Man Utd v Newcastle Odds

United have made a dreadful start to the Premier League season, winning just three of their opening seven fixtures, and Mourinho is now the favourite to be the next Premier League manager sacked.

Mourinho's men did thrash Newcastle 4-1 at the 'Theatre of Dreams' last November but it is difficult to see a repeat scoreline, even if the home side are a skinny 1/2 for the win.

The Red Devils look short of ideas in the attacking third and under 2.5 goals is a stand-out bet for the game - 19/20 with Betfair.

Benitez tends to set his Newcastle United side up defensively for these clashes with members of the 'big six' and they did beat United 1-0 when they met at St James' Park in February.

However, the Magpies - who are 7/1 to win on Saturday - have a quite dreadful away record as they have won just four away games since the start of last season - won four, drawn six, lost twelve - and they have failed to score in five of their past eight on the road.

Newcastle find themselves in the relegation zone at this early stage of this campaign, but they have played four of the traditional 'big six' in that time, losing by one goal in each of those games. Man United to win by a one goal margin is 23/10 with Paddy Power.

It is likely to be a low scoring encounter, although Romelu Lukaku might be worth a look to get on the scoresheet as he has notched six goals and four assists in nine appearances against Newcastle during his career. Lukaku is even-money to score at anytime.
