Manchester United will be looking to build on their impressive run of Premier League results under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when they take on Newcastle United at St. James’ Park tomorrow.
Since Jose Mourinho’s sacking and the hiring of Solskjaer, Manchester United have gone on to win games against Cardiff City, Huddersfield Town and Bournemouth, scoring 12 goals in the process.
In Newcastle, though, Solskjaer could be provided with his hardest test yet.
While it has not be the greatest of seasons for the Magpies, defensively, they have been far from poor. They have conceded less goals than a lot of teams both below and above them, and are only topped by the the Premier League’s top four and Crystal Palace when it comes to clean sheets.
Under Rafael Benitez, Newcastle have become a sturdy side and have often given the division’s elite a lot of problems in encounters since their promotion last season.
Every expectation is that this revived Manchester United team, now playing free-flowing football thanks to the presence of Solskjaer in the dugout, will easily come out on top when they make the trip to St. James’ Park. However, considering the above, that may prove to be far from the case.
