Hayden, Joelinton, And Ritchie Get Starts Against Sheffield United



Here is the team Steve Bruce has selected for this afternoon’s match against Sheffield United at an empty St James Park. It features just one change from our last game, a win against Southampton, those many months ago.

Steve Bruce has kept the side that won against Southampton intact. The only change is Joelinton in for the hobbled Dwight Gayle, who has recovered enough for a place on the expanded bench. Matt Ritchie has overcome his knock and gets a start on the right-wing.

Here is the team that Sheffield manager Chris Wilder has picked.

The results so far in the Premier League’s return have been mixed from a Newcastle perspective. We’ve dropped one place due to Southampton picking up a massive win for them over Norwich.

However, other than Brighton winning, the damage hasn’t been too severe. No matter what the outcome today, we’ll maintain our 8 point cushion over the bottom three.

Sheffield were a bit unlucky on Wednesday, only managing a 0-0 draw at Aston Villa. But the surprise team of the season have proven they are Premier League quality and will be a tough opponent today.

Hopefully, Bruce’s team selection works out well, and we can get a result against the Blades. Three points would be absolutely brilliant and put is in an excellent position for a run up the table.

Howay The Lads!

    Looks like Bruce has had the lads training on hoofing it to Joelinton. I wonder if MBS is watching.

    Bloody hell Sheffield Utd do know how to whip a dangerous ball into the box. A few tricky ones we’ve had to deal with already.

    Joelinton loses the ball in our first and only attack and Rose gets himself into a daft position.
    Service as usual.
    Hayden saves us from Rose’s cock up. Ritchie spots horrible marking at SU corner and stops ball reaching its target.

    When you see ASM go past their defender like he isn’t there why did Bruce bottle it and not put Lazaro on ? 2 rapid wingers allows us to peg them back

    Shelvey goes too far back he plays more like a ball playing Sweeper than a CM. Hate it when he does that as he leaves us light in midfield.

    We can actually pass when we want too.. But we usually just go back to hoof ball and then end up sitting deeper and deeper

    Dubravka should be on orders to go short from here on out. Joelinton’s winning nothing in the air today.
