Manchester United’s 2023/24 season has been one to be forgotten quickly but also one that will be remembered for some negative records. They have already suffered the club’s most losses in a Premier League season with 14 and are on the road to set their lowest finish ever in eighth place. The Red Devils need to win to have a chance of qualifying for European football next season via the Premier League. If they fail to do so, their only shot will be through winning the FA Cup against town rivals Manchester City.

The club’s lack of identity and trajectory towards a project since Sir Alex Ferguson departure has been a constant issue. When the results are as bad as this season, it only amplifies the pressure and raises big questions for the coach and players future. Erik ten Hag could well be on his way out after his second season at the club. Looking at the results and the changes at the top of the club, it seems only a triumph in the FA Cup final can earn him the chance to stay in charge.

Newcastle depends solely on themselves: if they win both games they will finish in sixth place due to a healthy 10-goal difference advantage over Chelsea. However, a draw on Wednesday will suffice to guarantee seventh spot in the league which will award them a Conference League qualification if Manchester City wins the FA Cup final. The Magpies have found their rhythm recently, despite their last match ending up in a 1-1 draw against Brighton. They have managed to get four wins in their last six games.

Manchester United vs Newcastle Prediction

Manchester United win at 2.62

There are no signs that this Manchester United team will recover before the end of the season, but we have seen that at Old Trafford things can just click for the red team. Besides that, Newcastle has been one of the worst teams playing away from home this season, scoring just 17 points in 17 games.

Manchester United vs Newcastle Tips

Both teams to score at 1.30

Even if the Red Devils come out on top their defensive struggles, it not something that will disappear. They are on a streak of 10 consecutive games without a clean sheet, and Newcastle’s front three can cause trouble to any defence in the league.
