Manchester United vs Newcastle

After finishing in the top four and winning the League Cup last season, Erik ten Hag was expected to kick on in 2023/24 and push the Red Devils up the table. However, United’s form has been dismal over the last few months, with one win in their last eight league matches (versus Sheffield United on April 24) seeing Man United slip out of the top seven all together.

Manchester United still have a chance to secure some form of European football for the 2024/25 campaign, but a loss on Wednesday would kill off those hopes.

Like Manchester United, Newcastle have struggled to repeat their form from last term, which saw them earn Champions League football.

But unlike the Manchester outfit, Newcastle have returned to their best in the final few months of the season, with just one loss in eight meaning a draw versus United would guarantee the Magpies a top-seven finish this season.
