Sheffield Utd – Newcastle: Match preview
Before the start of the season, the Sheffield team was considered as one of the top relegation candidates. But at the moment, after 15 games played, this team is in a fantastic eighth position and will continue to fight for Europe if they continue like this. Newcastle is in the 14th position, but everything can change for them in a game or two.
Sheffield United team news:
Much like Wolverhampton last season, Sheffield plays this season as long-time first-teamers. Under the leadership of the brilliant Wilder, the Yorkshire team has been playing relentlessly and disciplined since August, moving as one unit across the field. This is a key factor in the success of this team.
They have suffered only three defeats – all three at home – less defeats than Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United is a testament to the strong tactical foundation on which this squad is being built. No one will surely count on the points against this team this season.
Probable lineup: Henderson; O’Connell, Basham, Egan; Baldock, Fleck, Lundstram, Norwood, Stevens; McGoldrick, Mousset.
Newcastle United team news:
As could be seen last weekend in a 2-2 draw with Manchester City, during which the Crows returned twice from a deficit, this is a team that can play with serious intensity and organization only if it is their day.
But there is another face to the team, such as the recent 2-0 defeat by Aston Villa or a firecracker against Leicester City in August, when Bruce’s squad may look pretty headless and out of the question.
Probable lineup: Dubravka; Manquillo, Fernandez, Clark, Dummett, Willems; Almiron, Hayden, Shelvey, Atsu; Joelinton.
The Sheffield squad has been unaware of the defeat for seven games, and when they remained undefeated to home the field against United and Arsenal, they should do the same against Newcastle. The Steve Bruce team lacks the capacity and quality to handle a very disciplined and quality team like Sheffield.
