Newcastle United’s Victory ends Sheffield United’s Positive Trend

By db-admin –  Victory in the last seven Premier League matches won by Sheffield United finally must be stopped. Sheffield were defeated 0-2 by Newcastle United in the matchday 15 of the English Premier League, Friday (6/12) AM, Bramall Lane Stadium.

Sheffield were actually able to threaten first since the early minutes. Fullback, Enda Stevens, fired in the sixth minute, a little deflected, and was still able to be ignored by Newcastle goalkeeper, Martin Dubravka.

Seven minutes later, it was Oliver McBurnie’s turn to spread terror into the visitors’ goal. However, the placement of the ball was still rising above the opponent’s crossbar.

Continuing to be pressured, Newcastle was able to be ahead first. Allan Saint-Maximin won an aerial duel to head Javi Manquillo’s bait in the 15th minute.

Score 1-0 for the Magpies.

In the 18th minute, Dubravka made a brilliant save while blocking McBurrnie’s header.

The crisis had occurred in the area in front of Newcastle’s goal that started from a free kick scheme. However, their rearguard was still alert enough to block it.

A busy night for Dubravka. Ahead of the break, he was able to ward off a free kick from close range from the Sheffield captain in this fight, Billy Sharp.

At the beginning of the second half, McBurnie looked frustrated after his header was thwarted again by the goalkeeper.

Newcastle were able to double the advantage in the 70th minute. Jonjo Shelvey punishes the negligence of the Sheffield defense. Escaping the offside trap, he managed to struck the ball into Dean Henderson’s goal.

Score 2-0 to win Newcastle also lasted until the final whistle sounded by referee Stuart Attwell.

With this result, Newcastle moved up to 11th with 19 points. While Sheffield slipped to ninth place with the same number of points due to superior goal productivity.
