After both enjoyed crucial victories on Sunday, who will kick on and claim three more precious points in this clash of two Uniteds?

Newcastle were victorious over Manchester United at the weekend, with Joe Willock and Callum Wilson on target at a raucous St James’ Park.

The Magpies now face three successive away games, before their next match on Tyneside which is a huge game against Spurs.

So, can Newcastle cement their place in the top four as they seek to qualify for the Champions League for the first time since 2003?

West Ham United meanwhile are currently enjoying a second successive European tour, looking forward to a quarter-final clash with Gent next mid-week.
