just three points from their opening three top-flight contests and have a real reputation for what have been some glaring issues at the back.

Along with watching a troubled Harry Maguire given his marching orders in England’s 1-0 defeat against Denmark at Wembley, United have shipped 11 goals in their opening three appearances and mark their return to action holding the joint second-worst defensive record in the division.

You might be interested to know, Solskjaer’s side are priced at 12/5 with EnergyBet to once again ship over 1.5 goals at St. James’ Park.

Elsewhere, despite making a deadline day move, Edinson Cavani will miss Saturday’s game at Newcastle because he is isolating after arriving at the club.
