Sheffield United Relegation News: Blades relegated after heavy defeat at Newcastle

Sheffield United became the first side to be relegated from the Premier League this season after suffering a 5-1 defeat away at Newcastle United.

The Blades needed to win at St James's Park to retain any realistic hopes of survival and they got off to the perfect start courtesy of Anel Ahmedhodzic's sixth minute goal.

Alexander Isak equalised to make it 1-1 heading into the interval but a familiar story followed in the second half as the visitors' defence imploded to confirm a relegation that had been on the cards for much of the season.

Isak grabbed his second and goals from Bruno Guimaraes, Callum Wilson and an own-goal Ben Osborn sealed a comfortable home win.

Chris Wilder's side have three games left of a miserable season to endure and the work for a potential Championship promotion bid next season now begins.
