Can Man Utd improve their fortunes?
<div><h2>Newcastle vs Man Utd</h2><p><a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Sunday, October 6, at St James’s Park</strong></a></p><p>Man Utd have made their worst start to a Premier League season after taking just nine points from their opening seven games. They have really struggled in front of goal and pressure is piling on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Red Devils desperately need a win, and Newcastle could prove to be obliging opponents. They lost 5-0 to Leicester at the weekend, a result that left the Magpies marooned in 19<sup>th</sup> place in the Premier League table. Newcastle look poor in every department this season and they could well go down, so Man Utd should fancy their chances of winning this game.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Newcastle midfielder Isaac Hayden was sent off against Leicester and that opened the floodgates as they went on to lose 5-0. Jonjo Shelvey is also out injured, and Steve Bruce may be forced to turn to Ki Sung-yueng to fill in alongside Sean Longstaff in midfield. The Magpies play five at the back, and they will bid to frustrate Man Utd for large chunks of this game, but striker Joelinton always appears too isolated up front and he is not getting much support from Manuel Almiron and Christian Atsu.</p><p>Man Utd welcomed Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba back to the starting 11 as they drew 1-1 with Arsenal on Monday night. Solskjaer will shuffle his pack for the Europa League game in midweek, and we can expect to see big players like Harry Maguire, Daniel James, Jesse Lingard, Rashford and Pogba starting against Newcastle. They miss the injured Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Anthony Martial, but Man Utd have a reasonably clean bill of health right now.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Man Utd are priced at 1.91 (10/11) to win this game and that is simply too good to ignore. They have made a poor start to the season, but Newcastle are dreadful. The Red Devils beat Newcastle home and away last term, including a 2-0 victory at St James’s Park, and the Magpies have regressed considerably since then. They can no longer rely on the tactical wizardry of Rafa Benitez, and the players will be low on confidence after losing 5-0 to Leicester last time out.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href=";a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Betway">Man Utd to win at 10/11 (1.91) with Betway</a></strong></p></div>
