A truly rotten day for Newcastle United.

Last weekend, they were demolished 5-0 at Leicester City.

That was the first time they’ve conceded 5+ goals for 179 League matches, dating back to February 2015, under John Carver.

They did have Isaac Hayden sent off in the first half but, even so, they did not manage a single shot on target in a truly embarrassing performance.

That was also Steve Bruce’s joint-heaviest defeat as a Premier League manager.

More importantly, it leaves the Magpies second bottom of the Premier League table with just five points on the board.

If they do not win this match, they will have failed to win any of their first four home matches of a top-flight season for the fifth time, after 1898/99, 1905/06, 2015/16 and last season.

This will be Steve Bruce’s 400th Premier League match but the Newcastle Head Coach is looking for a first win over Manchester United at the 22nd attempt.

Bruce also has the lowest win percentage, 27.8%, of any man to manage over 300 Premier League matches.

He and his club need some good news and they need it fast.

Could this game prove to be the perfect opportunity to kick-start Newcastle’s season?

Will Manchester United finally win away from home?

Manchester United meanwhile aren’t exactly in a good place either ahead of this trip to Tyneside.

Their last Premier League outing was on Monday night as they hosted Arsenal.

Despite taking the lead through Scott McTominay, the match finished in a pretty dull 1-1 draw.

Their haul of nine points from their opening seven league matches is their lowest since 1989-90.

They finished 13th that year, 31 points off top spot.

Also, they have now won 49 points from 28 Premier League games under Ole Gunnar Solskjær; two fewer than they did in their final 28 under José Mourinho (51).

Then, on Thursday, they were given a chance to claim a morale boosting win as they travelled to Den Haag to face AZ in the UEFA Europa League.

But, the match at the Cars Jeans Stadion finished in a truly abysmal 0-0 draw.

That was the first time in 25 Europa League matches that they’d failed to have a shot on target.

In fact, Man United have joined an elite group of teams who have failed to have shot on target in a Europa League game since 2016.

Other members are, Osmanlıspor, Skënderbeu Korçë and Zorya Luhansk.

That also means their last away win remains that 3-1 victory at Parc des Princes on March 6th, ten matches ago.

They last had a longer away winless run between February and September 1989, with 11 matches.

Can they change that here?

Well, they have beaten Newcastle away from home 13 times in the Premier League, only beating Aston Villa and Everton more often.

But, they have scored just 15 goals in their last 18 matches.

This is their worst run over an 18-game period since April-October 2007, also 15 goals.

Will Manchester United win this battle of fallen English giants?

Even if he wanted too, there is not enough quality in this Newcastle squad for Steve Bruce to make numerous changes.

Martin Dúbravka will be in goal, he has started every single Premier League match since joining the club in January 2018.

In defence, they should have Jetro Willems back from injury to start at left-back.

Emil Krafth will get the nod over DeAndre Yedlin on the other side.

Fabian Schär will partner captain Jamaal Lascelles at centre-back.

In midfield, Isaac Hayden is suspended after his red card last weekend.

That was the 52nd occasion in which Steve Bruce has seen one of his players dismissed in the Premier League, only one manager has seen more; Arsène Wenger.

Without Hayden, Ki Sung-yueng will come into midfield.

Further forward, Yoshinori Mutō’s underwhelming performance last weekend will see him drop out.

His only Premier League goal came in a 3-2 defeat at Old Trafford about a year ago.

Former club record signing Miguel Almirón is really underperforming too.

However, the Paraguayan has only played on the right-wing six times in his career, twice at Lanús when he was 21 years old and four times under Steve Bruce.

It’s no wonder he’s struggling.

But, he could be moved back into his preferred central role for this match.

Allan Saint-Maximin and Christian Atsu would therefore operate out-wide.

Joelinton will be up front.

His only goal so far came in the 1-0 win at Tottenham so can he secure another big win for the Toon Army?

If not, Andy Carroll could be the man from the bench.

Will Newcastle’s season ignite into life here?

As for Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjær has limited options too.

David de Gea captained the side on Thursday and will continue in goal as always.

In defence, Aaron Wan-Bissaka is back from illness but there’s no Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Diogo Dalot, Eric Bailey or Luke Shaw.

Ashley Young will continue at left-back in Shaw’s absence.

In midfield, Nemanja Matić and Fred started in Den Haag.

Scott McTominay will definitely come back in; his goal against Arsenal was his first at Old Trafford in his 25th appearance at the ground in all competitions.

However, Paul Pogba is a major doubt so Andreas Pereira will start alongside the Scotland international.

Further forward, Jesse Lingard came on on Thursday but went off injured shortly after.

He joins Anthony Martial in being ruled out of this game.

Thus, Juan Mata, Dan James and Angel Gomes could make up the attacking trio behind Marcus Rashford.

Manchester United have scored five goals in their last 10 competitive away matches; their worst goal tally over a 10-game period away from home since March-September 1984 when they managed four goals.

Will this side get enough goals to beat a really struggling Newcastle?

Surely Man United’s away day troubles will end here won’t they?
