Our prediction for this Premier League match:
After eliminating Bristol Rovers in the FA Cup last 64, Sheffield United will be aiming to register their first league win when they take on Newcastle United at their Bramall Lane. The Blades regained a much-needed confidence at the weekend, and, no doubt, they will go all guns blazing at the Magpies in the postponed clash. Berge and O’Connell remain in the recovery room, while the Newcastle United game comes too early for McBurnie.
Both Baldock and Stevens are rated doubtful. Steve Bruce’s troops, on the other hand, were eliminated by Arsenal after extra time in the FA Cup, with the team extending their winless run in all competitions to seven games. Since Sheffield United want this win more than Newcastle United, we predict that the rock-bottom side will emerge triumphant in Tuesday’s clash. Saint-Maximin remains on the sidelines, while both Fraser and Lewis should be fit to face the Blades. Key attacker Callum Wilson returns to the starting XI.
Highlighted Player (Ben Osborn):
Ben Osborn is an English footballer who plays for Nottingham Forest as a midfielder. Osborn was born in Derby (England) on August 5, 1994 and he started his youth career at his hometown club Derby County. In 2003 he moved to Nottingham Forest and after spending ten years at their football academy Osborn made his first-team debut for the Reds.
He made his debut on March 29, 2014 in a 1-1 draw with Ipswich Town and he has been playing for the City Ground Stadium outfit ever since. Ben Osborn has one cap for England U20 team and he played for England U19 and England U18 teams in the past as well.
It has to be noted that the Nottingham Forest midfielder scored four goals, while providing seven assists for his teammates in the 2016/2017 Championship season. His main position is left midfield, but he is capable of playing as both central and attacking midfielder as well. Ben Osborn’s preferred foot is left.
Highlighted Team (Newcastle United):
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.
