Team news: Wilson and Fraser start
Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser will both start as Newcastle United go in search of a first win of 2021 against Sheffield United on Tuesday night (6pm kick-off).
The former Bournemouth pair come back into the Magpies’ side as Steve Bruce shuffles his pack for the clash with the Blades – who currently sit bottom of the Premier League – at Bramall Lane.
Elsewhere, the in-form Karl Darlow is preferred to the fit-again Martin Dúbravka between the posts, with Fabian Schär and Federico Fernández returning to the backline to line up alongside DeAndre Yedlin, Ciaran Clark and Paul Dummett.
And leading scorer Wilson, who missed the weekend’s FA Cup defeat at Arsenal as a precaution, returns to lead the line against Chris Wilder’s side.
And Matty Longstaff and Dúbravka complete the list of players Bruce can deploy from the bench.
