All eyes are on Tyneside this season to see just how far Newcastle United can continue to go under this new regime.

Manchester United supporters probably felt as if their League Cup win last season was a sign that times were changing for the better - but it seems as if there are more than a few hurdles they still have to overcome.

United lost to Manchester City and Newcastle before earning a hard-fought win over Fulham. They did proceed to lose 4-3 to Copenhagen, but made up for it not long after with wins over Luton and Everton.Match Prediction
Newcastle and the Red Devils have had some interesting clashes in recent years and while the hosts are arguably the better of the two, it feels like the visitors can always pull a rabbit out of the hat. In terms of the result, we think the safest bet possible is under 2.5 goals scored.
