After an underwhelming start, Newcastle are on a long unbeaten run that stretches back to the end of August, and have scored nine goals in their last two games.

Their opponents, Manchester United have found their feet after a poor start to the season that saw them lose 4-0 away at Brentford.

Since then they have beaten Arsenal, but recently suffered a humiliating derby defeat at the hands of Manchester City.
