    in summary
    Manchester United prepare to face Newcastle as both teams battle for a European spot in their last fixtures of the season.

    Manchester United play their last home game of the season at Old Trafford against Newcastle United. Newcastle United won the reverse fixture 1-0 at St. Jame's  Park with a goal from Anthony Gordon.

    Goal
    Anthony Gordon scores against Manchester United.


    Manchester United go into this match after  after a 1-0 defeat against Arsenal at Old Trafford. The single goal came as a result of a lapse in concentration from Casemiro who kept Kai Havertz on side which allowed him to assist Leandro Trossard to score the only goal of the match. Other than that mistake, Manchester United were very good defensively compared to their match against Crystal Palace where they conceded four goals in a match that ended 4-0 in favour of Crystal Palace.


    After their defeat against Arsenal, Manchester United broke unwanted records. They recorded 19 losses in all tournaments,  the most since the 1977/78 campaign and also conceded 82 goals, the most in 53 years. Manchester United could also suffer 10 defeats at Old Trafford for the first time in a season if they are defeated by Newcastle United.

    Manchester United have won only one  of their last five matches, the win came against Sheffield United. In the other four matches, two ended in draw and two ended in a defeat for Manchester United. Erik Ten Hag will be hoping to end this poor run of form.

    Scoreline


    Newcastle United were on a two game winning streak till their 1-1 draw against Brighton at the American Express Community Stadium. A point was enough to keep Newcastle in mathematical contention for fifth place until Tottenham face Manchester city. A one goal difference is separating Newcastle from Chelsea. This is due to Chelsea's 3-2 victory against Nottingham Forest.

    Manchester United and Newcastle United have played against each other 178 times. Manchester United have won 91 matches, Newcastle United have won 46 matches and both teams have settled for a draw in 41 matches. However, Newcastle's last win against Manchester United at Old Trafford was in 2013 when David Moyes was still in charge at Manchester United.


    Manchester United will be without Mason Mount, Victor Lindelof, Raphael Varane, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Tyrell Malacia due to injury. However, Lisandro Martinez, Amad Diallo Traore, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes could return to the match day squad.

    Newcastle United will be without Sven Botman, Joseph Willock, Lewis Miley and Matt Targett due to injuries. Alexander Isak and  Callum Wilson maybe available if they pass the late fitness test. Sandro Tonali will be absent due to suspension.

    Both Manchester United and Newcastle United are battling to qualify for European club football next season with both teams in 6th and 8th place respectively. This looks to be a match with a lot of nerves.
