Newcastle vs Sheffield United Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
Newcastle look safe from relegation in 13th place at the time of writing. Sheffield United are just one point from fifth with everyone having played 29 games.
Newcastle United FC Form
Newcastle had lost just two of the last eight before lockdown. During that period they amassed two wins and four draws to take them clear of the drop zone.
Their record against top-half teams has been relatively solid, picking up wins against the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United, Tottenham and their weekend opponents, Sheffield United.
Across the season, Newcastle have the joint-worst offensive record in the league. The Magpies have scored 25 goals in 29 league games, level with bottom side Norwich.
Jetro Willems is ruled out through injury whilst Sean and Matty Longstaff are both carrying knocks.
Sheffield United Form
Sheffield United got off to a solid start against Aston Villa and can count themselves extremely unlucky not to have taken all three points. They should have taken the lead but for an incorrect goal-line tech decision.
The draw extends their unbeaten league run to five games and takes them one step closer to European qualification. Incredibly, Sheffield United have only lost twice to side outside the current top three.
One of those defeats was a 2-0 loss to Newcastle in their reverse fixture back in December. The game is the only time the Blades have conceded more than one goal against a team currently below them in the league.
