Sheffield United will be looking for a first league victory of the campaign when they host a Newcastle United side hoping for a third consecutive clean sheet.  
 
Newcastle returned from the international break to beat Brentford in a game that wasn’t particularly inspiring and followed it up with a goalless draw in Milan during their UEFA Champions League exertions, hardly the best preparation and their performance wasn’t fantastic either.  
 
That gives Sheffield United a big opportunity to get a morale-boosting first win having drawn with Everton and lost four other matches by a single goal – and usually a late one too. Paul Heckingbottom has been able to select what is arguably their strongest XI and he will hope results can followed.  
 
There is plenty to get stuck into from a bet building perspective and we’ve done the work so you don’t have to – read on below for Sheff Utd vs Newcastle bet builder tips ahead of a fascinating Sunday afternoon clash.

Sheffield United vs Newcastle United Predicted Lineups

No Mcburnie should force change 

Paul Heckingbottom is likely to make just one change for their clash against Newcastle, an enforced one after the late red to Oli McBurnie, something the Scottish striker vented about on social media. With the function of the team working so well against Spurs until a late rally, it’s likely that he will be directly replacd up top with youngster Berne Traore next in line.

Newcastle could freshen up from midweek

Eddie Howe doesn’t want to overload his squad amid new territory and made a few changes in midweek, Harvey Barnes and Callum Wilson amongst those dropped. The pair could return this weekend to give the side a fresher look, especially the latter given the impact he has had so far this campaign. Elsewhere, there is unlikely to be change in midfield with Joelinton and Joe Willock remaining absent.

Sheffield United vs Newcastle United TEAM STATS 

Heckingbottom’s Blades are blunt

There aren’t many redeeming features about Sheffield United’s campaign to date. They have the second lowest xG and 2nd highest xGA. They have taken the fewest shots per game and conceded the most, while also conceding the most shots on target. They have conceded five or more corners in every league game and collected three or more yellow cards in four of their five league matches. They sit third for most fouls. The numbers aren’t good.

Newcastle love a card

Eddie Howe’s Magpies are relatively mid-table as far as the shot count goes but it’s worth noting that they managed 20 of their shots on target in two matches while having four in the other three. It’s cards that are seemingly guaranteed – they have picked up three or more yellow cards in four of their five league matches and drawn two or more in four of five. They are second in the league for most fouls committed and top for most fouls drawn.

Sheffield United vs Newcastle United SHOTS AND SHOTS ON TARGET stats

Midfield mayhem best hope for blades

Sheffield United need some attacking intent and their best route to finding that could be from their midfield. Gustavo Hamer is a livewire midfielder who has taken five shots in his four appearances, managing three efforts on target. It’s a continuation of his record in the second tier where he took between 1.79 and 2.56 shots per 90. James McAtee is the other option, the Man City youngster managing two shots in his first appearance having averaged around that last season.

Wilson not letting his spot go without a fight

Callum Wilson has only started one league game this season but he made a decent impression in that, scoring a penalty kick while also having two shots at goal in open play. In 190 minutes of football, he has had nine shots and five on target. Harvey Barnes is another player to have started just one game but he is making a decent impression, having six shots in 176 minutes of football. He has averaged more than a shot on target in his last four Premier League seasons.

Sheffield United vs Newcastle United GOALS AND ASSISTS stats

Hamer the main man  

As discussed, Sheffield United have had issues scoring goals. Thankfully, they have Gustavo Hamer. He scored 11 and assisted nine during his final season with Coventry City and now has two goals in four Premier League starts. If the Blades are going to start firing, they will need Cameron Archer to step up – the England U21 Euro Championship winner scored on debut against Everton.

Newcastle forwards are finding the net 

Despite not quite hitting the heights yet, Newcastle’s forwards are scoring goals. Callum Wilson has three to his name. Alexander Isak has two while Anthony Gordon and Harvey Barnes have a goal and an assist apiece – this group are clearly ruthless given the opportunity. Wilson is the man to focus on if you want a goalscorer, the England man netting in his only league start this season having scored 18 last term.

 No norwood, no posession

Oli Norwood was always the reliable one for Sheffield United but he has stepped out of the starting XI to make way for Oli McBurnie and a raft of new signings. Quite who takes the baton remains to be seen but Gustavo Hamer is appearing next on the list with 36.4 attempted passes per 90. If anybody is going to win you money for making 50 or more attempted passes, it’s the ex-Coventry man. The truth is, it’s probably not worth looking at.

Trippier again the money man

Everything goes through Kieran Trippier for Newcastle United. In a tight spot? Give it Trippier. Want to play your striker into the channel? Give it Trippier. Set-piece? Give it Trippier. Even in Milan, when Newcastle were under the cosh, he attempted 68 passes. He has managed 70 or more in every league game this season. His odds to make 70 or more this weekend? He’s available at 5/6 – shorter than Sean Longstaff. While we’re at it, Fabian Schar and Sven Botman are evens and 6/4 respectively – they are averaging just short of 70 per game and may be worth a look at.

Blades Centre-backs aren’t the sharpest

With Sheffield United under the cosh so much from opponents, it’s perhaps little surprise that their defenders are taking the brunt of it. Anel Ahmedhodzic has already picked up two yellow cards and committed nine fouls this season. Benie Traore is expected to get the call to play up top and he has committed an impressive eight fouls, the hungry youngsters desperation to make an impression leading to him crossing the line.  
 
The latter of that group will likely be tasked with stopping Kieran Trippier dictating – the England man has been fouled once per 90 so far this season. Poor Ahmedhodzic, meanwhile, will be tasked with stopping Harvey Barnes, Anthony Gordon or Alexander Isak at various points – the former two have both been fouled over three times per 90 minutes played this season.

Guimaraes carrying the baton

Anthony Gordon, four yellows and 1.95 fouls per 90, might not start here. Joelinton, 3.13 fouls per 90 is injured. That means Bruno Guimaraes will carry the baton for the trio of dirty buggers – he has three yellow cards and 2.24 fouls per 90 to his name – he has committed two or more fouls in three of his five league starts. He’s not alone – Fabian Schar was out for blood against Brighton while Sandro Tonali and Callum Wilson have both fouled around 1.5 times per 90 
 
Sheffield United are the least fouled team in the league and the removal of Oli McBurnie doesn’t help matters – the one player willing to take knocks and do the dirty work. It means that the lively front pair of Cameron Archer and Benie Traore, both fouled around once per 90, will need to step up, as will James McAtee, who drew 1.56 fouls per 90 last season.
