There have been 167 previous competitive meetings between the two clubs, stretching back to the very first, contested in the old Second Division way back in 1895. The Reds have won 86 to Newcastle's 42, while there have been 39 draws. The 2019/20 season will see us reach the milestone of 50 meetings with the Magpies during the Premier League era. The total currently stands at 48, of which the Reds have won 28, drawn 14 and lost six. We also have a good recent record on Tyneside, winning four of the last six matches we've played at St James’ Park. In the Premier League, United have won 13 of 24 matches at Newcastle, drawing six and losing just five. Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Reds once again came away from the north-east with all three points last season, when Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford were both on target after the interval to earn us to a 2-0 victory in January.
The Magpies endured a tough start to 2018/19, failing to win any of their first 10 league games and losing 3-1 at Championship side Nottingham Forest in the second round of the Carabao Cup. But, despite being tipped by many to suffer relegation, Rafael Benitez masterminded an upturn in form during the latter half of the season, which included an outstanding 2-1 home victory over champions Manchester City at the end of January. A strong end to the campaign meant the Tyneside club lost just one of their last five Premier League games and finished in the healthy position of 13th. In the Emirates FA Cup, Newcastle needed a replay and extra-time to see off Championship side Blackburn Rovers in the third round, before going out in round four to eventual finalists Watford following a 2-0 home defeat.
