Hunting down ways to live stream Newcastle vs Man United might be one of the more surprising ways to spend Boxing Day's early hours. The big story of the match sees Man U legend Steve Bruce leading Newcastle as coach to the field at Old Trafford — where the Magpies haven't won since 2013.

Of course, it's plenty hard to predict how the Newcastle team will fare, as their away record this season is a poor 3-7. Can Man U's trio of offense — Daniel James, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford — even the scores that Newcastle's Andy Carroll puts forth?

Man United has the historical edge — winning 28 of the 49 fixtures between the two, whereas Newcastle's taken only 7 — but this year's team is not inspiring confidence. Not only are they coming off a loss on Sunday against Watford, but betting lines favor Newcastle as well. 

The one glimmer of hope? Paul Pogba's return to Man U gave the team a boost, according to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. We'll have a better grip on what to expect as soon as we start live streaming Newcastle vs Man United, which U.K. audiences can do on Amazon Prime Instant Video.

Newcastle vs Man United LIVE STREAM Start Time

The big game happening at Old Trafford in Manchester begins at 12.30pm GMT local time today (Dec. 26), which is 5:30pm Eastern and 2:30pm Pacific in the US — so everyone can watch it on both sides of the Atlantic. Those in Australia needed to set an alarm for the 9:30am AEDT start time.
