Manchester United and Newcastle United games are one of the few fixtures in the Premier League that gurantee goals. The last three meetings between the sides have produced 13 alone while over the years there has been some fantastic moments for both fans, not to mention neutrals to enjoy.
Who can forget Newcastle’s famous 5-0 win back in 1996 or the Paul Scholes inspired 6-2 success in 2003. This month last year the two club’s produced their latest thriller when a Javier Hernandez goal at the death sealed a 4-3 win for the Red Devils.
Saturday’s game promised to be a cracker especially with both sides keen to bounce back from surprise midweek defeats.
There is not a lot that can enhance you viewing pleasure this Saturday morning although the chance to win a copy of Football Manager 2014 might tempt you. Fantasy5live.com, run by regular SportsNewsIreland contributor, Trevor Keane, is giving people the chance to play single game fantasy football.
No long season’s here just fantasy football over 90 minutes.
Just log on, pick the five players you think will have the biggest impact on the game (think goals). There is no restrictions (you can have five forwards, five defenders even five players from the one time) the only constant being the number 5.
A tempting offer can always be sweetened and fantasy5live are ready to do that by pledging to give 50c to the Jack and Jill Foundation, a charity aimed at Children, for every new person that plays the game this December. What are you waiting for.
