Last Updated: 10/05/2019 at 2:51 PM ET

On Sunday, the Manchester United Red Devils visit the Newcastle United Magpies in an English Premier League fixture. Manchester United sits in 10th place in the table at 2-3-2 on 9 points. Man United is coming off a 0-0 draw in the Europa League with AZ Alkmaar. The Red Devils are winless on the road dating back to March 6 and versus AZ midweek did not have shot on target the entire match. Eric Bailly and Tim Fosu-Mensah are long term injury losses, with Paul Pogba, Phil Jones and Anthony Martial are a week or two away from action. 

Newcastle sits 19th in the table at 1-2-4 on 5 points and one point away from leaving the relegation zone. The Magpies played poorly last weekend in a 5-0 loss to Leicester City. Newcastle must take all three points if they hope manager Steve Bruce remains for the remainder of at least October. Newcastle will play without Isaac Hayden after the red card he received last week. Dwight Gayle and Florian Lejuene are long-term injury losses, while Jonjo Shelvey and Matt Ritchie will be out two weeks more. Jetro Willems could return to his left wing-back spot. 

Marcus Rashford and Daniel Jones each have 3 goals to lead Manchester United. Paul Pogba and Rashford each have 2 assists to lead the club. Spanish goalkeeper David de Gea is 2-3-2 with 90-minute goals against of 1.00 and .750 save percentage. 

Newcastle has scored just 4 goals thus far with Fabian Schar, Joelinton, Jonjo Shelvey and Jetro Willems each scoring one. Christian Atsu has 2 assists to lead Newcastle, while Sean Longstaff and Isaac Hayden each have 1 assist. Martin Dubravka is 2-4-2 in goal, with 90-minute goals against of 1.86 and .594 save percentage. 

Both clubs are playing quite poorly at this early stage of the season. Manchester is battling through an injury crisis with top players such as Paul Pogba, Phil Jones and others missing out. The Red Devils had a lackluster draw midweek in the Netherlands against AZ Alkmaar, but Newcastle’s last outing was even worse falling to Leicester City 5-0. Take the visitors in this one. Final Score Prediction, Manchester United wins 2-1.
