Eddie Howe sends a message to Sir Jim Ratcliffe before Man United faces Newcastle

After Man United’s 1-0 loss to Arsenal over the weekend, Erik ten Hag’s team gears up for a crucial match against Newcastle shortly after.

Eddie Howe recognizes that Newcastle holds a strong position to secure a sixth-place finish in the Premier League as they approach the last two games of the season.

The upcoming clash between Manchester United and Newcastle at Old Trafford carries significant weight in the race for sixth place and European qualification.

Erik ten Hag’s squad currently holds 54 points, trailing behind Chelsea and Newcastle, who both stand at 57 points. Man United’s remaining league fixtures include matches against Newcastle and Brighton.

Their recent 1-0 defeat to Arsenal, coupled with Chelsea’s victory over Nottingham Forest and Newcastle’s draw against Brighton, sets the stage for an intense battle for sixth place.

As they prepare to face Newcastle, Howe emphasizes the importance of consistency, acknowledging the team’s mixed performances, especially away from home.

“We’re aiming for consistency, although it hasn’t been entirely negative,” Howe mentions. “We’ve secured victories in important matches, particularly in cup competitions. However, we haven’t maintained a streak of consecutive wins, which is something we’re striving for.”

Despite the challenges, Howe expresses confidence in the team’s recent improvements and strong goal difference, highlighting the opportunity to seize control of their destiny without depending on external results.

Looking ahead to the crucial clash against Manchester United, Howe acknowledges the significance of the match and the determination required to achieve a positive outcome.

“Our focus is solely on the upcoming games, knowing they are both formidable opponents,” he states. “We’re approaching these matches with confidence, building on our positive performances towards the end of the season.”

Reflecting on past encounters with Newcastle, Howe acknowledges their recent dominance but remains optimistic about Newcastle’s chances, especially given their improved form and the competitive nature of the league.

As Newcastle seeks only their second league victory at Old Trafford in over five decades, the stage is set for a gripping showdown with both teams aiming to secure vital points in the race for European spots.
