Manchester United travel to face Newcastle in a Premier League encounter at St James' Park this coming Saturday.

Newcastle are placed seventh with 23 points after 13 matches. Manchester United occupy a position as sixth in the league on 24 points.

The last time Newcastle played Manchester United, they booked three points to their account and look well primed to secure another win this coming Saturday.

The Red Devils hit the target 12 times in the last ten outings, which creates an average of 1.2 goals a game. They conceded 1.2 goals per match for a total of 12 goals, while claiming four clean sheets as well.

The last time these two sides facing off here came up against each other, Newcastle came away with a 2-0 win. They have a similar outcome in mind at St James' Park, but face stern opposition, of course.
