The stats behind our Newcastle United vs Sheffield United predictions:

  • Only one team has scored in six of the seven previous matches between Newcastle and Sheffield United.
  • Newcastle have won four of their last five meetings against Sheffield United (three by a margin of two or more goals).
  • Alexander Isak has opened the scoring in Newcastle’s last four Premier League home games.

Is it all over?

If Sheffield United lose this weekend then their relegation back to the Championship will be confirmed.

It has been a tough campaign for the Blades, picking up just 16 points, winning just three times and conceding 92 goals — the most by any side in a single 38-game season in Premier League history. Away from home, they have picked up just six points, with a 3-1 win over fellow newcomers Luton their only victory on the road, having tasted 13 defeats.

Having lost seven of the last eight fixtures against Newcastle, including the reverse fixture which finished 8-0, they won’t be confident of anything changing at St. James’ Park.

Newcastle are currently unbeaten in each of their last six home league games (W3 D3) and have never lost in any of their eight Premier League home games against promoted sides under Eddie Howe (W3 D5).

Newcastle United vs Sheffield United match tip

Over 2.5 goals @ 4/9 with BetGoodwin

Eight of the last nine Premier League matches at St. James’ Park have seen over 2.5 goals scored in them, while Eddie Howe’s side ran out 8-0 winners in the reverse fixture, their biggest-ever away win in the competition. Newcastle have scored in all 17 of their Premier League home games this season, with their 43 goals in total their most at St James’ Park in a top-flight campaign since 1996-97 (54).

Newcastle are unbeaten in their last six at home, while Sheffield United have failed to win any of their last 10 Premier League matches, so it’s no surprise that Eddie Howe’s men are huge odds-on favourites.
