Newcastle United travel to Manchester United searching for their first win of the season. Trips to Old Trafford have not always been kind to the Magpies down the years but if ever there was a time to be facing the Red Devils it’s probably now. José Mourinho goes into the game under immense pressure with some pundits predicting he is on the brink of the sack. But Newcastle have their own problems and are desperate to get off the mark for the first time since May. Lee Ryder’s prediction Victory for Newcastle in this one is not as ridiculous as suggestion it once was at Old Trafford. The Magpies are still 6/1 to get the three points but an early goal for Rafa Benitez’s side could throw the stadium into a state of disarray. That said Benitez’s side are struggling for goals and confidence. The stalemate is 17/5 and it could attract a few punters this weekend, but a point would also be gratefully received by all connected to the black and whites. Referee Anthony … [Read more...] about Lee Ryder’s prediction: Manchester United vs Newcastle United

Newcastle take on Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday still going in search of their first win of the season. Admittedly, the Magpies have faced four of last season’s top six teams in their opening seven games and found themselves hard done by in defeats to Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal. A missed penalty in stoppage time robbed Newcastle of a certain win at Cardiff as well but despite their hard luck they currently find themselves in the Premier League relegation zone. So where have the recent results left United in the eyes of the bookmakers, as regards to relegation? Here’s the latest betting on Newcastle’s prospects; including their chances against the Gunners and their prospects of matching last season’s top-half finish - or aiming even higher.

Newcastle United are in dire need of three points after going six matches without a win. The Magpies haven’t won at home against the Foxes since 2014 when Gabriel Obertan grabbed the winner. Back then Mike Ashley entered the dressing room to congratulate the players but were the tycoon to turn up on Saturday it would be his first home game since May 2017. But regardless of the politics going on behind the scenes, Newcastle are in a fight for survival already this season with Rafa Benitez admitting they must find “three worse teams” before they can start assessing any bigger ambitions. Lee Ryder verdict Much has been made of Rafa Benitez’s tactics but he’s working with the players he’s got. Salomon Rondon is a borrowed body from West Brom but with the striker ruled out through injury it means he has to rely on a player he brought in to make ends meet last term. That man is Joselu and with no other recognised central striker available he will look to … [Read more...] about Newcastle United vs Leicester City: Rafa Benitez’s tactics divide fans but does he have much choice?
Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley has made his first appearance at a game since May 2017 at the Magpies game against Crystal Palace . The Sports Direct magnate was in the stands for the clash at Selhurst Park with the Magpies searching for their win of the campaign in the Premier League. Ashley’s last outing to watch United was the 3-0 win over Barnsley in the Sky Bet Championship season on a day he was pictured with Rafa Benitez and managing director Lee Charnley with the second flight trophy. Quite what the intention of Ashley turning up for the clash in South London is open for debate, but the Buckinghamshire tycoon has made a point in the past of showing his face at games during a bad run for the team. He was at the game alongside Keith Bishop and Lee Charnley, as our exclusive picture from Selhurst Park confirms. That was the case amidst bad runs of results for both Alan Pardew and John Carver, however, Ashley is also good friends with Palace chief Steve Parish meaning it … [Read more...] about Picture exclusive: Mike Ashley attends his first Newcastle United game since May 2017
