Newcastle United are away at Manchester United on Saturday evening and remarkably this may be the best time to travel to Old Trafford in search of a win.
There is a lot of turmoil around Jose Mourinho’s position at the club right now and Man United are without a win in their last four games across all competitions.
The Magpies need to try exploit that tense atmosphere and capitalise on a shaky Man United side that are under immense pressure.
Rafael Benitez’s side are still searching for their first win of the Premier League season and would love to move out of the relegation places before the international break.
Newcastle are going to need someone to snatch them a goal on the counter and it could be the opportunity for Joselu to become a hero.
Joselu was unable to pull up any trees during his first year at St James’ Park last season and is considered a flop by most supporters, as he managed a return of just four goals.
But he’s their top scorer this campaign with two goals already and could be the most likely to snatch a goal on the counter attack at Old Trafford.
The 28-year-old is a strong threat in the air and a match-winning display at Man United is exactly the type of performance that could turn his Newcastle career around.
Benitez has been left with a distinct lack of quality options in his squad, especially in attack, but needs to continue making the most of what he’s got right now.
