The Premier League returns this weekend, with excitement building for the homecoming of Cristiano Ronaldo. For today’s betting tip, we’ll be focusing on the clash between Manchester United and Newcastle United at Old Trafford as Ronaldo returns to the club where he made his name. 

Manchester United Analysis

Manchester United have made a steady start to their Premier League season. They blew Leeds United away in the opening game of the season, before closer encounters with both Southampton and Wolves. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team are unbeaten through three match days and they will look to continue that against Newcastle at Old Trafford.

Alongside their unbeaten beginning to the season, fans will welcome home Cristiano Ronaldo to the Theatre of Dreams this Saturday. With Rashford still sidelined and Dan James departing for Leeds, Ronaldo could make his first Premier League start since 2009 and help United’s attacking options.

Fellow signing Jadon Sancho picked up a knock with England and is a doubt for the game.

Newcastle United Analysis

Whilst Manchester United have impressed, Steve Bruce’s Newcastle are still searching for their first victory of the Premier League season. They have conceded eight goals so far this season, including four against West Ham, and they only have a sole point to show for their efforts. The Magpies thought they had secured their first win last time out, before conceding a 96th minute penalty which cost them three points.

As well as poor form, Newcastle are struggling with an injury crisis. Martin Dubravka and Karl Darlow look set to miss another round of fixtures so third-choice Freddie Woodman will remain between the sticks for Newcastle. Main goal-threat Callum Wilson is being treated as a week-to-week assessment by the training staff and his loss would be devastating for a Newcastle team with a lack of depth.

Head To Head Analysis

These two teams sit at opposite ends of the Premier League table through three matchdays. Manchester United are sat third whilst a loss this weekend could see Newcastle plunged into the relegation zone.

The track-record isn’t in Newcastle’s favour either. Steve Bruce’s side are three without a win against United and have conceded ten goals in the process. And defence has been Newcastle’s achilles heel this campaign – conceding eight in three matches.

This is the first time in 12 years that Cristiano Ronaldo will play at Old Trafford. With Manchester United’s solid start to the season, as well as Newcastle’s early season struggles, this could be a high-scoring affair with Manchester United making a mark as possible title contenders.
