Charlie Nicholas has predicted that Newcastle United will beat Manchester United 2-1 on Sunday to get the Toon’s season going and move them out of the relegation zone.
Newcastle have not won at home yet this season and face a Red Devils side who have not won in ten away games.
This is the perfect opportunity to play Manchester United Newcastle must go into the game with confidence and be aggressive and put Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side under pressure from the start.
The Red Devils will also be without Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard – which is another boost to Steve Bruce’s side.
The Newcastle players have spoken all week about a reaction, so Sunday will show if these words were empty or not. Newcastle have to see this like the game they played against Manchester United in February 2018.
Back then, Rafael Benitez’s side were embroiled in a relegation fight, and they produced a fantastic 1-0 win over Jose Mourinho’s men to kickstart their drive to Premier League safety.
We are only seven games into the season, but Newcastle look in trouble already, and they really need a win on Sunday to ease growing tension on Tyneside.
Nicholas believes that Newcastle can do it, but do the players?
All will be revealed on Sunday.
