The final match of this weekend sees a battle between Newcastle United and Manchester United at St James’s Park.

Both sides are under pressure after poor starts to the season. United start the day in 11th place, while the Magpies are in the relegation zone. The desperation for a win will be clear to see.

The match kicks off at 4.30pm and it is live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League. Here are the factz you need to know:

* Manchester United did the double over Newcastle last season: winning 0-2 at St James’s Park and 3-2 at Old Trafford.
* Newcastle are traditionally slow starters – they had 5 points after 11 matches last season. They have that total now.
* Manchester United’s 9 points from 7 matches is their worst start to a season since 1989.
* Don’t expect a goal-fest: only 3 goals have been scored at St James’s Park so far this season.
* Manchester United haven’t won on the road in their last 7 fixtures – their worst run in 30 years.
