Sheffield United Form

Sheffield United have endured a miserable season thus far but finally have a positive result to springboard from.

The Blades are currently bottom of the Premier League and have lost each of their last three league matches since their last point, picked up in a 1-1 draw with Brighton. Sheffield United have since lost to Everton, Burnley and Crystal Palace.

They finally picked up their first win of the season last time out, making hard work of their 3-2 win over League One side Bristol Rovers in the FA Cup.

Newcastle Form

Newcastle fans will be starting to worry about their team’s prospects this season following a difficult month. The Magpies have failed to register a win in their last seven matches and have been eliminated from two domestic cup competitions during that time.

They were first knocked out of the League Cup by Brentford before defeats to Manchester City and Leicester, which came either side of a 0-0 draw at home to Liverpool.

Newcastle then fell at the first hurdle in the FA Cup, losing 2-0 to Arsenal away from home. Steve Bruce’s team took the Gunners to extra time before Emile Smith-Rowe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sent holders Arsenal through.

Team News

Sheffield United’s injury list features George Baldock, Enda Stevens, Jack Robinson, Oliver McBurnie, Oliver Burke, Sander Berge and Jack O'Connell.

Newcastle will be without Jamal Lewis, Ryan Fraser and Allan Saint-Maximin.

Head to Head

Sheffield United have the slight edge in this fixture with 49 wins to Newcastle’s 48. There have also been 29 draws played out.

The most recent meeting ended in a 3-0 Newcastle win.


Both teams are really out of form of late, leading me to favour a draw in this match.

  • Sheffield United have lost 7 of their last 8 home matches (English Premier League).
  • Sheffield United have 2 draws and 15 defeats this season (English Premier League).
  • Sheffield United ended a 21-match wait for a win last time out (all competitions).
  • Newcastle are winless in their last 7 matches (all competitions).
  • Newcastle have scored 1 goal in their last 5 matches (all competitions).
  • Newcastle have lost their last 4 away matches (all competitions).
