Betting Tip: @ Manchester United to win 1-0 @ 11/2 with bet365

Victor Lindelof hasn’t been blessed with first team opportunities since arriving at Manchester United from Benfica, with the Red Devils paying more than £31 million for his services.

However, the Swede’s performances against Italy in the World Cup qualifiers were outstanding and perhaps Jose Mourinho will bring him into the team, especially if Phil Jones is nursing an injury after limping off for England.

Mourinho will have loved the way that Sweden managed to shut out the Azzurri over 180 minutes to reach the World Cup, with his United side having enjoyed five consecutive clean sheets at Old Trafford.

Newcastle are the visitors on Saturday and it’s been a cautious approach from Rafael Benitez when the Magpies take to the road. Just eight goals have been scored in the five matches on the road and this weekend’s match might be typically low-scoring.

Some players will be feeling the fatigue of playing international football and plane journeys, with United likely to continue the trend of winning without conceding a goal although they might have to be patient for a breakthrough.

United are averaging three goals per home game, although 4-0 hammerings of Crystal Palace, Everton and West Ham have skewed the data for a defensive side who might struggle to overcome stubborn opponents.
