Soccer News – Newcastle United- Manchester United
Manchester United will be looking for a positive result when they pay a visit to Newcastle United at the St. James’ Park on Saturday. This is another fixture from the English Premier League. Let’s take a look at it.
One win and two losses – this is the mediocre way Manchester United started the 2020/21 season in the Premier League. At this moment the Red Devils are 16th in the standings with just 3 points won and this is certainly not okay.
Before the break it was a pure fiasco for Manchester United when they faced Tottenham Hotspur at the Old Trafford. The match ended with a 1-6 defeat for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team and it really shocked the club’s fans.
Because of these performances there are rumours that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be sacked really soon. According to some information in the press Manchester United are already talking to Tottenham’s former manager Mauricio Pochettino. Solskjaer is perfectly aware that another negative result could cost him the job.
Against Newcastle Manchester United can’t use the French striker Anthony Martial. He recieved a red card against Spurs, so he’s suspended for the next game.
Newcastle United approach the 5th round from 9th place in the Premier League standings. Steve Bruce can be happy with his team’s performance in the first few rounds of the league. As long as the Magpies are on a safe distance from the relegation zone they are going to be happy with that.
For Manchester United it’s going to be a tough visit to Newcastle United at the St. James’ Park. The Red Devils are having a crisis with their results in the last month and it’s always difficult to face the Magpies at their own ground. Manchester United’s manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is next to the wall and these could be his last days at the job. Let’s see how he’s going to react to this.
