At the opposite end of the table, the Magpies find themselves second from bottom level with last-place Norwich City on ten points and 17 points behind Man Utd.

Man Utd head into Monday’s clash on a three-game winning streak in the Premier League. After beating Arsenal, they saw off Crystal Palace before dispatching Norwich.

Thanks to an impressive draw with Chelsea last month, the Red Devils have avoided defeat in each of their previous four league matches.

As for Newcastle, they were thrashed 4-0 by Man City last time out.

The Magpies have lost each of their previous three Premier League games, conceding 11 goals along the way. They also scored just once in that time.

When you look at the bigger picture, Newcastle have only managed to win one of their 18 league matches this term – recording seven draws and ten losses in the process.

Head-to-head: Man Utd have won each of their last four matches against Newcastle, scoring a combined total of 15 goals.

Paul Pogba remains absent for Man Utd. There are also question marks over the fitness of Raphael Varane, Victor Lindelof, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Anthony Martial.

Although Man Utd have not been at their best of late, they shouldn’t struggle to overcome struggling Newcastle.
