Norwich vs Sheffield United
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 8 December 2019
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich).

Sheffield are starting to face the realities of Premier League. After an impressive start to their campaign, the team is now winless in their last four games, and have lost their place in the European spots. Suffice it to say that the Blades are desperate for the three points, and considering that that they are taking on the 19th placed Norwich, a favorable result looks likely for Sheffield.

Norwich vs Sheffield United Prediction

Norwich were on the road the last match-day, and despite finding the back of the net for a change away from home, they had to concede loss to Southampton. The score was 2-1, in favor of the hosts.

In the meantime, Sheffield had been at home, and still had to bow down to the 0-2 scoreline put forth by Newcastle, the previous game week.

At present, Norwich are placed just second to last in the table, while their counterparts are placed ninth in standings. Both are new entrants into the competition from the lower division, and while it may be hard to believe, Norwich had in fact topped Championship standings last season, whereas, Sheffield finished second.

But where things have differed is the comparatively well-oiled defense of the Blades. As of now, only two teams have conceded fewer goals than their squad, and those are Liverpool, and Leicester.

Moreover, Sheffield have scored twice or more against this opponent in two of the former three games, and in their last three visits to this venue. It’s also been two years since Norwich have won against this opponent.

Furthermore, Norwich were winless in nine of their last ten overall fixtures, and were so in their prior four appearances at this venue. They have also lost ten of their previous fourteen match-ups, and three of their preceding four at this stadium this current season.

On the other hand, Sheffield were unbeaten in seven of their previous eight overall matches, and have not lost a single game on the road this whole season.

Taking into account these observations, rightfully count on Sheffield United to avoid the loss at the least this Sunday.

However, take into account the performance of Norwich at their home, and their desperation to get back into track. Also, they do have the confidence of taking on a fellow newly-promoted squad, as opposed to the experienced ones who have been in the Premier League for quite some time.

In addition, do consider the fact that Norwich have never failed to score in front of the home crowd against this opponent. They have also scored twice or more against the Blades in seven of their previous eleven encounters at this ground.

Considering all these factors in total, the scope for BTTS is very high this match-day in the PL.
