Manchester United vs Newcastle United: Mark Lawrenson shares his prediction for the game

BBC Sports pundit Mark Lawrenson has shared his prediction for Manchester United’s clash against Newcastle united at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Red Devils have struggled at Old Trafford this season, and in recent games collecting just 10 points from our last 7 games.

But Liverpool legend Lawrenson has backed the Red devils to win 2-0 against the Magpies on Sunday.

Speaking to the BBC, Mark Lawrenson said: “Newcastle are the team that everyone in the bottom three thinks they can catch – realistically they are the only other team who could still be dragged into the relegation places.

“The Magpies are not playing well, and that gives the sides below them hope that if they keep going they can catch them. I don’t see anything happening at Old Trafford to change that.

“Manchester United have had a few problems at home in breaking down teams who go there just to defend but I think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will find a way through. The Magpies won’t carry much of a threat.”
