Why you should back Newcastle
The Magpies will be eager to get back to work after the disappointment in Paris, and they will enjoy the comfort of home. They are 6-0-1 in league play at St. James' Park, outscoring their opponents 18-4. Newcastle won the last meeting with United there in April, and they also knocked the reigning champs out of the League Cup this month. They had just 38% possession in that match, but their lethal counter-attack was the difference, and the Magpies put five of their 10 shots on target.
Defending and making the most of their shots are Newcastle's calling cards, as they lead the EPL in percentage of shots on net (41.1). They have 12 more shots on target than Man U despite a 17-shot deficit overall. Alexander Isak scored against PSG, and he has seven league goals. The Magpies have scored 31 goals, 15 more than Man U and conceded two fewer (14-16) in the 13 matches. Kieran Trippier has six assists, and Anthony Gordon has scored five goals and set up three.

Why you should back Manchester United
The Red Devils have had their issues on defense, but they haven't allowed a goal in their past three league matches and can score with anyone. They have allowed just six goals in six league road matches, second-fewest in the league. Man United beat Newcastle 2-0 in the League Cup final in February and are 5-2-2 in the past nine overall meetings. Manchester United put 10 of their 14 shots on target in the EFL Cup final, and Marcus Rashford and Casemiro scored the goals.
Casemiro is injured, but Rashford will be back after missing the UCL match on a red-card suspension. He has two goals so far but has double-digit goals in four of the previous five seasons, including 17 in 2022-23. Bruno Fernandes, Alejandro Garnacho and Scott McTominay all scored Wednesday in Turkey. Garnacho has just one goal, but the 19-year-old is brimming with confidence after his astonishing bicycle-kick goal last week in a 3-0 victory against Everton. See which team to pick here.
