Reason For Sheffield United vs Norwich Predictions

  • Six of Sheffield United’s last seven Premier League home games have seen fewer than three goals.
  • Sheffield United have conceded just 25 league goals this season, second only to Liverpool in the defensive charts.
  • Norwich have seen fewer than three goals in nine of their 14 Premier League away days.
  • Norwich have scored just six goals league goals away from home this season, while the Blades have averaged 1.14 goals per home game.

Blades push for unexpected European qualification

With both Sheffield United and Norwich enjoying continued FA Cup success in midweek, both teams’ attentions now turn towards their very different Premier League aims. The Blades are focusing on trying to clinch an unlikely spot in Europe, while the Canaries are desperately struggling against the rising tide of relegation.

Chris Wilder’s side come into this match 8th in the table, just five points adrift of the Premier League top four and already sitting on their pre-season aim of 40 points. This comes after a 1-1 draw with Brighton made it three matches unbeaten for the hosts, so Bramall Lane is a very happy place to be right now.

Bramall Lane itself has been host to six wins, three draws and five defeats in the Premier League this season, and the vast majority of their overall success has stemmed from some fantastic defensive organisation. Only Liverpool (20) have conceded fewer goals than Sheffield United (25) this season, although their 29 goals scored at the other end does leave them with the 6th worst attacking record.

Norwich primed for relegation despite recent victory

One of the teams below them in the scoring charts is Norwich, with their narrow victory at home to Leicester last weekend taking their goals tally to 25 for the season. This victory ended a run of four winless matches, but the Canaries remain rooted to the bottom of the table and six points from safety.

Just six of Norwich’s meagre tally of goals have come away from Carrow Road, too, and they have failed to score in four of their last five Premier League away days. Considering they’re coming up against a fantastic defensive outfit, the signs aren’t looking promising for the visitors.

Goals at a premium at Bramall Lane

Indeed, we’re expecting a low scoring affair here. Six of Sheffield United’s last seven Premier League home games have seen fewer than three goals, and while five of Norwich’s 14 away days this season have been high scoring, this has largely been due their defensive record. Since the hosts have averaged just 1.14 goals per home game, we’re not predicting a lot of goals from Sheffield United. For this reason, backing Under 2.5 Goals looks a great option.

We are backing the hosts to take the three points though. They have won three of their last four meetings with Norwich and come into this game in high spirits. With Norwich averaging just 0.43 goals per away game and the Blades so solid defensively, we’re going for a 1-0 correct score prediction.
