Two massively inconsistent starts from these sides means truly anything could happen when they meet this weekend, but we’re almost guaranteed goals. The pair have scored a combined 152 in their 50 Premier League meetings – including six across two games last season.
It was the home side who won this fixture last year, with debutant Matty Longstaff’s impeccable drive handing Newcastle a 1-0 victory. That win was in no small part thanks to a raucous home crowd, however, and there will be none of that this time around.
There will be no Matty Longstaff, either, with the weekend coming just too early for him, Paul Dummett and Ciaran Clark. Matt Ritchie, who scored the winner against United a couple of years ago, and Martin Dubravka, who made his debut that afternoon, are long-term absentees, but Jamaal Lewis and Miguel Almiron should be fine despite knocks from their respective international breaks.
The Toon are currently seven places higher than their visitors, in ninth, and will remain above them whatever the score on Saturday. But they will be confident of extending that lead with Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson in dazzling form against a shaky visiting defence.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side lost 6-1 at home to Tottenham Hotspur in their last Premier League fixture, and all told have been second best in each outing so far, but they did beat Brighton & Hove Albion to prove they can never be written off.
The bad news is that new signings Alex Telles and Edinson Cavani are unavailable, as is Anthony Martial who was sent-off against Spurs. Harry Maguire is a doubt for the game too, having received a knock shortly before being sent-off on England duty, piling more pressure on a leaky defence.
The match kicks off at 8.00pm on Saturday. Read on below to find out how to watch Newcastle United vs Manchester United in the best possible quality, wherever you are in the world.

Live stream Newcastle vs Manchester United abroad using a VPN
Even if you have subscribed to the relevant rights holders, you won’t be able to use them when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch the match. When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming app or website and you’re in.
Watch Newcastle vs Manchester United in the UK
All Premier League fixtures will continue to be available to UK fans, at least until crowds are allowed back into stadiums, but those not picked for general TV schedule will cost £14.95 for pay-per-view access.
Unfortunately for Newcastle and Man United fans, this is one of those matches. If you’re in the UK and want to see Sky Sports coverage of this historic fixture, you will need to sign up via Sky Sports Box Office on your TV or online.
Of course, you can access your stream from another country – if you’re on holiday or working in the UK, for example – by using a VPN (see above).
