Newcastle vs Man Utd H2H record

The Newcastle vs Man Utd rivalry is one that goes back decades with its peak coming in the 1990s when Kevin Keegan's Newcastle went head to head with Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United for Premier League titles. The two teams have faced each other an incredible 177 times over the years with Man Utd coming out on top more often than not

  • Newcastle Wins: 45
  • Draws: 41
  • Man Utd Wins: 91

Newcastle have fared better against Man Utd in the years since Sir Alex Ferguson retired and they recorded a 3-0 victory over the Manchester club the last time the two sides faced each other. Will that give them an edge on Saturday?

Newcastle 1-1 Man Utd – 27th December 2021

On a foggy night in the North East, Man Utd visited St James' Park with Ralf Rangnick fresh in the hot seat following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's sacking earlier in the month. Allan Saint-Maximin gave the home side the lead early on before Edison Cavani levelled the scores in the second half. It was a drab affair in what turned out to be drab seasons for both clubs.

Man Utd 0-0 Newcastle – 16th October 2022

The first Man Utd vs Newcastle match since the Saudi takeover of Newcastle came in October 2022. If the 1-1 match at St James' Park ten months earlier was drab then this one was a bit of a snooze-fest with Eddie Howe's men time-wasting from the first minute. The home side still should have won it though, with Marcus Rashford nodding wide from inside the six-yard box in stoppage time.

Man Utd 2-0 Newcastle – 26th February 2023

One of the biggest Man Utd vs Newcastle matches of all time took place in February 2023 as the two clubs faced off at Wembley in the Carabao Cup final. Man Utd won the match without ever getting out of second gear with the two goals coming in the first half via a Casemiro header and a deflected effort from Marcus Rashford. The Reds won the cup which meant Newcastle's long wait for a trophy rumbles on.

Newcastle 2-0 Man Utd – 2nd April 2023

Just five weeks after the Carabao Cup final, Newcastle got revenge on Man Utd at St James' Park. The home side were utterly dominant throughout and the 2-0 scoreline flattered the visitors. Joe Willock and Callum Wilson got the goals which helped Newcastle to their firs top-four finish in the Premier League in more than 20 years. Man Utd ended the season one place above Newcastle in third.

Man Utd 0-3 Newcastle – 1st November 2023

The most recent Man Utd vs Newcastle H2H came in November 2023 in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup. At the time, Man Utd were in a slump and Erik Ten Hag's job was rumoured to be under threat. Newcastle rocked up and made matters worse for the Dutchman, swatting United away 3-0 with ease to end their title defence. Newcastle have a quarter-final tie with Chelsea still to look forward to.

Potential MVP – Bruno Fernandes

Bruno Fernandes has become the captain Manchester United need in recent weeks, helping to drag his team over the line in difficult games. Fernandes recently scored a last-minute winner against Fulham in the Premier League and he scored a screamer against Galatasaray on Wednesday night.

Fernandes may not be hitting the same numbers in terms of goals and assists that he did when he first joined the club but he is still United's most important influential player. After handing penalty duties to Marcus Rashford last weekend, Fernandes will be hoping to provide a similar gift to Rasmus Hojlund on Saturday to get the young Dane off the mark in the Premier League.

Key trend

Newcastle are unbeaten in the Premier League against Manchester United since September 2021 and will be keen to continue that this weekend. The Magpies are the favourites coming into the match, which is unsurprising given United's away record against top teams in England and the fact they played in Turkey on Wednesday. We are going for a Newcastle win with both teams scoring.
