Manchester United are back in Premier League action on Sunday evening, welcoming Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United to the ‘Theatre of Dreams’ as they look to get their domestic campaign back on track.
The Red Devils will certainly be doing it with a spring in their step though, they travel back to Trafford from Turin clutching a comfortable first leg lead from their Europa League tie.

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s side expertly dispatched of La Liga outfit Real Sociedad, barely breaking a sweat as they romped to a 4-0 victory at the Allianz Stadium.
A brace from Bruno Fernandes – his 20th and 21st goals of this hectic season – followed up by Marcus Rashford and Dan James, were enough to ease any worries they may have had about next week’s second leg.
That should allow them to focus on the daunting task of closing the gap at the top of the Premier League and reeling in ‘noisy neighbours’ Manchester City – who could be 13 points ahead of them before they’ve even decided who’s starting.
While they have no problem scoring goals (they’re actually the division’s leading scorers) their real issue is at the back, especially at Old Trafford.
Though no-one has outscored them on home soil, only four sides have conceded more goals than them so far this season. Thankfully, their leaky defence is about to come up against what could be the perfect remedy.
Newcastle United have been utterly toothless on the road of late, losing eight their last nine away games and scoring just four times.
In fact, they failed to score a single goal in seven of those games – including at Championship side Brentford and bottom of the league Sheffield United, which remains their only clean sheet after 25 games.
To make matters even worse, they will also be without top scorer Callum Wilson for this trip. He’s contributed to 60% of their Premier League goals this season, which rises to 80% away from home.
The Magpies haven’t scored a goal on the road that didn’t involve Wilson since December 16th, and I don’t fancy their luck much here either.
It’s why I’m taking Manchester United to Win to Nil at 6/5 with BetVictor.
