Manchester United vs Newcastle Prediction, Betting Tip & Match Preview

Manchester United - Newcastle Prediction and Analysis

The mythical Wembley Stadium is gearing up for Sunday's League Cup final.

Rolling out the red carpet for visiting Manchester United and ambitious Newcastle.

This match is emerging as an ideal opportunity for both teams to win a trophy.

The Red Devils coach won a large number of titles and achieved significant success with his previous club Ajax.

So he would be happy to continue that at Old Trafford as well.

So far, things are going very well for him.

Just a few days ago, Man Utd's players once again showed character and turned Barca at the "Theater of Dreams".

To ensure progress on their way to the Europa League title.

On the domestic stage, Manchester United's title chances are not to be neglected either.

Today I expect them to win in regular time.

Especially considering the Magpies' shaky form in recent weeks (0-2-1).

It is possible, however, that Newcastle can score a goal.

Moreover, 4 of the previous 6 head-to-head matches between these two rivals were won by Manchester with a goal/goal .

As in 3 of the cases, the result was the same - 4-1.

So stats lovers can predict this result in today's match as well with a modest bet.

Tottenham vs Chelsea Prediction, Betting Tip & Match Preview

Manchester United are hungry for trophies

The Red Devils have won the League Cup 5 times in their history.

As their last triumph dates back to the Jose Mourinho era.

The Manchester United team is usually the main suspect for the trophy in every tournament where they participate.

Ever since Sir Alex Ferguson retired a decade ago, Man Utd have won a trophy here and there.

But this cannot be a basis to soften their thirst for success.

Manchester United is fighting on 4 fronts

Erik ten Haag will be hoping to win a trophy in his first campaign in charge of the team.

And so lay the foundations for future triumphs.

In fact, the Red Devils have a shot at 4 titles this season.

As they are still close to Man City in the Premier League standings and have a guaranteed FA Cup place.

And just a few days ago they eliminated one of their biggest competitors for the Europa League trophy - Barcelona.

After a dramatic 2-1 win at Old Trafford, it came after a complete turnaround. 

Marcus Rashford is in top form

Marcus Rashford has been the inspiration behind Manchester United's booming form this campaign.

The ferocious goalscorer has almost single-handedly kept the club competitive on four fronts.

He has a staggering 16 goals in 16 games in all competitions since his return from the World Cup.

And he is enjoying his best season for Manchester United with 24 goals.

Newcastle haven't won a trophy in a long time

Newcastle were expected to reach this level of trophy-challenging form at some stage.

After their acquisition by the new owners from Saudi Arabia in 2021.

But few expected to break through to the final so early.

Eddie Howe, however, has a solid squad.

Who are competing both to reach the Champions League and to win a first major trophy since 1969.

In fact, the Magpies are in their first domestic cup final this century.

Newcastle have been on a roll lately

Howe's side have lost a bit of steam of late, going winless in their last 4 Premier League games.

As 3 of them ended in a draw.

The key Bruno Guimirache is back

Newcastle welcomed the return of Bruno Guimaraes from suspension following his red card in the semi-final.

Who subsequently missed three Premier League games.

The Brazilian midfielder has been the catalyst in Newcastle's stellar form this campaign.

And it will be a huge boost to their trophy-lifting aspirations.

Newcastle's two main goalkeepers are out

Meanwhile, Loris Karius looks set to start between the posts in his first official match since February 2021.

After Nick Pope is penalized. And his deputy Martin Dubravka is not allowed to play in the tournament.
