Weekends always bring an abundance of sports, football events. Including in the English Premier League. 1 of the giants, Manchester United, hosts Newcastle on Sunday. Eric Ten Hag vs Eddie Howe – who wins?
“Mancunians” once again showed the ability to quickly and effectively respond to insulting, painful defeats. Everyone remembers that the official debut of the new mentor, Ten Hag, was a failure: 1-2 with Brighton, 0-4 with Brentford. But Eric quickly worked on his mistakes, and after that he was able to win four times with his wards, including against Liverpool and Arsenal. October started off 3-6 in a derby against Manchester City. And nothing, after that, the “Red Devils” were able to immediately win the Europa League, and then – to issue and 2-1 with Everton. By the way, a strong-willed victory was issued at the expense of the ball by Ronaldo. Well, it is impossible not to note the next goal of an expensive newcomer, Anthony.
The Magpies will remember last season for a long time. Then the long-awaited change of ownership took place. And then – and a miraculous rescue from relegation to the Championship, due to the talents of the new coach, Eddie Howe, and generous investments from Saudi Arabia. In the new season, Black and White were expected to make further progress, especially against the backdrop of curious, targeted enhancements. But, having won against Nottingham Forest in the 1st round, then the team gave out 5 draws in the defeat to Liverpool. And only in October, after a pause for the games of the national teams, they gave out 4-1 with Fulham (with Almiron’s double) and 5-1 with Brentford (and here Bruno Guimaraes already scored twice). As a result, it turned out to rise to the European Cup zone.
Recently, Newcastle managed to beat Manchester United only once in 8 matches. At the same time, the “Red Devils” were able to win 6 times. However, in the 2021/2022 season, the Magpies were able to draw at least in December at home.
Newcastle is not bad, but still it is too early for them to aim for victories or even draws on the grand field. We recommend betting on success at home Manchester United.
