Newport County vs Man Utd prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot tip – Newport County +4

  • Manchester United haven't beaten anyone by more than three goals all season.
  • Newport County can play without pressure while the heat is well and truly on Erik Ten Hag and his underperforming players.

Our Newport County vs Man Utd betting tips are built around the fact that Man Utd are struggling for form and confidence and have been all season. They didn't look particularly great against Wigan Athletic in the previous round and the Latics are only one league above Newport County. Sure, they are likely to win the tie but we can't see a battering.

Newport County vs Man Utd prediction – Other tips

Newport County 0-2 Man Utd

  • Man Utd have already beaten lower league opposition in the FA Cup this season when they beat Wigan 2-0 in the third round.
  • Newport County are unbeaten in seven matches so will have an element of confidence coming into this one.

BTTS – No

  • Manchester United will play their strongest eleven as it is their last chance to win a trophy this season. Their best team shouldn't concede chances, nevermind goals, against Newport County.
  • Manchester United kept a clean sheet against Wigan Athletic in the last round.

Newport County vs Man Utd team news

Newport County

The Newport County vs Man Utd lineups should see both teams go with their best available lineups. Newport are seeking history while Man Utd need the FA Cup to keep their season alive. The home side will likely go with the same team that overcame Eastleigh in their third-round replay with centre-back Josh Seberry the only injury absentee for the hosts.

Predicted Lineup: Townsend (GK), Mcloughlin, Clarke, Bennett, Delaney, Lewis, Morris, Charsley, Wildig, Evan, Palmer-Houlden

Man Utd

Man Utd could welcome back some injured stars for the trip to Wales on Sunday including Casemiro, Lisandro Martinez and Luke Shaw who have all been in first-team training this week. However, the match has come too soon for Harry Maguire, Mason Mount, Victor Lindelof, Anthony Martial and Tyrell Malacia. Andre Onana will miss the game as he is travelling back from AFCON 2023.

Predicted Lineup: Bayindir (GK), Dalot, Martinez, Varane, Shaw, Casemiro, Mainoo, Fernandes, Garnacho, Hojlund, Rashford

Confirmed lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to watch – Kobbie Mainoo

In a season of misery for Manchester United and their supporters, Kobbie Mainoo has been a shining light to give them hope for the future. Mainoo has stood out in midfield in virtually every match he has played for Man Utd and it will be interesting to see how he gets on against the physical Newport County midfield.
