Sheffield United have been earning rave reviews for much of the Premier League season, while Newcastle United have been written about in much less glowing terms, although the bottom line is that the two teams are only separated by three points in the table.

The Blades are one of the surprise packages in the top flight this season and sit seventh in the Premier League, although we’re not sure they should be trading at odds-on to win Thursday’s clash against a Magpies side who were able to hold Manchester City to a 2-2 draw on Saturday.

Chris Wilder’s side have only won three of their seven matches at Bramall Lane this term and completely bossed affairs against Manchester United only to throw away a two-goal lead and need a late equaliser to get something from the game.

The biggest weakness among the home ranks is a lack of firepower, with David McGoldrick having thus far failed to find the net, even if Lys Mousset is bidding to score for the third successive game after bagging the opener at Molineux.

A sum total of sixteen goals have been scored in seven games at Bramall Lane, while Newcastle are averaging less than a goal per match on the road despite a recent 3-2 triumph at West Ham United.

Steve Bruce will look to employ a policy of containment in this match and it certainly worked well against Man City considering that the Magpies twice came from behind to take a share of the spoils.

Miguel Almiron and Allan Saint-Maximin are players that can exploit the Blades on the counter-attack with their pace, although the prime objective is for Newcastle to keep things initially tight, with the Yorkshire side looking to carve out a few decent scoring opportunities as they did against Wolves.

We’ll plump for a low goal count considering that the visitors might very well draw a blank and we’re not sure Sheffield United can score three goals themselves.
