Teams Comparison.

Newcastle United are yet to win at home since Steve Bruce’s appointment and have failed to win six of their seven Premier League (PL) matches this season (W1, D2, L4). An attack that has scored just four PL goals has largely been the culprit, with just one strike at home. Furthermore, they had no ‘shot on target’ in their last PL game – their first such stat since December 2018. Regardless, Newcastle have conceded just two PL goals at home enjoying clean sheet spells between the 16th-45th and 75th-90th+ minute periods. Five of Newcastle’s PL matches this season went to the break with under 1.5 total match goals, which has also been the case in six of their last eight PL home H2Hs.

On similar lines, each of Manchester United’s seven PL games this season went to the break with a 1-0 scoreline, five in their favour. However, the period between the 51st-60th minute saw United concede three PL goals negating a surprisingly exemplary first 30-minute defensive returns (zero conceded). United’s tally (nine points) is their worst at this stage in a top-flight season since 1989/90. With no PL away wins since February (D3, L4), the woes might extend for the ‘Red Devils’ who have no clean sheets or multiple goals scored during this run. Indeed, just two of United’s last six PL matches saw multiple goals from either side, with all but one in this sequence finishing with under 2.5 total match goals.

Quick Facts.

  • Marcus Rashford has three PL goals this season, giving or extending United’s lead every time.
  • Joelinton is the only Newcastle player with a winning goal in the PL this season.
  • All three of Newcastle’s PL home games have been level at the break.
  • United haven’t scored a PL away goal beyond the 27th minute this season.
  • In just four PL seasons before, Newcastle have failed to win any of their first four home matches.
