Sheffield United vs Newcastle UnitedEnglish Premier League, KO: 16:30 Sep 24, 2023, Bramall Lane
NEWCASTLE UNITED go from the San Siro to Steel City when they face a trip to meet Sheffield United on Sunday.
The Geordies were out in numbers to Italy for their return to the Champions League and did their fans proud after clinging on for a goalless draw despite the home side having 25 shots on goal.
How much that will have taken out of them is the all-important question and they will know they could be in for a battle in Yorkshire.
For newly-promoted Sheffield United, there are plenty of signs of encouragement for their return to the top flight.
Although they have only collected just one point from their five games, they have served plenty of notice they will battle for survival all the way.
Frustratingly for them, they have lost all four of their matches by just one goal and those include games against champions Manchester City and high-flying Spurs.
They should have beaten Everton at home too after leading at half time, but had to settle for a draw and conceded two goals in injury time to lose at Spurs.
How the bookies view it
Newcastle United are strong favourites here at 2/5 generally although bet365 go 4/9 on an away win.
Recent head to heads
This will be their first meeting for three years and recent history is on the side of the visitors because they have won six out of the last seven games between the teams including 1-0 on their last visit to Bramall Lane.
Players to watch
Cameron Archer is viewed as a bright talent for the Blades and scored against Everton. The 21-year-old is 7/2 to score anytime with bet365.
Anthony Gordon played for just over an hour in Italy before being sacricied as United put up the barricades. The former Everton star is 3/1 to score anytime with UniBet.
Anything else catch the eye?
This has the making of a tough afternoon for the Geordies, who must be exhausted after putting all that effort in Milan to claim a point.
Sheffield United have given every team a battle so far in the league and they are worth backing on the double chance market at 15/8 with bet365 for a draw or a win.
The home side conceded 12 corners to both Manchester City and Spurs and Newcastle can contribute to that tally too. Back over 10.5 corners at 20/21 with Paddy Power.
