Sheffield Utd Prediction – Can Sheffield United hit the maximum?

Despite putting together a solid unbeaten run of 7 matches overall in the Premier League, Sheffield United have actually dropped down to 8th place on the top flight ladder which is due to Chris Wilder’s side being involved in too many draws which has slowed down their progress.

Nevertheless, The Blades continue to be the success story so far in this season’s Premier League season as the newly promoted side from the Championship occupy the highest place in the division out of the three teams that were promoted from the second tier at the end of last season.

Sheffield United have claimed wins against Arsenal and Burnley within this 7-match stubborn unbeaten sequence but have also been involved in no fewer than 5 draws too, while 7 of their total of 14 matches played to date this term have ended in stalemate.

A home record of 3-1-3 9/7 is actually worse than their away record as The Blades have lost on 3 occasions already at Bramall Lane, but they do bring a 3-match unbeaten run into this clash, which includes winning 2 of these last 3 as well.

Newcastle Utd Prediction – Can Newcastle improve on their travels?

The Magpies head to Sheffield on the back of losing just 1 of their last 5 matches overall in the Premier League which was a 2-0 defeat away at Aston Villa but have registered recent wins against West Ham 3-2 away from home and a 2-1 home win over Bournemouth as well as draws with Wolves and Manchester City.

Newcastle United have been poor away from home though as the visitors have lost 4 of their last 5 matches on their travels having suffered defeats at Liverpool, Leicester City, Chelsea and Aston Villa, while grabbing a 3-2 win at West Ham.

With just 4 wins out of their last 18 matches away from home, Newcastle United look to be up against it when they make their way to Bramall Lane which includes just 3 clean sheets on their travels, so Steve Bruce’s side will do well to escape with a point here I fancy.

10 of Newcastle’s 18 away matches have also seen the visitors concede 2 goals or more on the road in the top flight, so this could be a tough trip for The Magpies here.


Key-Facts – Sheffield Utd vs Newcastle Utd

  • Sheffield Utd are unbeaten in their last 7 matches overall in the EPL
  • Sheffield Utd have won 2 of their last 3 matches at home in the EPL
  • Newcastle United have lost 4 of their last 5 matches on their travels


Betting Tips Verdict

Sheffield United with home advantage should at least grab a point here but use the handicap on the hosts in this one.
