They say nothing is won in the first six weeks of the season, but trophies can definitely be lost. Newcastle have had a lackluster start to their campaign after what was an excellent first season under new ownership. After a drab midweek draw against AC Milan in their first Champions League game since the 2002/2003 season, Eddie Howe’s side will be looking to secure 3 points against newly promoted Sheffield. Let’s take a closer look at how each team has performed so far this season as well as their respective injury situations.

Statistics for Sheffield United vs Newcastle United

Newcastle have had a mixed start to the season, winning 2 and losing 3 of their first five games, with their most impressive victory coming on the opening day in a 5-1 home win against Aston Villa. After some mixed results following that excellent display, they managed to secure a 1-0 victory at home to Brentford last weekend, which could help them carry some momentum into the next game. Furthermore, their top scorer this season is none other than Callum Wilson, with three goals, closely followed by Isak with two.

Meanwhile, Sheffield United have yet to secure their first win of the season, managing to scrape together just a point so far. They’ve hit the net five times whilst conceding on nine occasions. From the look of things, having home advantage is the only positive for them going into this one. Then again, it also depends on which Newcastle turns up on the day.
