Manchester United travel north to Newcastle on Monday night when they look to settle against their top four rivals.

The Red Devils have had their last two games postponed due to a Covid-19 outburst within the squad, which even forced a temporary closure of their Carrington training ground.

But the first team returned to training last week and it’s a hurry to go, and United face a team from Newcastle in great need of points in their battle for Premier League survival.

Eddie Howe’s team has only won one of its 18 league games so far this season, but is still only three points from safety.

Newcastle and Man Utd meet for the 173rd time on Monday night, where the Red Devils triumph 90 times compared to the Magpies’ 43 wins.

Man Utd have scored 112 Premier League goals against Newcastle – no other team has scored more against a single opponent, and Arsenal have the same amount at Everton’s expense.

15 of those goals have come in United’s last four games against the Tyneside outfit, and have won each of those four meetings since a 1-0 loss at St James’ Park in early 2019/20.

The recent Covid problems have prevented Rangnick’s United from building the momentum they need in the hunt for a Champions League place and have watched as Arsenal and Tottenham strengthened their credentials.

But the Red Devils could not have asked for a much friendlier match to return to the pitch – Newcastle have low self-esteem, in a terrible form, and should realistically not be close to upsetting their guests on Monday.

Prediction: Newcastle 0-2 Man Utd
