10th Feb 2018 | Premier League
Jose No Angel Of The North
The 'Special One' has never won up here in the Premier League and Rafa will be extremely keen to keep that record going.
It’s an interesting stat that Jose Mourinho has never won a Premier League game at St James’s Park in six attempts while the animosity between him and Rafa Benitez provides a nice sub-plot.
You can be sure the Toon Army would claim a draw here as a morale victory not least because another point would continue to keep them just the right side of the dreaded dotted line. Rafa knows that better opportunities for victories will come in due course.
The Magpies have looked well enough organised of late so let’s take the 7/2 with Ladbrokes on the Draw & Under 2.5 goals in the match.
Only 1 of Newcastle’s last 7 league outings have produced more than 2 goals and none of United’s last 3.
