Match Preview

It hasn’t been the most straightforward start to the new season for Newcastle United, but they finally got back on track with a home victory against Brentford last weekend. The win ended a three-game losing sequence in the Premier League, and it was followed up with a creditable 0-0 draw at the San Siro against AC Milan in the Champions League.

The Magpies have been excellent across their matches against newly promoted rivals, as they have gone 14 without a defeat since a 2-1 home loss against Leeds United in January 2021. However, Newcastle have lost both of their away games this season, which is just one fewer than they managed in the entirety of the previous campaign.

Sheffield United were desperately unlucky not to open their account for the season last weekend, as they were edged out by Tottenham Hotspur in the closing stages. There is a growing sense that a first league win of the season is edging closer. They have picked up just one point from their opening five matches this term, but they have dropped five points from goals conceded in the 88th minute or later.

Draws have been a very uncommon result in Premier League meetings between these sides, as none of the last eight have ended level. The Blades have picked up three wins over that period, with two of their victories coming at Bramall Lane. Their most recent win was a 1-0 success in January 2021.


Sheffield United vs Newcastle Prediction

Something still feels off at Newcastle this season, and their recent performances have shown limitations in the final third. Sheffield United were desperately unlucky against Spurs last weekend, and they could avenge that defeat by landing a first victory of the season this weekend.
