Newcastle United, after two good runs on the bounce in the Premier League and the Champions League, will travel to South Yorkshire for the fixture Sheffield United vs Newcastle. It’s the first time the two sides have met since the 2020-2021 season, where both sides won their respective home games.

On paper, Newcastle United are the favourites in this match. They face a depleted Sheffield United side who have picked up just one point all season.

Although, this is the Premier League and the Blades looked good against Spurs in their most recent match. Never write out the home team, particularly when they have a point to prove.

As for Eddie Howe, he’ll expect nothing less than three points from his men. After returning to winning ways last weekend against Brentford, it’s absolutely essential he continues on that path.

Newcastle injury news

There has been no advancement with the Joe Willock injury. Also, annoyingly for Eddie Howe there’s not been an update on the Joelinton injury either. As reported by The Northern Echo, both midfielders will be out of action in this away fixture.

As per Fotmob, Javier Manquillo and Emil Krafth are injured too so they are “doubtful” – Although, they were unlikely to start anyway.

Sheffield United injury news

Thankfully for Newcastle, Sheffield United will be without Oliver McBurnie, as he was sent off in their recent match against Spurs so he is serving his suspension.

As per FotMob, Rhys Norrington-Davies is back in training, so it’s a race against time for him. Rhian Brewster, Max Lowe, William Osula, George Baldock and John Fleck are all ruled out for this game.
