It's perhaps fitting that the most intriguing fixture of week falls as the final match, where Manchester United will make the trek to St. James Park to take on a Newcastle United side that, historically, performs very well in front of their home fans.
Demba Ba has been in excellent form for the hosts. And with the Red Devils' defense very banged up, it stands to figure that the striker—along with Papiss Cisse—will cause havoc for the away side throughout the match, similar to what happened in their recent Capital One Cup match.
As mentioned, United's defense is missing several key players. Manager Sir Alex Ferguson will most likely be forced in sending a player like Michael Carrick or Chris Smalling into defense given the injuries to Nemanja Vidic and Phil Jones.
Having said that, the Red Devils have a fearsome attack that boasts arguably the best striker duo in the Premier League (if not the continent) and are more than capable of netting goals and creating plenty of attacking chances required to win this match.
Two very good teams meet here, and we're bound to see one very, very good football match as a result. Just who will triumph after the 90 minutes? Guess we'll soon find out.
