Newcastle United is safe in the Premier League this season for the time being. Another win here will improve their position on the table to the 15th spot. However, Sheffield United is already relegated but they did crash the party for Everton last time out. So, the host can expect a tough game on Wednesday despite playing a relegated team in the league.
The Magpies have won only two of their last five matches in the campaign. And their last two defeats in the campaign came at home, including the 3-4 loss at home against Manchester City in the previous encounter. Their only comfort will be that the defeats came against teams above them on the table.
Despite being relegated this season, the Blades have not let down their fight in the league. The away team will aim to finish the top-tier in style. They will visit on the back of a 0-1 win on the road against the likes of Everton last time out in their schedule.
Newcastle vs Sheffield United Head-to-head (h2h)
- None of their last ten matches have ended in a draw.

- The host has recorded four of the last five overall wins.
- Their previous clash gave a 1-0 home win for the Blades.
- The host has lost one of their last five clashes at home.
Newcastle vs Sheffield United Prediction
Newcastle has lost only two of their last seven home matches in the league. As mentioned earlier, these two defeats came against stronger sides like Manchester City and Arsenal. Since the host is facing a relegated team on Wednesday, they have a better chance to make a comeback.
Apart from their last away win, the Blades have lost all of their last nine outings in the league. Hence, the home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters in the clash. Besides, there is a good chance for a high-scoring affair in ninety minutes. So, the tip for over 2.5 goals will also come in handy for the encounter.
