Newcastle’s latest Premier League win over Sheffield United took them into 11th in the Premier League table, level on points with Arsenal.
The Magpies sit just four points behind Wolves, who currently sit in fifth, occupying the automatic qualification slot for the Europa League.
Steve Bruce’s appointment as the replacement to Rafael Benitez wasn’t greeted with universal praise, but he’s found a system that has made them extremely hard to beat.
They’ve lost just once in their last six games, and have managed to draw with Manchester City as well as beat Manchester United already this season.
The win over the Blades saw Allan Saint-Maximin register his first goal for the club, with Jonjo Shelvey scoring in consecutive games in controversial circumstances.
Sheffield United manager Chris Wilder praised the fans’ support after the game – here’s how some Newcastle supporters reacted to that:
