Sheffield United News and Form – Can the Blades sink Newcastle?

The Blades moved their unbeaten run of form in the Premier League out to seven with a 1-1 draw at Wolves on the weekend. United had taken the lead in the fixture but couldn’t hold out. That was their third straight draw in the top flight having taken ones against Spurs and Manchester United. So they are more than holding their own and they will see this as a great chance at three points. At Bramall Lane Sheffield United are W3 D1 L3 this season and are unbeaten in three there.

Draw/Sheff Utd HT/FT

Mr Green

Sheffield United have scored exactly three goals in each of their last two home games. It is a six-match scoring streak in the top flight that they are on, home and away combined. Each of the three homes wins that they have recorded have been with a clean sheet. Their defensive strengths have been such a big feature of their campaign. It’s been a clean sheet in a third of their league games this season. Only Liverpool and Leicester Have better defensive records than the Blades. That alone should push them close to success against the Magpies.

Newcastle News and Form – Can Newclatse deliver at Bramall Lane?

A point against Manchester City on the weekend, thanks to a late strike by Jonjo Shelvey was a massive bonus for the Magpies. It has been just one defeat in their last five league outings now (W2 D2) so they are starting to get things together. However, in their last away game, they were dreadful, suffering a 2-0 loss at Aston Villa. Newcastle have lost five of their seven road fixtures this season and their defence has been all over the place in them.

Newcastle have averaged over two goals per away game against this season. They have mustered up only the six goals in their seven road games. Four of the five away losses which they have suffered have been b a margin of at least two goals. Plus Newcastle have been trailing at half time in four of their seven road games. So they are completely up and down but just now and again seem to be able to pull a good performance out of the draw. They are without a clean sheet in their last six leagues however and could easily be out-worked by the Blades.
