Our prediction: Newcastle v Sheffield United

Newcastle have found a purple patch in front of goal in their past two games with seven goals scored, including three against champions Manchester City last time out.

Joe Willock is the man of the moment at present while Joelinton has also found some good form, and they'll both be hoping to add to their goal tallies against a sometimes sloppy Sheffield United defence.

The Blades certainly haven't downed tools since being relegated as last week's win on Merseyside showed, but they'll need to be at their best once again to snatch a win in front of Newcastle's passionate fans.

Our prediction: Newcastle 2-1 Sheffield United (8/1 at bet365)
