Manchester United vs Newcastle United
Competition: English Premier League
Match date: Friday, 26 December 2014
Kick Off Time: 15:00 GMT
Venue: Old Trafford, Manchester, United Kingdom

Man United have been in fine form lately as they finally have built chemistry with each other after buying up some of the world’s best talent. Not losing over their last 7 EPL matches, including a 6 game winning streak that unfortunately ended last Saturday at Aston Villa in a 1-1 draw, has found them sitting comfortably in 3rd position after 17 rounds of league play. David De Gea will look to add to his 4 Clean Sheets over 9 home matches as they play one of the weaker road offenses in the English Premier League. Rademel Falcao will want to add to his 2 goal tally after scoring a fine header last weekend at Aston Villa. Wayne Rooney will lead the attack that has managed an impressive 19 goals over 9 Home games this season. Look for this scoring success to continue on Boxing Day as Manchester United will need to continue building up their new identity under new manager Louis Van Gaal if they are to keep up with the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea FC in the title race. Injuries to the defense shouldn’t bother them much as they allow a mere .66 goals per home match to visiting opponents.
Newcastle team have lost their last 3 matches in all competitions and they won’t have much hope of changing this trend in Old Trafford’s hostile environment. They have only scored 8 goals in 9 away games while allowing a dismal 14 in that span. Playing a Manchester United team that has only allowed 6 goals at home, Newcastle United stand little chance of scoring in this match as they have only put away 1 goal over their last 3 games. Ayoze Perez will draw the start at striker with a huge task of scoring for his side and hopefully surprising everyone in Manchester. He has 4 goals in Premier League play this season and Newcastle will do everything they can to implement a way to get him in goal-scoring position on Boxing Day this Friday. Newcastle have to play within themselves to have a chance but it is not expected to help them much against the deadly Man United attack.

Probable lineups:
Manchester United: de Gea – Jones, Carrick, Evans – Valencia, Fletcher, di Maria, Young – Rooney – Falcao, van Persie.
Newcastle United: Alnwick – Janmaat, S. Taylor, Coloccini, Dummett – Anita, Colback – Sissoko, Cabella, Ameobi – Papis Cisse.
