Looking at performance, Newcastle counter Manchester United (MU) can be regarded as a meeting between two mediocre teams. Newcastle has collected just five points from seven matches, and are currently stranded in the red zone.
Meanwhile, MU only has nine points. Worse yet, it’s been a long time since Manchester United won an away victory.
Rank 10 Manchester United will travel to the headquarters of the 19th ranked team Newcastle in the 8th week of the 2019/20 Premier League, Sunday (6/10/2019).
MU without a win in the last four matches in all competitions. The series of negative results from the team made by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer began with a 0-2 defeat against hosts West Ham in the 6th week. After that, Manchester United only drew 1-1 at Rochdale in the Carabao Cup, before a penalty shootout passed them to the next round.
MU then drew 1-1 at Arsenal in the 7th week, and a goalless draw against host AZ Alkmaar in the Europa League.
MU has just won two of seven matches in the Premier League this season. They won the two wins at home, namely 4-0 against Chelsea and 1-0 against Leicester City.
MU without a single win in their last seven away games in the Premier League. More broadly, Manchester United have been without a win in their last ten away matches in all competitions (M0 S4 K6), since beating PSG in the last 16 of the Champions League last season, in early March 2019.
MU is disappointing, but Newcastle is more pathetic. In the Premier League this season, when Manchester United won just two wins, Newcastle won just once. One victory was won by Newcastle with a score of 1-0 at Tottenham headquarters in the third week.
Of the seven games they have played in the league this season, four of them passed by Newcastle in defeat. The Magpies bent Arsenal 0-1, Norwich City 1-3, Liverpool 1-3, and last (last week) they made the hosts of Leicester City five goals without reply.
It seems difficult to find a winner in a clash between two teams whose performances are both below this standard.
