Newcastle suffered a narrow 4-3 defeat on Friday in an eye-catching encounter with new champions Manchester City at St James’ Park.
The Magpies went ahead through Emil Krafth in the 25th minute, but goals from Joao Cancelo and Ferran Torres turned the game on its head late in the first half, before a Joelinton penalty in the sixth minute of added time saw the sides go into the break level.
Steve Bruce‘s side then restored their lead through Joe Willock on the hour mark, but Torres immediately responded with two goals to bring up his hat-trick and seal a 4-3 win for the Citizens.
Despite falling to an eventual defeat, the Tyneside outfit will feel positive about coming close to a result against the league’s runaway team, while they have displayed strong form in the last six weeks to move themselves away from the threat of relegation.
Since the beginning of April, the Magpies have picked up a commendable tally of 11 points from seven Premier League games, including a 3-2 win over seventh-placed West Ham United and a recent 4-2 victory over third-placed Leicester City, as Willock and Paul Dummett got on the scoresheet alongside a Callum Wilson brace.
As a result of their upturn in form, Bruce’s side recently managed to confirm their survival, having previously been in a battle with the likes of Fulham and Burnley to avoid the drop to the Championship.
They take on a side who have fallen well short in the battle to survive, as Sheffield United were officially relegated after a narrow defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers in April.
