I'd be surprised to see United lose this. They thrashed them convincingly at Old Trafford, and Newcastle will not be targetting this as a game to ensure survival.

That would be a mistake of ours if we don't. If we want to survive comfortably then we need to start beating the top 6 in a game or two like others down the bottom are. We have 1 point, a draw with Liverpool. There are a few teams who are only above us in the league because they got more points against the top 6. We are one of the better sides against the bottom 10 but could go down simply off top 10 results.

 

Slimani will start, he's our hope. Which reminds me of how Doumbia was our hope on loan last time we went down.

If Slimani gets the service, he'll score (eventually). May take a few chances but he will bag goals.

Well that's no good. Even Joselu scores every 5 games.

Yep, agree that Slimani can do the damage if need be. 

Still, United should be winning this and I think they'll see it through - thoughts @Teso dos Bichos?

Slimani not fit xD Dubravka to make his debut though. Lejeune back after a long spell out, in for Clark who has lost form.

We are in the bottom 3. Time to rally lads.

Yedlin vs Sanchez is a worry

Craig Pawson and his officials have made 2 terrible calls so far. 

Newcastle should have had a penalty after Gayle was tripped by Smalling. Wasn't even given as a free-kick as it was on the edge of the box. 

Jones touched the ball out for a corner right in front of the assistant and he gives a goal-kick.

could call it 3 bad decisions given that Yedlin wasn't booked for a clear pull on Lingard.

On a positive note, Newcastle's new keeper Dubravka is doing very well.

what is Sanchez doing there?! why not shoot in to an empty net instead of giving a second or 2 for defenders to get back?!

Mourinho shows why he got Sanchez. Got round the keeper, hesitated for some reason and his effort was blocked.

What was that pause for xD? Poor from Alex.

I'd love to see United's set piece record compared to teams like City and Liverpool. 

Such a physically imposing side being so weak at defending balls into the box just shows bad preparation. Which makes sense because they look lazily coached in most aspects.

Backs up his reason why he needs at least £300m extra. :ph34r:

Mourinho bringing on youth so he can use that as an excuse if they lose.

brilliant defending from Newcastle. 

Martial could have had a hat-trick by now. 2 shots blocked on the line from that corner.

Also helps that there's a youth player at United the same size as Matic.

Shelvey's been in inspired form today. lots of good tackles in and has helped out defence in general as well as helping with attacks. Very good all round midfield performance.

how the fuck has Valencia not got a yellow there? Kicks Atsu in the face. No question there should be a card there.

The only thing the ref has got right today is the Smalling dive.

The fact Smalling and Jones continued to feature for United during the years United haven't been the least bit competitive in the league, speaks volumes.

Quick random question. Who or what will Mourinho blame?

Will he say that Newcastle were lucky like he did with Bristol City?
