Erik ten Hag will be looking to continue his good run of league form having won five of six in the top flight. However, their recent 3-3 Champions League draw against Galatasaray will have felt like a defeat after the way their lead was squandered.
United took the lead twice and had a two-goal cushion on their Turkish opponents. But Andre Onana had a difficult night in goal with a howler for Hakim Ziyechs second goal of the game and positional mistakes on the other two.
And the supercomputer, provided by BetVictor, has given Newcastle a 64.8 percent chance of getting three points in the Premier League clash this weekend. The computer has United down at 16.5 percent with a draw more likely at 18.7 percent.
The supercomputer has also predicted United to finish seventh come the end of the season with 63 points. Such a finish would secure European football for the club and is actually an improvement on predictions made by statistical computers just a couple of weeks ago.
