Sheffield United vs Newcastle Prediction & Match Preview

Sheffield United vs Newcastle United
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 12 January 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Bramall Lane.


After eliminating Bristol Rovers in the FA Cup last 64, Sheffield United will be aiming to register their first league win when they take on Newcastle United at their Bramall Lane.

The Blades regained a much-needed confidence at the weekend, and, no doubt, they will go all guns blazing at the Magpies in the postponed clash.

Berge and O’Connell remain in the recovery room, while the Newcastle United game comes too early for McBurnie.

Both Baldock and Stevens are rated doubtful. Steve Bruce’s troops, on the other hand, were eliminated by Arsenal after extra time in the FA Cup, with the team extending their winless run in all competitions to seven games.

Since Sheffield United want this win more than Newcastle United, we predict that the rock-bottom side will emerge triumphant in Tuesday’s clash.

Saint-Maximin remains on the sidelines, while both Fraser and Lewis should be fit to face the Blades. Key attacker Callum Wilson returns to the starting XI.

Team News

Sheffield United full-backs Enda Stevens and George Baldock did not make the trip to Bristol Rovers at the weekend and will be assessed ahead of this game.

Jack Robinson is not expected to feature as he recovers from a knock, while question marks continue to hang over the head of Oli McBurnie, but the hosts are well-stocked up top.

Burke has staked his claim for a starting place with his goal on Saturday and could be granted it if Wilder opts to rest Lys Mousset, who made headlines after his car was involved in a crash last week.

As for Newcastle, Jamal Lewis is not quite ready to return to the fold, but there is optimism over Ryan Fraser's availability even though he missed out against Arsenal.

Allan Saint-Maximin continues to recover from a particularly nasty bout of coronavirus, and the club recently confirmed that the winger did not breach any protocols after being pictured in a supermarket.

Callum Wilson and Jonjo Shelvey did not travel to the Emirates as a precaution but should be fine for this one, while Jamaal Lascelles is a minor doubt after lasting just 45 minutes on Saturday before being forced off through fatigue.

Ramsdale; Egan, Ampadu, Basham; Bogle, Norwood, Fleck, Lundstram, Lowe; McGoldrick, Burke
