FULL-TIME

Newcastle are back with a bang, as three second half goals were enough to ease past a Sheffield United side who were uncharacteristically at sea defensively. 

Importantly for United they looked threatening going forward with goals scored by two of their wingers and striker Joelinton.

It went downhill for the Blades when they lost John Egan who was sent off at 0-0 for a second yellow. Newcastle move to eighth, with Wilder's men still in seventh.

Man of the Match - Allan Saint-Maximin

3-0. 

15:475 months ago
89'- Chris Wilder's side have conceded three goals for the first time this season today whilst on the other side, Newcastle have scored three for the first time in the league. 

3-0.

15:425 months ago
84'- The hosts are looking for a fourth but Andy Carroll's cross has too much on it for Manquillo to control. 

McBurnie is off for Kieron Freeman, whilst Fabian Schar and Valentino Lazaro replace Jonjo Shelvey and Miguel Almiron. 

3-0. 

15:365 months ago

GOAL! NEWCASTLE 3-0 SHEFFIELD UNITED

Joelinton has done it! Miguel Almiron squares it and the centre-forward was there to finish first time at the Gallowgate End. 

 

Nabil Bentaleb and Andy Carroll are on for goal-scorers Saint-Maximin and Joelinton. 

15:345 months ago
76'- Ritchie tries exactly the same as his goal from slightly further out but on this occasion Henderson stands gathers. 
15:325 months ago

2-0.

15:305 months ago
72'- Jamaal Lascelles goes into the referee's book, before Stevens has a sight at goal but his first-time shot is blazed over the bar.

2-0

15:275 months ago

GOAL! NEWCASTLE 2-0 SHEFFIELD UNITED

Matt Ritchie with a lovely strike for the hosts! Newcastle win the ball back in midfield and Ritchie advances forward with only one thing on his mind and his shot beats Henderson from the edge of the area.

It's an uphill battle for the Blades now with ten men.

2-0.

15:235 months ago

SUB AND DRINKS BREAK

66'- First change of the game comes from the away dug-out as Chris Wilder swaps John Lundstram replaces Sander Berge. 

1-0. 

15:185 months ago
60'- A good chance for two. Saint-Maximin, on the right-hand-side, makes a promising run and squares it for Almiron but the Paraguayan's first-time shot is straight at Henderson. 
15:165 months ago
59'- A big opportunity for the Blades to level. Manquillo completely loses his man Sharp who meets a cross but somehow his header falls wide. 

 

It's a let-off for Newcastle, as they switched off for a moment. 

15:135 months ago

GOAL NEWCASTLE 1-0 SHEFFIELD UNITED

Allan Saint-Maximin gives United the lead! It's a moment to forget for Stevens who misses the ball as it runs across the box and the Frenchman converts at the near-post.

A collection of errors with Basham missing out on the ball before it was delivered by Ritchie.

15:095 months ago
53'- Joelinton rises to a deep cross from the right but his header is comfortably gathered by Henderson. 
15:085 months ago

RED CARD

Egan is handed his second yellow of the game for bringing down Joelinton who had a run at goal, and Chris Wilder's men are down to ten. 

 

Ironically Newcastle played against 10 in their last in March against the Saints where they went in to win. 

15:065 months ago
50'- Billy Sharp fails to connect cleanly with a headed opportunity and Fernandez hacks the ball away. 
15:045 months ago

15:025 months ago

Back underway

14:475 months ago

HALF TIME! Newcastle 0-0 Sheffield United

It was a positive start for the Blades but Newcastle came back well with the best chance so far falling to Joelinton but he wasted his one-on-one with Dean Henderson. Since then it's been an even contest.

No goals yet. 

14:465 months ago
45'- Manquillo gets back well to clear Newcastle's lines but the visitors retaining possession in the dying moments of the first half. 
14:405 months ago
39'- Sheffield United win a corner after Hayden gets back well. Norwood takes and will have another go after Fernandez deals with the danger.
14:395 months ago
38'- Jonjo Shelvey delivers a trademark long-ball looking for Manquillo on the right but Stevens does well to steal the ball and the Blades regain possession. 
14:345 months ago
33'- A silly foul from Saint-Maximin gives the Blades a free-kick in another dangerous position, but the cross is headed away and Newcastle clear their lines. 
14:325 months ago
31'- The yellow card is out of referee David Coote's pocket for Joelinton and Egan after a minor coming-together. Seemed a little harsh on the pair. 
14:295 months ago
29'- Almiron does well to make a run down the left and eventually goes down under a challenge, but there is no foul. 
14:255 months ago

DRINKS BREAK

A new feature of the Premier League restart is seeing an official stoppage for a water break. It's goalless so far, with Joelinton going closest to breaking the deadlock so far. 
14:215 months ago
20'- Jonjo Shelvey unleashes a first-time strike at goal which was well-blocked. The hosts having a positive spell so far. 
14:195 months ago
17' - That could have been the moment for Joelinton! A fantastic pass from Saint-Maximin finds Almiron who feeds an onside Joelinton but the Brazilian scuffs his shot on goal and the ball rolls to Henderson.

 

Best chance of the game so far and a familiar sight for Newcastle supporters. 

14:165 months ago
11'- The first real signs of threat for Newcastle comes from Allan-Saint-Maximin who weaves into the area but his cut back misses everyone and the ball is cleared. 

The hosts are gradually growing into the contest. 

14:095 months ago
8'- Joelinton send the ball forward but Miguel Almiron couldn't quite latch onto it and Dean Henderson comfortably claims it. 
14:075 months ago
6' - The Blades have made an encouraging start to this game.

Norwood has just whipped in an inviting corner but no red-and-white head could meet it. 

14:025 months ago

KICK-OFF

We're underway at an empty St James' Park. The visitors have an early free-kick in a dangerous position.

 

It's an in-swinger from Norwood but Dubravka beats the ball away. 

13:575 months ago

Can the Toon do the double?

It was a mild December evening when the two sides last met at Brammall Lane and it certainly was a smash-and-grab three points for the Magpies on the road that evening.

Martin Dubravka stood firm all night and was not to be beaten, with United managing a 2-0 win despite having less than 30% of the ball. 

The spotlight was on VAR that night with Jonjo Shelvey's rather strange goal allowing to stand after an incorrect offside decision. Chris Wilder will be reinforcing to play to the whistle for sure.

TEAM NEWS REMINDER

Newcastle United: Dubravka, Manquillo, Lascelles, Fernandez, Rose, Ritchie, Hayden, Shelvey, Saint-Maximin, Joelinton, Almiron. 

 

Sheffield United: Henderson, Baldock, Stevens, Fleck, Basham, McBurnie, Sharp, Egan, Norwood, Robinson, Berge.

TEST FOR STEVE BRUCE'S NEWCASTLE

It's been a rather dis-jointed first season for Bruce with the Magpies. They have struggled for goals, but find themselves eight points clear of safety with today's game in hand. 

 

A win today would all but confirm their status given the scrapping by a number of teams below them, but it will be far from an easy welcome back to action against a physical and hard-working Blades' side.

First game for the hosts in three months, whilst the Blades come fresh off their midweek draw at Aston Villa

In the clash of the United's, Steve Bruce's Newcastle haven't played since March where his took all three points at St Mary's Stadium. 

 

For Chris Wilder's Sheffield United side who sit nine points above their opposition today, they have already tasted experience of an empty stadium. They managed a goalless draw at Villa Park in the week, when perhaps they should have taken all three subject to an error in the goal-line technology system.
