Sheffield United (Home)
The newcomer status did not stop the home team from displaying impressive form even in the presence of Premier League giants. They successfully climbed within the top 10, currently sitting on the 7th place of the table in 14 games. The Blades have collected 19 points from winning 4, losing 3 and drawing 7 of 14 games in the league so far this season, scored 17 goals and conceded to 13 which is the 3rd best defense in the league so far as they have also kept 5 clean sheets in those matches. They are unbeaten in their last 7 games across all competitions, won 2 and drawn 5 since losing to the current leaders Liverpool 0-1 at home, scored only 1 goal in 4 of those recent matches. Back at home, Chris Wilder’s men have recorded a back-to-back win against Burnley 3-0 and Arsenal 1-0, while they have shared spoils with Manchester United 3-3 in their last home game since losing to 3 straight home games across all competitions.
Newcastle United (Away)
The visitors surprisingly held the reigning champions Manchester City from bagging all 3 points last time as they shared spoils 2-2 at home courtesy of Jetro Williems and Jonjo Shelvey. Steve Bruce’s men came from a lost against Aston Villa 2-0 that broke their 3 games unbeaten run that saved them from falling to the danger zone. They now sit on the 14th place of the league table with 16 points from winning 4 of 13 games so far this season, lost 6 and drawn 4. The Magpies have won only 1 of the last 5 games across all competitions, lost the other 4 where they have failed to score in 3.
This only time these two sides have met in the span of 10 years was in 2010 for a Championship game there Newcastle won 2-1
