Team News

Newcastle United returns to England proudly of their midweek result after the Magpies took a point off Serie A giants AC Milan during a 0-0 draw in their first Champions League appearance in twenty years, with a clash against relegation candidates Sheffield United offering a chance to string together back-to-back league wins.

Eddie Howe will be without key midfielder Joelinton for this one as the Brazilian is set for a spell in drydock after picking up an injury during the recent international break.

It is likely that Howe will also be without Emil Krafth, Joe Willock, and Javier Manquillo as well. Though currently listed as doubts, neither of the three outfield players is expected to feature in the matchday squad but are still expected to return to full senior duties in the near future.
