What a match we’ve got in store in one of the late kick offs in the Premier League. You can get yourself a risk-free shot at winning £188 when you back my SGM between Manchester United and Newcastle United at Old Trafford. In order to do so, you’ll need take advantage of Paddy Power’s risk free £30 bet offer for new customers and use your £30 risk free bet on the Same Game Multi I’ve picked for that match.
Open a Paddy Power account and your first bet will be risk free up to a maximum of £30. If you get set up and deposit £30, you can get a risk-free shot at winning £110 by backing my Same Game Multi. If the SGM is a winner, you win £166, if it loses, your stake will be returned as withdrawable cash.
Given these two sit next to each other in the current Premier League table, the fortunes and gulf in class is evident to see. Manchester United seem to have hit a bump in the road after very impressive wins over Spurs, Man City & AZ Alkmaar. They’ll be looking to get back to winning ways at home in convincing fashion.
Newcastle have not won at Old Trafford since 2013 and I’m expecting more of the same as a struggling Newcastle head to Manchester. Ole’s team are far more comfortable at home than away from home and I’m confident they’ll get the job done here.
One thing that you can be sure of is that Manchester United play a style of football which makes them strong going forward but also weak at the back. I’m expecting Newcastle to cause them problems, especially considering this is a Manchester United side that hasn’t kept a clean sheet in the league since the 14th of September.
With a few of Newcastle’s big signings seemingly finding their feet in recent matches, I believe they’ll be looking to counter using their pacey and skilful attack in this one, against a Manchester United defence that has time and time again, struggled against pace.
Manchester United will be on top in this one and creating chances is something they don’t struggle with. Rashford has been a shining light on the goals front this season and with the amount of chances he seemingly gets, I’m confident he’ll be amongst the goals on Boxing Day.
The return of Paul Pogba could also play a telling role in this, with the Frenchman providing some much-needed flair and creativity for the attackers going forward. Getting Rashford to score at 1.75 looks like a very solid price to me, considering the woes and lack of pace at the back of this Newcastle defence.
