Sheffield United’s long unbeaten run continues.

On Sunday, they travelled to Molineux to take on a side one point above them, Wolverhampton Wanderers.

However, it was the away supporters celebrating less than two minutes in when Lys Mousset fired them in front.

That is Sheffield United’s second-fastest goal in Premier League history and their quickest since 1993.

Wolves did equalise in the second half as a very even encounter finished all square.

The Blades are now unbeaten in seven league matches, despite having played Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United and others in that time.

In fact, surprisingly, they’re unbeaten away from home with all three of their losses coming on home turf.

Can they make it three home wins in four and climb even higher than their current position of seventh?

Will Newcastle cause a shock?

Newcastle meanwhile have found some form of their own.

On Saturday, the champions visited St James’ Park but were not warmly welcomed.

Despite the fact Manchester City took an early lead, Newcastle hit back less than three minutes later.

Miguel Almirón’s back-heel finding Jetro Willems who curled home an equaliser.

This pattern then repeated itself very late on.

It looked as though the visitors had won it late on but, once again, the Magpies were not beaten.

With just over a minute to go, a free-kick was rolled to Jonjo Shelvey who curled home a magnificent equaliser.

2-2 it finished; a very good point for Steve Bruce’s team.

That draw means the Toon Army have now amassed 11 points from their last seven matches.

That means they are comfortably in mid-table, six points above the drop zone.

They also have a good record against their hosts.

In fact, Newcastle have won five of their last six meetings with Sheffield United in all competitions.

Although this is the first Premier League match between the sides since April 2007, when the Magpies won 2-1 at Bramall Lane

Will they leave Sheffield with a win?

Chris Wilder has enjoyed the luxury of a very settled XI this season.

With games coming thick and fast in December, it’ll be interesting to see if he does rotate a bit more.

There’s no doubt that Dean Henderson will be in goal; only one goalkeeper has kept more than his five clean sheets.

The defence in front of him is also settled.

John Egan is back from a calf problem so will once again join Chris Basham and Jack O’Connell at the back.

Egan leads the way in the Premier League for headed clearances (43).

Likewise, the wing-backs and midfield trio never changes.

George Baldock and Enda Stevens will continue to operate out-wide.

Likewise, John Fleck, Oliver Norwood and John Lundstram will continue in midfield.

Up-front is the only area Wilder has chopped and changed this season.

However, David McGoldrick and the free-scoring Lys Mousset are both in form just now so are likely to both start once again.

Billy Sharp, Callum Robinson and Oli McBurnie would thereby all be on the bench.

Will the Blades win again?

As for Steve Bruce’s side, as they’re also in form, he is unlikely to make any changes either.

Martin Dúbravka will continue in goal; only two goalkeepers have made more saves then him in the Premier League so far this season.

In defence, after an outstanding performance on Saturday, Paul Dummett, Ciaran Clark and Federico Fernández will all keep their places.

Likewise, it’ll be Jetro Willems on the left.

On the other side, DeAndre Yedlin is out with a hip injury and it’s likely to be Javier Manquillo who deputises once again, chosen over Emil Krafth.

In midfield, both Longstaff brothers, Sean and Matty, are likely to be left on the bench again where they’ll also find Ki Sung-yueng.

This is because Isaac Hayden and Jonjo Shelvey have formed a formidable partnership lately.

11 of Shelvey’s 17 Premier League goals have come from outside the box.

Only two players can boast a higher % than that; Laurent Robert and David Ginola.

Further forward, on his 24th appearance, Miguel Almirón finally got an assist for Newcastle with what was his 23rd chance created.

Can the Paraguayan now get his first goal for the club?

Likewise, Allan Saint-Maximin is also yet to net for the Magpies.

Joelinton has scored once for the club but that was way back in August in the win at Tottenham.

Can the front three start firing and lead Newcastle to their first win of the season outside of Tyneside or London?
