Manchester United vs. Newcastle United: Live Stream, Time, & How to Watch The Match Online

Taking to the Old Trafford turf for the final time in the 2023-24 Premier League season, Manchester United pit their wits against fellow European hopefuls Newcastle United on Wednesday evening.

Erik ten Hag’s team have played Eddie Howe’s side in the Premier League and Carabao Cup already this term, and the upcoming clash between the sides holds a lot of significance.

The Tynesiders sit three points above the Reds in the table, with two games to go. Victory for Erik ten Hag’s men on Wednesday would eliminate that deficit, although Newcastle have a superior goal difference, and ensure we can still qualify for European football, depending on what happens on the final day of the league campaign.

THE OPPOSITION

Newcastle are also going for the European places in the Premier League table, as the season draws to a close. The Magpies have an outside chance of leapfrogging Tottenham in fifth place, sitting six points behind Spurs with two games to go.

United and Chelsea sit three points below Howe’s side, and history is on the Reds’ side when it comes to facing Newcastle at Old Trafford. Of the 28 home games we have played against the Magpies, we have lost only one.

The Reds have played Newcastle 178 times ever, in all competitions, winning 91 of these meetings. Of course, the Magpies eliminated us from the Carabao Cup earlier this season at the Theatre of Dreams, but, prior to that, they had not won at our home ground since December 2013.

While all of Scott McTominay, Lisandro Martinez, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford were back in full training last week, only the former made his comeback in the loss to Arsenal; the latter two were late withdrawals, while Martinez is still getting back up to speed with the rest of his teammates but is looking good for a return here.

The Red Devils were handed another concern on Sunday as Amad Diallo – an effervescent force on his first Premier League start of the season – limped off in the second half with a knee problem, but he played down his concern after the match and should be fine for Wednesday.

That is more than can be said for Tyrell Malacia (knee), Victor Lindelof (thigh), Harry Maguire (muscle), Raphael Varane (muscle), Anthony Martial (groin), Mason Mount (unspecified) and Luke Shaw (thigh), while all of Fernandes, Rashford and Willy Kambwala – just out of the treatment room – require assessment before kickoff.
