United Predictions v Newcastle: The winner is...

Tuesday 14 September 2021 12:00

For the fourth consecutive match, a record number of fans made United Predictions as the game within our official app continues to grow in popularity.

The premise is simple: tell us your starting XI, formation, first goalscorer, correct score and Man of the Match for the chance to win some top prizes this campaign.

A signed shirt goes to the fan who earns the most points from each fixture and, so far, we've posted them out to three supporters:

Juan Cardenas from Colombia (v Leeds)
Theophilus Asamoah Gyapong from Ghana (v Southampton)
Natnael Fitsum from Eritrea (v Wolves)

Without further ado, it gives us great pleasure to crown Shin Hoang from Australia as our latest United Predictions champion. 

At just nine years old, the young Red performed amazingly by registering a perfect score of 125 points - which means he correctly named the starting XI, formation, Cristiano Ronaldo as our first scorer, a 4-1 win and CR7 as Man of the Match.
