Manchester United v Newcastle United Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 8pm, Wednesday 1st November 2023


2022 EFL Cup finalists Manchester United and Newcastle United will battle it out for a place in the quarter-finals of this season’s competition at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening.

Erik ten Hag’s men thumped Crystal Palace to the tune of 3-0 in the last round of the EFL Cup and their reward is a meeting with a Newcastle United side which edged past Manchester City to the tune of 1-0 in their last cup outing.

The Red Devils were utterly abysmal when losing 3-0 to Manchester City on Sunday, Erik ten Hag’s men conceding a brace to Erling Haaland who then turned provider for Phil Foden who tapped home City’s third. The fans were less than impressed by this dismal showing from their side and few will be hopeful of a better outcome when they lock horns with a Magpies outfit which achieved in the last round of this competition what the Red Devils couldn’t at the weekend.

Newcastle United have secured just a solitary win from their last four competitive outings, a 4-0 thumping of Crystal Palace being accompanied by 2-2 draws with Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United as well as a 1-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League. On their travels, Eddie Howe’s men have won just one of their last six but they haven’t lost at this stage of the EFL Cup since 2004/05.

Newcastle United’s winless run against Manchester United now stands at seven games but something really isn’t right with the Red Devils right now and while the Magpies’ poor away form may give the home side hope that they can bounce back from their weekend embarrassment, we believe that the opposite will be true and that the visitors will secure the spoils in 90 minutes here.


Back Newcastle to win at best odds of 5/2
