Team News

Sheff Utd
Newcastle
  • Sheffield United could be without as many as 12 players for Sunday's match against Newcastle, though the majority of sidelined players are only days away from returning to fitness.
  • Oliver McBurnie will miss this one after being sent off in last weekend's loss at Tottenham.
  • Newcastle will be without Joelinton for this clash; the Brazilian faces a spell on the sidelines with a knee injury.
  • Emil Krafth, Joe Willock and Javier Manquillo are edging closer to returns from injury.

Prediction

  • Sheffield United dropped all three points at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last weekend deep into stoppage time, with Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski scoring after 98 and 100 minutes respectively.
  • The Blades remain on just one point and are yet to pick up a win on their return to the top-flight. They sit 17th heading into this one.
  • Newcastle got back to winning ways at home to Brentford last time out, after three successive Premier League defeats.
  • Eddie Howe's side are now up to 12th, on six points.
  • The last time the sides met, two seasons ago, Sheffield United came out on top in this fixture with a 1-0 victory.
  • On this occasion, however, the away side should have far too much quality and seal all three points.

  • Last season Bournemouth lost 9-0 to Liverpool and they managed to stay in the EPL.

  • I think Sheffield's players should refund the cost for the tickets towards his fans, after such catastrophic asbsolutely dissapointing perfomance. I've heard tickets cost are so expensive and also there were some teams who punished his players in that way before.

  • 0-8 LMAO !

  • Oliver McBurnie suspension is a huge loss for Sheff Utd.

  • Hoping for an upset 1-1

  • tricky odds, 1-1 worth try

  • Smelling an upset from last match's motivating run, Sheffield gonna be an uphill, predicting a 1-1

  • Over 4.5 goals

  • @buthethi 2 more goals to go

  • Newcastle needs to win to get their season going...for Howe's sake...a draw or loss will be terrible prep to meet Pep next...

  • 1-1

  • NU win
