* Betting odds were correct at the time of publication but are subject to change

It's time for our Premier League predictions ahead of one of the big games this weekend, Newcastle vs Manchester United. Newcastle have already beaten the Red Devils this season in the League Cup, and a win this weekend will see the Magpies fly above their guests in the Premier League table.

Following that win over Everton, Man Utd failed to secure the result they desperately needed in the Champions League against Galatasaray despite leading 3-1 at one point.

Newcastle vs Man Utd team news

Newcastle

Eddie Howe's men ran out comfortable 4-1 winners against Chelsea in their last league game. The two clubs went in level at the break at St James' Park after Alexander Isak had given the home side an early lead, only for that to be cancelled out by a Raheem Sterling effort.

However, the second 45 belonged to Newcastle, who scored three more times, two before Reece James was shown a red card for two bookable offences, to win the match 4-1.

Matt Targett, Javier Manquillo, Joseph Willock, Harvey Barnes, Sven Botman, Elliot Anderson, Callum Wilson, Dan Burn and Jacob Murphy make up the long injury list for the Magpies, but Sean Longstaff could make his return to the squad this weekend.

Predicted Lineup: Pope (GK), Trippier, Schär, Lascelles, Livramento, Almirón, Guimarães, Miley, Joelinton, Isak & Gordon

Man Utd

Man Utd didn't have to work that hard to defeat Everton 3-0 in their own backyard last weekend. The Toffees created chances in the first half but failed to take any of them, and Alejandro-Garnacho scored a fantastic opener to set the Red Devils on their way to three points.

Marcus Rashford made it 2-0 from the penalty spot in the second half, and Anthony Martial scored a third to wrap up the victory. Carlos Casemiro, Lisandro Martinez, Mason Mount, Jonny Evans and Christian Eriksen look set to miss the trip to the North East through injury.

Predicted Lineup: Onana (GK), Lindelöf, Maguire, Shaw, Dalot, Fernandes, McTominay, Mainoo, Martial, Rashford & Garnacho

Player to Watch: Kieran Trippier

Newcastle's 33-year-old full-back is their most creative player, with six assists in the Premier League alone this season.

Man Utd will have to stop Trippier if they want to get anything out of this game but that won't be an easy task as the full-back gets forward in open play and puts plenty of crosses into the box. He is also deadly from set-pieces, so the visitors can't afford to give away any cheap corners or free-kicks.

Trippier hasn't scored in the league this season and is due to score at least once. Could that be this weekend in a huge game against Man Utd?
