Red Devils have to deliver


Manchester United face something of a must-win game at teatime on Saturday when they welcome Newcastle United to Old Trafford.

Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho appears to be under mounting pressure after a run of four games without a win, so a visit from a struggling Magpies outfit who have yet to win a game this season looks to be a perfect fixture to get things back on track.

However, four times in their last eight league visits to OT Newcastle have left with at least a share of the spoils.

Man Utd to win by one goal @ 23/10

This time around the hosts should have just enough to send the visitors packing and give Mourinho some much-needed breathing space in a season which has so far been problematic both on and off the pitch.

As a back-up option you might want to consider the Red Devils to win to zero at 13/10, with Newcastle having failed to score in their last two games.

Meanwhile there looks to be an intriguing game in prospect at the King Power Stadium, when Everton are the visitors for Leicester City.

Leicester v Everton, score draw @ 3/1

The Foxes have been somewhat up and down so far this term, but wins over Huddersfield Town and Newcastle in their last two games have shown the attacking prowess they possess.

England striker Jamie Vardy was on target in both of those victories and he looks be a decent prospect at 4/1 to score the first goal of the game against the Toffees, having come back firing after a three-match suspension.

Also worth bearing in mind is that only twice in the last 12 meetings of these two teams have both sides failed to score, so you can expect goals on Saturday afternoon, with the visitors likely to be right in the game after a 3-0 win at home to Fulham last time out in the league.

Burnley to win to zero @ 2/1

Finally, a resurgent Burnley take on Huddersfield at Turf Moor, with the Clarets seemingly back on track after seeing off Bournemouth and Cardiff City in their last two league games.

Six goals scored in those two victories also give a clear indication that Sean Dyche’s side are over the rut which set in as they were overworked in trying to reach the Europa League group stages.

You might also fancy Burnley at 13/10 to keep a clean sheet against a Terriers outfit who are bottom of the table and who have only scored three times in seven league games.
