Match Preview

Sheffield United meet Newcastle United for the first time in the Premier League (PL) since April 2007. They enter this game unbeaten in seven, although that does include five draws. Notably, three of those draws saw them come from behind at some point during the game to help secure a point.
After three straight PL home defeats, the ‘Blades’ have since become harder to beat at Bramall Lane and are undefeated in three (W2, D1). They are still to see a goal in the opening 15 minutes of their PL home encounters, and have conceded just one first-half goal at home so far.
Newcastle have lost just once in five games, and twice came from behind at the weekend to draw with defending PL champions Manchester City. Three of their last four games have now featured over 2.5 goals, whilst each of their four PL wins this season came by a one-goal margin.
The visitors do have away wins at Tottenham and West Ham to their name, but also five defeats, although that includes losses at high-flying Liverpool, Leicester, and Chelsea. They’ve failed to score in three of their last four away, and they’ve only netted one away league goal between minutes 31 and 80.
Players to watchLys Mousset (SFU) has five goals in 11 PL appearances since joining from Bournemouth, with whom he only managed three goals from 58 games.
Of Newcastle’s goals this PL season, 61.54% have been scored by defenders. Centre-back Ciaran Clark has netted in each of their last two PL wins.
Stat attack: Four of Newcastle’s last five PL games featured both teams scoring.
In Sheffield United’s last 27 competitive home games, only nine saw both teams score (33.33%).
No Sheffield United home game has ended 0-0 since November 2018, whilst the last Newcastle away game to finish goalless was October 2018.
