Sheffield United are backed to continue their strong start to the season when they host Newcastle in a Premier fixture at Bramall Lane. The Blades have performed above expectations this term and should see off Newcastle who are poor on the road.

Sheffield United Form

Sheffield United earned a 1-1 draw at Wolves on Saturday with Lys Mousset’s early opener cancelled out by the hosts. The Blades are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League matches and are slowly establishing themselves as a proper to 10 team. 

They are a force to be reckoned with at home with victories over Arsenal and Burnley among their recent results at Bramall Lane.

Lys Mousset continues to prove his value to Chris Wilder’s men with his fifth goal of the season in Wolverhampton. The backline had also impressed with Chris Basham, John Egan and Jack O’Connell catching the eye.

Sheffield United News

Sheffield United have no new injuries or suspensions and are not expected to make sweeping changes to the team. John Egan should continue in the heart of the defence after returning from a calf problem to play the full 90 minutes at Molineux.

Newcastle Form

Newcastle are coming off a 2-2 draw against champions Manchester City. They fought back from behind twice with goals from Jethro Willems and Jonjo Shelvey earning them a share of the spoils.

The Magpies will hope to build on the result against Manchester City but their away form has left a lot to be desired this season. They have lost four of their last five away matches and have already been beaten by the other newly promoted teams, losing 3-1 at Norwich before falling 2-0 against Aston Villa.

Newcastle News

Manager Steve Bruce will be without a number of key players with captain Jamaal Lascelles, DeAndre Yedlin and Matt Ritchie all ruled out with injury. Defender Fabian Schar is back in after making the bench on Saturday after recovering from a knee problem.

Sheffield United vs Newcastle Head to Head

Sheffield United have a 34-33 edge with 22 draws from 89 previous matches against Newcastle United. The most recent meeting between both teams was a friendly at Bramall lane in 2015 which ended 2-2. Kieran Freeman and Marc McNulty got the goals for the Blades while Siem de Jong and Georginio Wijnaldum were on target for the Magpies.
