When is Newcastle v Sheffield United?

Barring any health emergencies, the game is scheduled to take place on Sunday June 21.

What time does Newcastle v Sheffield United kick-off?

The game is the first of three Premier League matches on June 21 and the action gets underway at 2pm.

What is at stake?

For Newcastle, not a great deal. Thoughts on Tyneside are very much aimed towards the future with the ongoing takeover talks appearing to be nearing a conclusion. The Magpies have had a decent campaign under Steve Bruce and find themselves relatively secure in mid-table.

Sheffield United, however, are right in the mix for European qualification, which would complete a remarkable return to the top-flight for Chris Wilder’s men.

Where can I watch Newcastle v Sheffield United?

Sky Sports are broadcasting this one, and indeed all the matches on June 21.

Is Newcastle v Sheffield United free-to-air?

It is indeed! Sky have opted to include it in their picks for the free-to-air channels, so you won’t need a subscription to enjoy this one.

What is the team news?

Dean Henderson TEAMtalk

Sheffield United are pretty much injury-free and have been further boosted by the news that Manchester United are expected to allow on-loan goalkeeper Dean Henderson to complete the season at Bramall Lane.

Newcastle have positive news on the goalkeeper front too, with the influential Martin Dubravka declaring himself fit after picking up a knee injury just before lockdown.

Perpetual injury victim Andy Carroll is also reportedly available if needed.

What happened in the reverse match?

Allan Saint-Maximin and Jonjo Shelvey scored the goals as Newcastle stormed to an impressive 2-0 win at Bramall Lane back in December.

What are the odds?

Sheffield United are the 5/4 favourites to sneak this one. Meanwhile, Newcastle are priced at 12/5 and the draw can be backed at 21/10.
