Manchester United hosts Newcastle United on Monday as both teams kick off their 2010-2011 campaigns. Kick off is at 3:00 PM EST at Old Trafford. After finishing second to Chelsea by only one point last season, the Red Devils are once again a favorite for the championship. Wayne Rooney will be looking to build off of the best season of his career, and the Newcastle defense does not have enough to prevent Rooney from picking up where he left off at the end of last season. Along with returning most of the first team from 2009-2010, Manchester will also depend on several strong off-season acquisitions. In addition to the already established offense, the addition of young players like Mexican striker Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez will improve what was already one of the most devastating attacks in the Premiership.
