We all remember young Matty Longstaff striking home the winner against Manchester United at St. James’ Park in the early part of 2019/2020 and the youngster and his teammates will have the opportunity to do it all again this Boxing Day teatime.
Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United, who’ve surprised many by finding themselves in mid-table rather than embroiled in another relegation battle at this stage, travel to Old Trafford and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Red Devils for some festive footie.
United are a team that continue to baffle with one step forward and two steps back constantly being taken as victory over Manchester City has been followed by a draw with Everton and defeat at basement boys Watford in the league this month.
Who will get the upper hand in Manchester is anyone’s guess, this really is a tricky one to call!
How to watch the match
New and existing Amazon Prime Video customers in the UK will be able to see every kick from Old Trafford as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does battle with his fellow Manchester United legend Steve Bruce on internet access devices, Smart TV, Fire TV, games consoles, BT TV, Apple TV, Virgin’s V6 TV Box, Chromecast and TalkTalkTV.
There’s still time to take out a subscription before kick-off on Boxing Day with a 30-day free trial, cancellable at any stage, for the £7.99 per month or £79 per year streaming platform and other benefits include free UK next day delivery on amazon.co.uk items.
Amazon’s Premier League coverage has already earned plaudits from fans sick of the overpriced Sky Sports and BT Sport services.
The ‘big four’ member have entered the market with in-game perks such as 4K Ultra HD pictures and stadium atmosphere mode, allowing customers to feel like they’re at the ground rather than having to listen to the commentators.
But even if they would rather hear the summarises, there’s plenty of familiar voices and faces in the commentary box, and studio for that matter, for each game.
The case is the same over on the Goals Centre channel, where they will be able to see live goals from up and down the nation hosted by BBC Match of the Day’s Steve Bower.
