Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 16
Kick-off:
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich)
The visitors have been enjoying a stellar Premier League campaign so far, sitting ninth on the league standings, just four points adrift of Wolves in fifth place. Manager Chris Wilder is the mastermind behind this impressive Sheffield United team, as he has had them playing in scintillating fashion so far.

Norwich started the season strongly as they looked a real breath of fresh air in the early weeks of the season, with the intense pressing and sophisticated passing style instilled by Farke. However, as weeks went by, their performances continued to diminish as well as their league position.

Now sitting in the relegation places, the Canaries will be looking to get one over fellow newly-promoted side Sheffield United when both sides battle for maximum points this Sunday.

Daniel Farke will be wondering where he got it all wrong with his Norwich team, given their sharp decline in form since the start of the campaign. The manager now has to go back to the drawing board to attempt getting his team right back on track.

A team that started the season admirably well with some impressive high intensity and beautiful passing style on show, they have lost their mojo and are now battling with fellow strugglers in the relegation zone.

To be fair to Farke, nobody really expected anything significant from this Norwich side this season, given they just got promoted to the English top flight. However, the expectations have risen, owing to his own masterclass at the start of the campaign. He rose the bar high and is now struggling to meet expectations. Poor Farke.

The onus is now on the manager to get his side playing as he had them at the start of the campaign, starting with an unlikely victory against Sheffield United. Their 2-2 draw over manager-less Arsenal last time out will hopefully give them the much-needed confidence they have been lacking recently.

Sheffield United, on the other hand, have been over-performing this season, surpassing pre-season expectations to battle the likes of Wolves, Arsenal and Manchester United for a Europa league place. Chris Wilder is the man of the moment and clearly deserves all the plaudits he has been receiving.

Last time out against Wolves, they dug really deep to salvage a 1-1 draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers on away soil. Prior to that game, they showed character to come from a goal behind to steal a point from Manchester United in the dying minutes of the game.

Chris Wilder has refused to let his sides’ standards drop and the clubs supporters will already be dreaming of a European spot at the end of the season.

Norwich: Timm Klose, Grant Hanley, Josip Drmic.

Norwich vs Sheffield Utd Predictions

The visitors have got to be considered favourites to come away with the win in this tie, despite the away handicap. They have had it very easy against the league’s smaller teams and have given stronger teams torrid times on the pitch.

Lys Mousset has been the cream of the crop for the Blades this season, with the striker firing on all cylinders. Sheffield United have enough quality within their ranks to see off the challenge of Norwich City this Sunday.
