Paul Merson makes bold Newcastle prediction ahead of massive Man Utd clash

Paul Merson is backing Newcastle to leave Old Trafford with all three points and a comfortable win ahead of tonight’s huge game in the race for Europe.

The Sky Sports pundit thinks Eddie Howe’s Mags will have “miles too much” for Erik ten Hag’s Red Devils, believing we’ll “win this one quite easily” with a 3-1 victory.

He feels Man Utd look “desperately devoid of ideas” in attack and “won’t be able to cope” with Alexander Isak and Anthony Gordon, although we’ll have to hope the former is OK to play after struggling with illness over the past few days.

Speaking to Sportskeeda ahead of the game, Merson said: “Newcastle United will have miles too much for Manchester United, I expect them to win this one quite easily.
