MU has indeed decreased its performance in its last five matches, because they only won once when they hit Southampton with a score of 9-0. So naturally, they are now having trouble catching Manchester City at the top of the standings.
MU, which has 46 points, is now 10 points behind Manchester City, which seems difficult to stop this season. So that, MU just has to get up and as much as possible not lose points again.
The duel against Newcastle at Old Trafford, Monday (22/2/2021) in the morning WIB, is the momentum for MU to step on the gas again. As long as MU has a good record when they meet The Magpies, three points do not seem difficult to achieve.
