Looking back at the time Newcastle lost to the worst team in Premier League history

Many Newcastle fans will be nervous about the prospect of facing a Sheffield United side who are yet to win a league game this season, all because of what happened over 13 years ago...


Derby County, who only managed 11 points during their the 2007/08 Premier League season, a recorded their only win of that entire campaign against Newcastle.


VAVEL looked back at the Newcastle side that lost that memorable game in 2007.

Previous meeting

In the last game between these two sides, Newcastle dismantled Sheffield United in a 3-0 victory at St James' Park.


After a goalless first half, the tide turned in Newcastle's favour after Blades defender John Egan was given his marching orders on 50 minutes.


Five minutes after he was sent off, Allan Saint-Maximin fired The Magpies in front after pouncing on a critical error from George Baldock.


Followed by a wonder strike from Matt Ritchie and a well-needed goal from Joelinton, it ensured that Steve Bruce's side made an emphatic start to 'Project Restart'.

Magpies searching for first win in seven

After crashing out of the FA Cup after extra time against Arsenal, it meant it was seven games in all competitions without a win for Newcastle.


Steve Bruce's side now sit in 15th place in the table, and will be desperate to return to winning ways against a side who have had the worst Premier League start compared to any other side in Sheffield United.

18:357 days ago

Blades still seeking first league win

The Premier League's bottom club Sheffield United tasted victory for the first time this season at the weekend, with a 3-2 win over Bristol Rovers League One side in the FA Cup.


Blades boss Chris Wilder will be hoping that the win, albeit against lower league opposition, will give his side some much needed confidence heading into tomorrow night's crucial tie with Newcastle.


Every game is a must win for the South Yorkshire club that currently have two points - but if they do not want the unwanted record of a lowest ever Premier League points haul - it is essential they start picking up results.
