Sheffield United vs Norwich Match Preview
Wilder’s men secured a 1-1 draw at home against Brighton the last match-day. It was their fourth unbeaten game in a row, and also was the seventh such fixture from the past eight attempts.
This consistent form has allowed them to be in a position where they are able to challenge for a spot in the prestigious Champions League. For a team, that used to be in the Championship just the last season, this has been beyond wildest dreams.
Still, with just ten more match-days to go till the end of the campaign, the Blades will give all they can on the pitch, to elevate their club to one amongst the elites in Europe.
In the meantime, Daniel Farke’s men recorded a 1-0 win at home against Leicester. The fact that they are deep in the relegation zone has kicked the team into action.
However, with just a handful of games remaining till the end of the contest, the Canaries have a mountain to climb. And to pile on, they have some tough opponents coming up shortly in their schedule.

Sheffield United vs Norwich Prediction
The Blades are at home, and they are hosting the worst away team in the whole competition. Not only are Farke’s men the worst on the road, but they are placed dead-last in the table as well.
To be precise, the Canaries have had a single win away from home this whole season, and so far they have scored a total of six goals in such games.
On the other hand, to provide extra motivation for the hosts, Wilder’s men are going after a spot in Europe’s premier competition, and they have the confidence of an extra match in hand.
Furthermore, the team is on an unbeaten run of five fixtures (of which four were losses), and they have lost just against Liverpool, Manchester City, and Newcastle since September. At home, since September of 2019, they have experienced defeat only at the hands of the Reds, and Newcastle.
In addition, the Blades had won the reverse fixture, and had won three of the prior four h2h clashes as well. Moreover, they had also scored twice or more in the former four such match-ups.
Taking all these information into account, it’s clear that Sheffield United are firm favorites for the win this Saturday.
