MUN Vs NEW Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Fulham’s win piles colossal pressure on Newcastle United’s shoulders.

Inconsistency has been Newcastle United’s biggest bereavement this season. Just when the club looks to have finally hit its stride, the club stumbles to a defeat to negate all the good work it had done previously.

Defeated 2-0 by Chelsea the last time around, the club alluded towards the aforementioned narrative. With three defeats in their last five matches, the club now finds itself precariously close to the relegation zone.

And with Fulham defeating Sheffield United 1-0 on Saturday, only a paltry three points see Newcastle United stave off the dreaded bottom three spots at the moment.

MUN Vs NEW Fantasy Probable Winner

Devoid of the services of their top scorer, we just don’t envision Newcastle United offering anything up the park. The club will be listless in attack to tumble to another defeat.

Top Goal Scorer

Manchester United

  • Bruno: 14 Goals, 9 Assists

Newcastle United

  • Wilson: 10 Goals, 4 Assists


Had it gone been for Karl Darlow, Newcastle United would have ended up finding themselves engulfed in the relegation zone.


Bereft of Wilson who has played a direct hand in 15 of the 25 goals his side has scored this season, we don’t envisage Newcastle United scoring today. This should be a second match on the spin without a goal for them to see us rein in Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Luke Shaw and Victor Lindelof in our ranks.


Scoring his side’s only goal against West Brom, one which ensured the side was able to scrounge a draw for itself, Bruno Fernandes as ever becomes a must have pick for us.

He’s joined by Fred, a player who has done the dirty work exceptionally well for the club. The opposition on the other hand will see both Jonjo Shelvey and Isaac Hayden be inducted in our ranks, players who can disrupt attacking plays with ease.

The enterprising Miguel Almiron with the four goals completes the set of picks from the club.


Our team for the day is completed by Marcus Rashford who has helped himself to the 8 goals and 6 assists this season.

Captain And Vice-Captain

14 goal and 9 assist man Bruno is our captain while Rashford is the vice-captain.

Fantasy Team

Darlow, Harry, Aaron, Luke, Victor, Bruno, Fred, Almiron, Jonjo, Hayden, Marcus
