Premier League: Newcastle Defeats Sheffield United 8-0

Newcastle on Sunday thrashed Sheffield United 8-0 at Bramall Lane with eight different players scoring to leave the home side bottom of the Premier League standings.

Newcastle showed no signs of a hangover from midweek after their first Champions League game in 20 years—a goalless draw away at AC Milan—and they took a 3-0 lead by halftime with goals from Sean Longstaff, Dan Burn, and Sven Botman.

The second half was a similar story, as Kieran Trippier racked up his third assist when Callum Wilson headed home before Anthony Gordon curled in Newcastle’s fifth from outside the box, which had Blades fans heading for the exits by the hour mark.

There was no respite as Miguel Almiron and Bruno Guimaraes capitalised on weak defending to make it 7-0 before substitute Alexander Isak completed the rout with a late goal to move Eddie Howe’s side up to eighth in the standings.
