Match Thread: Newcastle vs Manchester United

New, comments

The Mags try to get back to their winning ways against a Manchester United side that's a bit lower in the table than they're accustomed to.

Newcastle saw their four game winning streak snapped in most emphatic fashion with a 3-0 loss to Swansea on Wednesday. They don't have to wait long to try and right the ship as they head to Manchester to face the Red Devils.

For those of us that have followed the Premier League since its inception, it is very strange to see Manchester United in 9th, but that's where they're at. To say that David Moyes hasn't quite figured it out yet may be fair. After being winless in their last three matches, Manchester United will be eager to get into form.
