Manchester United host Newcastle in what should be a thrilling Premier League clash at Old Trafford this evening. Fresh off the back of a 1-0 loss to Arsenal Erik ten Hag’s player need to improve and show they are worthy of a spot in the squad ahead of an expected exodus in the summer.


United are still hoping to end their season by securing a place in European competition next year. They are battling with Chelsea and Newcastle for the final two spots and have to beat the Magpies this evening or else they will fail. The Red Devils are eighth in the table three points behind both of their rivals and have a shocking -4 goal difference.


Newcastle, meanwhile, can ensure they at least have a place in the Europa Conference League next season if they win at Old Trafford. They have a vastly superior goal difference to both Chelsea and United meaning three points would put them out of reach heading into the final match of the season.

31’ GOAL! Man Utd 1-0 Newcastle (Mainoo, 31’)

31 mins: Manchesterr United get the breakthrough!


This is poor from Newcastle. Amad Diallo receives the ball on the right wing and cuts along the front edge of the box before threading a pass through to Kobbie Mainoo.


He brings the ball under control and has too much time and space, Kieran Trippier is at fault due to not getting as high as his fellow defenders for the offside trap, but Mainoo makes no mistakes.


He slots the ball wide of Martin Dubravka and United take the lead!

Fernandes dinks a chip over the Newcastle defence where Garnacho has continued his run. He brings the ball under control, opens up his body then shoots.


Martin Dubravka close the gap at the near post, sticks out a leg and keeps it out! Great goalkeeping.
