Man Utd v Newcastle United: Old Trafford will play host to a crucial match in the race for European qualification.

Newcastle United face Manchester United at Old Trafford tonight in a game that could have huge implications on who is playing European football next season. The Magpies are currently in the driving seat, however, any dropped points would open the door for either Chelsea or the Red Devils to swoop.

However, such is the closeness of the race, a win for Newcastle tonight would ensure their opponents cannot finish higher than 8th in the table and guarantee the Magpies at least a 7th place finish - one that would net them European football in some guise next season if Manchester City go on to lift the FA Cup.
