Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas has identified what Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce must look to utilise in order to beat Sheffield United on Thursday night.

In other Newcastle United news, a 5 ft 7 Toon man is keen to leave St. James’ Park.

If their shape is good, the counter-attack will be a strong weapon for them.” What will the result be against Sheffield United?



The result was the Blades’ third-straight draw in the top-flight and are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League games, including a 1-0 win at home to Arsenal in October and a 1-1 draw at Tottenham Hotspur.

Bruce takes the Toon to Bramall Lane on the back of holding Manchester City to a 2-2 draw, while Chris Wilder’s Blades were held to a point away to Wolverhampton Wanderers at the weekend having moved into the lead inside the second-minute.

Sheffield United also hold one of the most resilient defences in the division, having allowed an average of just 9.9 shots against them when at Bramall Lane this season – the sixth-best average.

Our time in the opposition’s defensive third is reduced to just 20% when on the road, too, while playing 35% of the game in our third – suggesting Nicholas’ anticipation of a backs-to-the-wall counter-attacking game not being far wide of the mark.
