Newcastle v Man Utd Odds : Demba Ba to fire Toon to home win and bring healthy return for punters

The Super Sunday fixture in the Premier League this weekend sees Newcastle United and Manchester United go head to head from 4pm.

Looking at Newcastle to begin with, they have had a mixed start to the campaign and sit 10th at the moment, as Alan Pardew looks to turn draws in wins.

They did have a cracking win in the Europa League during the week though, so will be in confident mood for this one.

Newcastle always seem to raise their game for the visit of Manchester United, as they did during the 3-0 victory in this fixture last season, and the odds of the home win (3/1 with Paddy Power) simply do not do the side justice.

In Demba Ba, they have a striker on top of his game too. He was overshadowed by the arrival of Papiss Cisse at the end of last season, but this time around he is leading the way.

The former West Ham man has six goals to his name already and has five in his last three Premiership starts, so the 7/1 on him to find the net first with Bet365 jumps off the coupon and simply has to be backed.

As for Manchester United, they look a touch on the short side to take all three points and at a best price of 10/11 with Ladbrokes could be one to avoid this weekend.

Much will depend on their main man has been Robin Van Persie. With seven goals in as many games for the club, he is repaying the fee Ferguson paid for him with every game.

The Dutchman started with Wayne Rooney during the week too and this is a partnership that Manchester United hope will shine this weekend and beyond.

If it clicks, they may take some stopping.

Sir Alex Ferguson will be looking to bounce back from their shock defeat to Tottenham last week, but the visit to the Sports Direct Arena will not be easy.

United are unpredictable at the moment though and have got themselves into a habit of conceding early. This is something that Newcastle and Alan Pardew will look to exploit early on.

The longer this game goes with no goals though, the more Manchester United become favourites for the points.

Neither team will hold back, especially as the game progresses, so this should be a superb 90 minutes of Premier League football.
