“I’d be shocked” – Paul Merson predicts Newcastle vs Man Utd & assesses both teams.



Before the match between Manchester United and Newcastle United that will take place tonight at St. James’ Park, Paul Merson has shared his thoughts on the two teams.We will move up to fifth place and leapfrog the Red Devils with a victory, and the Sky Sports pundit is anticipating precisely that. He has stated that he would “be shocked” if Eddie Howe’s Mags did not come away with all three points.

Despite the fact that he calls the judgment made by the video assistant referee in Paris “an absolute disgrace,” he believes that we will be able to recover against a vulnerable Manchester United team that blew 2-0 and 3-1 leads in Galatasaray on Wednesday night.Merson is of the opinion that ten Hag’s team is “more ruthless” than the Chelsea team that we defeated by a score of 4-1 the previous weekend. However, he is of the opinion that they do not possess the necessary qualities to “tough it out” under the spotlights on Tyneside. The following is an excerpt from his weekly prediction piece that he published for Sportskeeda:Given the results of their games during the week, both of these teams must be in utter disbelief. Until PSG made a comeback right before the final whistle, Newcastle must have been under the impression that they had qualified for the next round. Although they were exceptional, the decision made by the video assistant referee was a complete and utter embarrassment.


“Manchester United continues to waste their opportunities to advance.” At the end of the encounter against Galatasaray, the score was 3-1, and it seemed like a basketball game. It was very open to the public. The fact that Erik ten Hag is no longer managing Ajax is something that he needs to come to terms with.


It is necessary for him to have the ability to close his business. You are not required to provide entertainment at all times. At other times, you are required to take the more practical approach. By the way, I believe that they still have a chance of advancing to the knockout stages of the Champions League. I believe that they are still in the running. As a result of the fact that Bayern has already qualified for the tournament, I believe that they might field a less powerful team against them.However, United has a few problems that need to be addressed. Andre Onana ought to have been able to prevent both of Hakim Ziyech’s goals from being scored. The performance was tremendously disheartening, and as the custodian of such a prestigious club, you cannot continue to let your players down by allowing them to achieve significant victories.


“United kicked David de Gea out of the club, and the general consensus seemed to be that they would be able to compete for titles with a better goalkeeper,” the article states. For some reason, however, it has not been successful with Onana, has it?Kobbie Mainoo must be trusted to play in the base of the midfield, which brings us to our second point. After his outstanding performance against Everton the previous weekend, I am perplexed as to why they chose to go with Sofyan Amrabat in the match against Galatasaray. There must be some connection between this and the fact that it is not a good idea to throw a young player into the deep end in an environment as unfriendly as the RAMS Park.


If, on the other hand, you are old enough, you are good enough. Despite the fact that Mainoo ought to start this match, I do not believe that Manchester United will be able to hold their own against Newcastle United. Despite the fact that Manchester United is more ruthless than Chelsea, the Magpies delivered an outstanding performance over the weekend, and it would be shocking if they did not win this week.
