Entertaining match expected at Bramall Lane
After collapsing in injury time against Tottenham last weekend, Sheffield United have seen a total of over 2.5 goals in each of their last four league matches. Newcastle have hit the over in three of their five league fixtures this term.
While bettors will be wary of Newcastle being fatigued after a tense match against Milan in midweek, Sheffield United have their own availability issues with up to 12 first-team players potentially out this weekend.
The Blades’ defence is the second-worst in the league according to their underlying metrics. Goals are to be expected at Bramall Lane – there’s better value here than taking Newcastle in the match winner market.
🔹 Sheffield United vs Newcastle Bet 1: Over 2.5 total goals @ 4/6 [Bet9ja] 🔹
Wilson to get on the scoresheet
Scorer of the winner against Brentford last weekend and only used as a substitute at San Siro, Callum Wilson is expected to lead the line for Newcastle on Sunday. Wilson is averaging a shot every 18.6 minutes in the Premier League.
While there are some recent head-to-head stats between these teams, the matchups in 2019-20 and 2020-21 do not reveal much to us considering how much has changed for Newcastle since then.
Newcastle are a much more difficult opponent than they were when these teams last faced off. Wilson has flourished under Eddie Howe, scoring 18 Premier League goals last season. The 31-year-old looks good value to score anytime against a leaky Blades defence.
🔹 Sheffield United vs Newcastle Bet 2: Callum Wilson to score anytime @ 10/11 [Bet9ja] 🔹
Souza set for a caution
Sheffield United are going to spend the majority of this match under pressure. Their defensive players will be forced to work incredibly hard to keep Newcastle at bay.
One of those players is defensive midfielder Vinicius Souza. The Brazilian averages the joint-most tackles per game of any Sheffield United player to make more than two appearances, and has a history of bookings, having received 16 cautions over his last two seasons.
No team has seen their opponents rack up more cards than Newcastle. Souza has a big role to play with breaking up attacks from the visitors, putting him at risk of a caution.
