Sheffield United heads to St. James’ Park for the penultimate game of this Premier League tenure, a scrap with Newcastle United (start time 1pm ET online via Peacock Premium).
The Magpies are back in 17th place thanks to Brighton’s defeat of Man City on Tuesday, but can climb back into 15th with a win.
Blades have lost to Newcastle a couple of times over the past two seasons, but will feel this could be a chance for a big win.
Sheffield United is not yet nailed to 20th place, six points behind 19th-place West Brom.
OUT: Elliott Anderson (hip), Jamaal Lascelles (ankle), Callum Wilson (thigh), Fabian Schar (red card), Ryan Fraser (knee), Karl Darlow (knee), Isaac Hayden (knee).

The Magpies have been playing some fun football and perhaps may even be building something. Blades have nothing to lose and certainly aren’t as poor as they’ve looked this year. Newcastle 3-1 Sheffield United.
