Premier League 2019/20, Newcastle United v Manchester United: Match Preview, Where to Watch, Betting Information and More
After their disappointing draw against AZ Alkmaar in midweek, the Red Devils turn their attention back to the PL, where their performances of late have been equally dissatisfying. United have managed just two wins from their seven games so far, scoring only nine goals in the same period.
The Magpies on the other hand have been poorer, having won just the solitary game. Steve Bruce has come under serious scrutiny for potentially degrading the squad's brand of football, as typified in the home draw against Brighton - where Newcastle had only 27% of the ball.
Both sides therefore, are desperately in need of the three points. On that note, we look at everything you need to know ahead of the fixture.

Key Player to Watch Out For
After a fiery start to life as a United player, the Welshman has slowed down in recent games. Daniel James has failed to continue his goal-scoring form and endured a dip in terms of direct contributions.
The youngster needs a turnaround in his fortunes, and it could very well come against Newcastle United. James has the speed and technical ability to hurt a team that has already let in 13 goals in seven games.
Manchester United win: 1.90
Newcastle United win: 4.20
