Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Sunday’s football game between Sheffield United and Newcastle United will bring down the curtain on day 6 of the new Premier League campaign. The Blades made a slow start to the season, with the team collecting only one point in total in the process, but they were more than unfortunate not to grab something from the Tottenham clash, with Spurs scoring two goals in the stoppage time. Scotland forward Oliver McBurnie serves a one-game ban, while several players are major doubts, including George Baldock, William Osula, John Egan, and Rhian Brewster.
The Magpies, on the other hand, managed to break the deadlock against Brentford, with Callum Wilson sealing the victory from the penalty spot after 64 minutes. Newcastle United are more of a team than Sheffield United and we predict that the Champions League hopefuls are going to showcase their quality on the field. All Javier Manquillo, Emil Krafth, and Joseph Willock should recover in time to face the Blades, while Brazil international Joelinton misses out with a knee injury.
Highlighted Player (Oliver Norwood):
Oliver Norwood is a Reading midfielder who began his youth career at Manchester United. Norwood made his debut for the reserve team against Middlesbrough in November, 2007, but he did not get a chance to play for the first team. After ending his loan spell with Coventry City in 2012, the 180-cm-tall midfielder signed a contract with Huddersfield Town.
Oliver Norwood scored eight goals in 80 league appearances for the club between 2012 and 2014. Later in 2014 he joined Reading for an undisclosed fee and he made his debut for the Royals against Nottingham Forest on 23 August, 2014.
Norwood was born in Burnley, England and he has six caps for England U16 team. He played three games for the U17 team as well, but he then decided to represent Northern Ireland as his heritage is Northern Irish. Norwood made his debut for the Green and White Army on 11 August, 2010, in a 2-0 loss to Montenegro. He replaced Sammy Clingan in the second half of the match.
Highlighted Team (Newcastle):
Newcastle United failed to impress in the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign and, as a result, they dropped to the English second tier. The Magpies will host their rivals at their St. James’ Park in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign and it has to be noted that the capacity of the stadium is 52,354.
Newcastle United have won four domestic trophies (1904/1905, 1906/1907, 1908/1909, 1926/1927), while lifting six FA Cup titles (1910, 1924, 1932, 1951, 1952, 1955) and a number of star players were part of the St. James’ Park outfit in the past.
David Ginola, Michael Owen, Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Nolberto Solano, Gary Speed, Obafemi Martins and Kevin Nolan are notable footballers who are still remembered at the club. Newcastle’s fiercest rivals are Sunderland and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals face each other in the Tyne-Wear derby. The color of Newcastle’s home kit is black and white.
