Sheffield United

Norwich City welcome Sheffield United to Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon for what should be a gripping EFL Championship encounter. The Canaries are currently in second place in the Championship table, with the Blades also pushing hard for promotion in fourth. Should United win, they will leap above Norwich on goal difference, so there is plenty on the line for both teams this weekend in Norfolk.

Norwich City vs Sheffield United Betting Tips: Form Guide

Canaries Trying To Fly

Daniel Farke’s Norwich City team are clinging onto second place in the Championship table, but only just. Their recent form has not been great, and last weekend’s 3-1 win over Birmingham City at Carrow Road was their first victory after a run of five games in all competitions with no wins. They will want to back up that win over the Blues by beating the Blades, especially as there are two tough games on the horizon. Next weekend, Farke’s team have to travel to table-topping Leeds United, and the week sees them welcome Ipswich Town to Carrow Road for the East Anglian derby.

One player who is well worth keeping an eye on, if you are looking for Norwich City vs Sheffield United betting tips for today, is Canaries striker Teemu Pukki. The Finland international has scored 16 goals in the Championship this season, the second-joint-highest tally in the competition. Overall, Norwich are the second-highest goal scorers in the league, having netted 52 times, second only to West Brom, who have scored 57 times. That bodes well for their push for promotion, but they must beat rivals like the Blades if they are serious about reaching the Premier League.

Blades Battling For Promotion

Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United team are in a run of very testing games at the moment, the results of which could come to define their season. This weekend’s game is the first of a seven-match run of games in which they will face all three of the teams who currently sit above them in the table. As well as those games against Norwich, Middlesbrough and West Bromwich Albion, the Blades will also face Bolton Wanderers, Aston Villa and Reading, before the derby with Sheffield Wednesday in early March. Wilder will know that if his team can win the majority of those next seven games, they will be in a really strong position when it comes to achieving promotion.

United are currently in fourth place in the Championship table, just three points behind the Canaries. They actually have a marginally better goal difference than Norwich too, so a victory would see them overhaul their weekend opponents. Wilder’s team are in good form too, having enjoyed a strong Christmas period. They have won four out of their last six games, though they head into this clash with the Canaries on the back of a 1-0 defeat away at Swansea.

Norwich City vs Sheffield United Prediction: Narrow Away Win

Our prediction for this game is that it well finish up with narrow victory for the Blades. Chris Wilder’s team have been in good form over the last couple of months, and look like being strong contenders for an automatic promotion place when the business end of the seasons rolls around. The fact that their fierce Yorkshire rivals Leeds United are top of the league will also be providing the men from the Steel City with extra inspiration. We suspect that this game’s momentum will swing back and forth, but the Blades will take the three points in the end. Billy Sharp my well step up with a late winners for the South Yorkshire side. City’s Teemu Pukki is worth keeping an eye too, if you fancy a bet on the game’s goalscorers.
