Here is the team we predict Steve Bruce will send out for tonight’s match at Sheffield United. It features just one change with Ciaran Clark making way for Fabian Schar.
Squad rotation has been on Steve Bruce’s lips this week. He again spoke about it yesterday in his press conference. With six matches coming up in December, we expect to see some changes in team selection this month.
We think that will start tonight. However, Bruce won’t tinker too much with what has worked over the past couple of months.
Both Andy Carroll and DeAndre Yedlin, who missed out at the weekend, are fit and available for selection. Though Bruce has revealed that he is taking it extra cautious with Frenchman Florian Lejeune, who continues to train but will not be available to play.
The results over the past two days of Premier League action has not changed Newcastle’s league position. We remain in 14th and can climb into 11th with a win or 12th with a draw.
Sheffield United have dropped a couple of places but are still in the 9th spot and a win for them would see them up to 6th place. Their manager Chris Wilder has also been talking about rotating his squad this week as well. They currently have no one injured so he has a fully fit team to select from.
Matt Ritchie – ankle, Jamaal Lascelles – leg, Florian Lejeune – knee
Our poll for this match shows that Newcastle fans are confident after the display on Saturday. Of the 1,238 total votes, 37% predict a draw while 36% have Newcastle returning home with all three points. Just 27% think we’ll get nothing from the match.
This is an important one against a very good team. They are unbeaten in their last 7 but have only managed draws in their last 3 matches. This is a great opportunity to start the month off the right way with a result.
