Sheffield Utd vs. Newcastle’s Preview: Predictions, Channel To Watch | 24th September 2023

Sheffield United learned the harsh realities of football in their last match, losing 2-1 away to Tottenham after conceding two goals beyond the 97th minute.

This defeat keeps the Blades without a win in the Premier League (PL) after five games, just like their start in the 2020/21 season, which led to them finishing at the bottom of the table.

Boss Paul Heckingbottom’s main goal this season is to avoid relegation. However, his team’s slow start has led to reports suggesting that the club might sack him soon.

Despite this, his squad has rallied behind him. Returning to Bramall Lane could bring them their first win if they can replicate their form from last season when they lost only four times in 23 Championship matches at home, winning 16 and drawing 3.

Newcastle United, on the other hand, recently ended their 20-year absence from the Champions League by holding Italian giants AC Milan to a 0-0 draw in Group F.

This draw marked their first positive result on the road this season, as their previous two Premier League away matches ended in defeat. They need to improve this form if they aim for another top-four finish, considering they only lost three times away from home last season in the PL, win 8 and draw 8.

Despite fatigue setting in, manager Eddie Howe was impressed with his team’s “good second-half display” in Milan and believes the players will take pride in their result and performance. The Magpies can also draw inspiration from their recent head-to-head record against Sheffield United. Eddie Howe’s side has won six of their last seven league meetings with the Blades, with four of those victories accompanied by a clean sheet.

Player to watch out for during Sheffield United vs Newcastle

Key players to watch include Sheffield United’s Gustavo Hamer, who scored in the last match, doubling his PL tally for the season. Both of his goals came after halftime in 2-1 losses.

Similarly, Callum Wilson has scored three PL goals this season, all of which came after the break, and he also scored in two of his five prior head-to-head matches.

Head-to-Head

Newcastle has remained unbeaten in their last 14 PL matches against newly promoted sides, with 7 wins and 7 draws.
