Kick-off: 1400, 08/12/2019
Stadium: Carrow Road
Norwich and Sheffield United both suffered frustrating Premier League defeats in midweek but had previously impressed since the international break.
The Canaries and the Blades also produced a couple of entertaining encounters when in the Championship last term, which produced seven goals.
We reckon 4/5 for over 2.5 goals at Carrow Road is the way to go with our initial Norwich vs Sheff Utd prediction.
A Look At Norwich City’s Betting Odds
Norwich were made to pay for starting sluggishly at Southampton on Wednesday, with Saints capitalising on set-piece opportunities to lead 2-0 at the break.
Teemu Pukki pulled one back during a second-half recovery, but City had left themselves too much to do.
Daniel Farke declared: “I would be concerned if we didn’t show any reaction, but this was a great reaction.
“I am just annoyed with the first half that we did not stick to our guns.
“We now have a home game and if we carry on in the way we finished this game, then we have every chance of a win.
“It is not like Southampton played us out of the park, we were just bullied.”
The Canaries had previously put a poor run of results behind them when winning 2-0 at Everton and then drawing 2-2 with Arsenal here, so they do have the character to respond again.
Looking at the Norwich vs Sheff Utd odds, there is plenty of appeal in 13/4 for a score draw here.
Last Norwich line-up: Krul, Aarons, Byram, Godfrey, Zimmermann, Hernandez, Cantwell, Trybull, McLean, Amadou, Pukki.
A Look At Sheffield United’s Betting Odds
Sheffield United saw their seven-match unbeaten run come to an end when beaten 2-0 at home by Newcastle on Thursday night, but that scoreline does not tell the full story.
The Blades had 73 per cent of possession and more than twice the number of attempts on goal than their opponents, but came up against an inspired Martin Dubravka.
Jonjo Shelvey’s 70th-minute clincher was also shrouded in controversy, as the home defenders stopped in reaction to an offside flag, only for that to be overruled by VAR.
“Being critical of my players, they should have played right until the end – and we do need to learn from it,” declared Chris Wilder.
“But the linesman needs to learn to keep his flag down. If I’m a defender and the flag goes up and you see it, you stop. That’s a natural reaction.”
Wilder will urge his players to respond at Carrow Road and they do still have an unbeaten away record to protect, having secured one win and six draws on the road.
It was 2-2 when they visited this venue in January and 12/1 for a repeat of that scoreline completes our Norwich vs Sheff Utd betting tips.
Last Sheff Utd line-up: Henderson, Baldock, Stevens, O’Connell, Basham, Egan, Fleck, Lundstram, Norwood, McBurnie, Sharp.
