Suara.com – Sheffield United finally tasted victory in the Premier League event this season. The Blades successfully beat Newcastle United 1-0 in the 18th week at Bramall Lane Stadium, Wednesday (13/1/2021) in the morning WIB.
Billy Sharp’s penalty snatched Sheffield United’s first win. This result at the same time stopped the streak of winless records in the previous 20 matches that had taken place since last season.
Despite winning, Sheffield still hasn’t moved from the top position of the standings with a collection of five points and still needs nine points to secure themselves from the relegation zone.
In contrast, Newcastle United extended their poor record without a win to six games in a row. Now they are still ranked 15th and have a safe distance of eight points from the red zone.

The course of the match
Chris Wilder’s side had a chance to open the scoring in the 12th minute but David McGoldrick still failed to beat goalkeeper Karl Darlow in one-on-one situations.
In the 28th minute, Newcastle threatens again with a Federico Fernandez cross but Callum Wilson’s header goes wide.
Sheffield created three more chances that had yet to come to fruition, but the most important first-half incident for them was Ryan Fraser’s two consecutive yellow cards forcing Newcastle half-time with only 10 players on the pitch.
The Blades had to wait until the 70th minute to take advantage of an 11-on-10 situation when Sharp brought down Fernandez in the area.
