Man Utd’s poor form of just a single win in their last five games (and two defeats on the bounce) may not suggest it but there’s reason to be optimistic ahead of this crunch clash with Newcastle. Key defender Lisandro Martinez is expected to be involved in this match after missing the last month with a muscle injury, and the Red Devils performance against Arsenal last weekend was much improved. They may not have earned any points, with the Gunners emerging victorious, but on-field Man Utd did not look like a side that has given up on achieving something this season. 

Meanwhile, Newcastle will travel down to Old Trafford knowing that a win will guarantee them a top-seven finish (and likely qualification for European football, depending on the result of the FA Cup final). The Magpies have lost just once in their last five, with three wins in that run, but the omens for this one aren’t very rosy. Newcastle have an atrocious record when playing at Old Trafford, managing just a single EPL win at the famous ground in almost 30 attempts (18 defeats, 9 draws). 

However, Newcastle will be comforted by their 0-3 victory over Man Utd at Old Trafford in the Carabao Cup in November, and their 1-0 league win over the Red Devils back in December at St Jame's Park, but based on the Magpies' historic inability to perform at this stadium, you simply cannot write Man Utd off, especially when the home side have a long history of getting results against this opposition.  

Here's how they line up:

Man Utd: Onana, Dalot, Casemiro, Evans, Wan-Bissaka, Mainoo, Amrabat, Diallo, McTominay, Garnacho, Fernandes.

Newcastle: Dubravka, Trippier, Krafth, Burn, Hall, Longstaff, Guimaraes, Anderson, Murphy, Isak, Gordon.

The Man Utd vs Newcastle live stream is a must-win for both sides and if there is a winner, they will likely finish above the loser, so expect an intense game where both sides push for the three points from the very first whistle. Here’s how to watch it online from anywhere.
