NOR vs SHF Dream11: Norwich City and Sheffield United both look to bounce back from defeats in the Premier League mid-week fixtures as they clash at Carrow Road on Sunday evening (IST).
Norwich suffered a 2-1 defeat away at Southampton in what was a six-pointer for both the teams. The Canaries, as a result, dropped down to 19th, while the Saints moved ahead of them on the points table. Sheffield, meanwhile, had a horror show at home as they went down 0-2 against Steve Bruce's Newcastle United. However, the Bramall Lane side stayed in the top half of the table and could move to within one point off 5th placed Tottenham Hotspur with a win in this game.
Host: Norwich City
Visitors: Sheffield United
Competition: Premier League
Match Venue: Carrow Road
Match Timing: Sunday, December 08, @07:30 PM
Norwich City: As mentioned above, the Canaries lost 2-1 away against Southampton. Norwich are now with one win in the last 10 games, seven of which ended in defeats.
Sheffield United: Suffered a 0-2 defeat at home to Newcastle United. This was Sheffield's 4th home defeat of the season.
This is the kind of game where opponents will perhaps adopt defence first approach, considering the stakes, especially for the Norwich City, who could do with a win here. A close affair we expect, here. That said, Sheffield are being seen slightly favourite to get the win here, due to their good form, and better position on the points table.
