Sheffield United vs Newcastle at Bramall Lane is a game that The Magpies should win. Before the kickoff, here are the things you need to know about the game.
Newcastle United finally ended their losing streak of three consecutive matches when they beat Brentford 1-0 at home at St. James’ Park. It was certainly an important game for the Magpies to win because, after their unthinkable performance in last year’s Premier League campaign under Eddie Howe, all eyes were on Tyneside to see whether they can replicate their magic of the last campaign. Things surely didn’t start the way the Geordies expected by losing three of their first 5 games of the season. Now, when they will face the newly promoted Sheffield United, the Magpies are expected to come out on top. Here are some things you need to keep in mind before the Magpies take on the Blades.
Sheffield United vs Newcastle: No draw in the last 8 games
Sheffield United and Newcastle United faced each other 8 times during the Premier League era and none of those games have ended in a draw. Newcastle won 5 out of those 8 games. In the three matches that Sheffield United won, two of those victories came at home and their last victory was in 2021 at Bramall Lane.
Newcastle United looking to rectify their away record this season
Newcastle’s away record last season was amazing. They lost only three games away last season. However, this season, they have already lost twice on the road. So, at Bramall Lane, the Magpies will be looking to get their away form back on track.
6 wins out of 7 games for the Magpies vs the Blades
Newcastle have had an upper hand whenever they faced Sheffield United in recent times winning the last 6 games out of 7 that they played against the Blades. The last time the Magpies lost against the Blades was in 2021 when they lost 1-0 at Bramall Lane.
