Premier League strugglers Sheffield United havd been relegated after Saturday's 5-1 thrashing in the hands of Newcastle United at St James' Park.

Anel Ahmedhodzic put the visitors ahead with a perfect header at close range from a Gustavo Hamer's cross.

The Blades saw several chances to double their lead but it was the home side that eventually levelled things when Alexander Isak drilled home a low shot in the 26th minute with an assist from Jacob Murphy.

Sheffield continued to fight for their lives as Ben Brereton Diaz saw his goal-bound shot blocked by Dan Burn while Mason Holgate header came off the woodwork on the half-hour mark.

Man City and Arsenal target, Bruno Guimaraes grabbed the next goal for the Magpies when he steered Lewis Hall's delivery into the far corner.

Isak scored his 23rd goal of the season from the penalty spot when Anthony Gordon was brought down by Holgate, before Ben Osborn bundled into his own net for Newcastle's fourth.

Fit-again striker, Callum Wilson came off the bench for the hosts to score his first top-flight goal since October 2023.

Sheffield United were awarded a late penalty, but the decision was dramatically overturned as a foul on Alex Murphy had been fouled in the preceding action before that.

The defeat leaves the Blades 10 points adrift of safety with only three games remaining.
