The Magpies take on the Red Devils for the return leg of the Premier League tie and will hope to cause an upset on Sunday afternoon

Newcastle United entertain Manchester United at St James’ Park for Sunday’s crucial English Premier League encounter.

Rafael Benitez's men are still licking their wounds from their last two outings. They were dealt with a comeback blow by Burnley and Crystal Palace as the teams clawed back to deny the Magpies maximum points.

Benitez’ side go into this fixture on a low-key following their shambolic form which has seen them fail to win their last eight home games. They are underdogs with Bet9ja at (5.60).

On the other hand, Jose Mourinho’s men are full of confidence after silencing Huddersfield Town 2-0 at Old Trafford, thanks to goals from Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku. They are favourites at (1.67) to bag maximum points.

Manchester United’s last two English topflight encounters have ended on a no winner, no vanquished state. So, it is not an unwise move asking punters to back a draw at a risky (3.75) with the same firm.

Also, the 13-time EPL kings’ last six away matches out of 13 have witnessed a total score under three. So it is worth backing the fixture to produce less than three goals again at a (1.75).

Sanchez opened his United goals account against the Terriers and will be looking forward to adding more against the Toons. Should he strike a formidable partnership with Lukaku, chances are that the encounter could produce more than two goals which is evens (2.00).

Punters who desire to eke out a fortune from this duel must back for both teams to score at a juicy (1.94) with Bet9ja. This bet has paid out in Newcastle’s last four Premier League games.
