Newport are playing solidly in League Two this season. They are 14th on the table but only six points behind the playoff spot, so everything could change for Graham Coughlan's team if they continue playing well. Newport have not lost in the last seven matches in all competitions. In the previous game, they won 1-0 at home against Wrexham. Guests were favorites to win, but the home side limited Wrexham to only four shots on the goal. On the other hand, Newport didn't dominate, but they did enough to take all three points. 

Manchester United are underwhelming this season. They expected to, at least, fight for the Champions League spot, but instead of that, Manchester United seems like only a mid-table team. Erik ten Hag's team won only two of the last eight matches in all competitions. In the previous game, Manchester United played 2-2 at home against Tottenham. Although Manchester United were favorites to win, they surprisingly had only 36% ball possession and nine shots, ten Hag's team found the way to take one point. Manchester United didn't play well recently, but in the upcoming FA Cup versus Newport, they will have a chance to regain some confidence if they beat the League Two team. 

Newport vs Manchester United pick: Under 3.5 goals

Newport allowed only four goals in the last six matches. On the other hand, Manchester United scored only three goals in the previous five road games. Under 3.5 goals should be the best bet for this tie.

Newport team news

The game against Manchester United will be one of the biggest in Newport club's history. Newport's Rodney Parade is set to be full. Thousands of fans were waiting for Thursday morning for the office to open so they could buy a valuable piece of paper that would allow lucky ones to witness history. 

In the previous Newport match, defender Matthew Baker returned to the pitch after an injury. He came in as a substitution in the 75th minute and will be another option for a start on Sunday afternoon. Baker appeared in 15 league games this season and will be a tremendous addition if he is fit enough to play from the beginning. Also, Kyle Jameson, Offrande Zanzale, and Declan Drysdale are questionable to play in a versus Manchester United.
