EPL: NUFC vs Blades

At the Sport Direct Arena, Newcastle United is looking for a flourish to welcome rookie horse Sheffield United who is flourishing in the first group in the round match of 30. Can The Blades be unbeaten in the 5th round in a row to continue the battle for tickets to the European Cup. Or Chèo will cause the opponent to hate the same in the first leg and continue to approach the early milestones.

Steve Bruce seems to like Dwight Gayle and Miguel Almiron in attack with Joelinton kicking and can persevere with that system. Isaac Hayden and Jonjo Shelvey are putting Sean Longstaff and Nabil Bentaleb on the bench at the moment for the battle for midfield. Goalkeeper Martin Dubravka took a break until next month with a knee injury, with Karl Darlow taking over. Newcastle have kept clean sheets in the last 3 home games (Premier League) and less than 2.5 goals scored in the last 3 home games of Newcastle (Premier League). Newcastle have scored at least 2 goals in the last 3 matches against Sheff Utd in all competitions and are unbeaten in all 5 recent matches against opponents.

Enda Stevens, just back from injury, came off the bench against Norwich last weekend with a calf problem so Ben Osborn will make his new club debut on the left flank. Oliver McBurnie is also a suspect for the visitors after the previous round injury, Billy Sharp has scored 3 goals in the last 4 appearances and deserves to start from the start, with McBurnie a doubt, David McGoldrick or Lys Mousset will partner with Sharp on attack. The only other doubt in the team was in the middle with the case of rookie Sander Berge and John Lundstram. Has had less than 2.5 goals scored in 11 of Sheff Utd's recent 12 matches (Premier League). Sheffield United are on the way to qualify for the European Cup next season, only 5 points behind the top 4. The Blade has won 3 in the last 4 rounds, it's been a decade since Sheffield United last played at St. James Park. They lost 0-2 at home to Newcastle at the beginning of the season and lost in the last 4 meetings between the two teams. There have been fewer than 2.5 goals in 11 of Sheffield United's 13 away games this season.
