Sheffield United vs Norwich City Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides who have made slow starts and are looking to push on. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Sheffield United were held in midweek by Hull in the League Cup and then found themselves eliminated on penalties. In the League, they picked up a victory at the third attempt defeating QPR 2-1 with a goal each from Billy Sharp and David McGoldrick (penalty). Norwich picked up their first victory of the season with a 3-1 defeat of Stevenage in the League Cup. The Canaries now just need to get a league victory as despite netting five goals still only have one point. The two meetings between the pair were won by the roadside with United winning 2-1 at Carrow Road and City 1-0 at Bramall Lane. Not one of the last 16 meetings between the pair have ended in a draw.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Norwich have been unlucky this season and it might be that their luck turns here but a safer way to side with them is in the team goal market. They are firing in goals so backing them to score over 1.5 and then again over 2.5 means that you do not have to worry about their defence letting you down.

Sheffield United Preview

The Blades have won just one of their opening three and that one was boosted by a controversial penalty. If you add in last season then they have now won just three of their last 12. At Bramall Lane, they are without a win in three and have won just one of six in front of their own fans. The Yorkshire side have kept a clean sheet in none of their last five and just two of their last ten at their own ground. Billy Sharp netted in the League Cup in midweek to bring his tally of goals for the season to two. The last five goals that Sheffield United have conceded have come in the opening 45 minutes.

Sheffield United Team News

Paul Coutts (fitness) and Jake Wright (broken cheekbone) are doubts.

Norwich City Preview

The Canaries would be second on the expected goals table with two wins from two as it is they have just one point. Both teams to score and over 3.5 goals has happened in each of their three this season. Away from Carrow Road, the East Anglian outfit are without a victory in their last nine though five of these have ended in draws. Eight of their last nine on the road have seen both teams score.Onel Hernandez has two league goals this season while Teemu Pukki has two of three in all competitions. The three fixtures Norwich have played this season have seen a combined eight goals in the final 20 minutes.

Norwich City Team News

Jamal Lewis (leg), Tom Trybull (unknown); Mario Vrancic (hip) and Emiliano Buendia (fitness) are all doubts while Matt Jarvis (ankle) is a long-term absentee.
