Prediction: Man United 1-1 Newcastle United

Compared to the recent form, Newcastle United are in better shape than Man United. The Red Devils are very inconsistent throughout the season and suffered much against Newcastle United in previous meetings. But the return of Bruno Fernandes will give a massive boost to the Red Devils, yet it will be hard to win the match.
