NOR Vs SHF Dream11 Team Prediction And Match Report: Relegation zone slumped Norwich City face another stiff test in gameweek 16.
Sunday comes bearing with it yet another chance for Norwich City to try and imbed some semblance in their ongoing campaign of the Premier League. After a fiery start, one which saw them impress even with their engrossing brand of attacking football, the side have severely gone off the boil to wobble their way into 19th place in the points tally.
While the defensive aberrations have continued to remain intact, the side have regressed in attack to face the wrath of their disgruntled showings. They have managed to muster up a mere 3 wins in 15 matches, a number which clearly emotes to how lacklustre and distraught the side have been this season, performances which have seen them face severe backlash from their ardent supporters.
And their previous 2-1 defeat against Southampton was perhaps the most damaging one till date with the side being hammered by a side who like them are also fighting to escape the relegations spots. Missing out on the three points on the day saw them further sink deeper into the bottom three spots and see Southampton open up a 4 point lead over them, a match from which the ramifications from the side were aplenty.
And when they take on Sheffield United today, they’ll be aware that things are only bound to further stumble. In Sheffield United, they are coming across a side who make their way to the Premier League this season only but have been extremely quick to adjust to the stringent level on competition prevelant here.
Where Norwich City are fighting a battle to squirm out of the last three, Sheffield United are currently in 9th place with their vigour, fight and character being lauded across the arena. However with a 2-0 defeat to Newcastle United the last time around, the side are now winless in their last 4 matches, a form they’;; be looking to overhaul come today.

NOR Vs SHF Dream11 Goal-Keeper
Although Sheffield United have made for an extremely disciplined and well organised defensive setup, their bygone contests have seen them lose their cohesion at the back to concede goals. And with this match set to be all about their defence and the home side’s attack, Dean Henderson will get the chance to indulge us in a slew of save points to see him come in for us for the day.
NOR Vs SHF Dream11 Defenders
They might have waned defensively recently but the acumen the visiting unit come imbued with in their backline is there for all to see. This is a side which has let in a mere 15 goals all across the course of the season, showing reslliance and perseverance to shut out attacks to see us expose faith in a duo of picks from the side for this match.
George Baldock is more than a just a defensive pick for us with the defender always willing to gallop down the park and provide his ample support in the side’s attacking ambit to make him our first pick alongside Enda Stevens. Elsewhere from Norwich City we have our first player be brought in as well in the form of Jamal Lewis.
NOR Vs SHF Dream11 Midfielders
This is a simple match for Norwich City. If the side are going to have any chance of winning today, they’ll be requiring their attacking players to rediscover their penchant for the goal and imbibe in place an attacking display reminiscent of their travails in the opening exchanges of the season.
And if anyone is capable of doing that for them, it’s the duo of Todd Cantwell and Kenny McLean. Cantwell in particular has had a judicious season, one where’s he’s contributed the 4 goals to his side to become an instant selection for us for the day.
Elsewhere, from the other side of the section we have decided to immerse ourselves in the picks of an entire trivalent, one which as usual will begin with the diminutive John Lundstram, a player who is the heart of this Sheffield United side.CAM John Fleck comes in as well given his affinity to pop up with a goal or assist with Oliver Norwood coming in to partner him up as well for the clash.
NOR Vs SHF Dream11 Strikers
With 8 goals and 3 assists, Norwich City’s Teemu Pukki was the talk of the league at the start of the season before he, like his side started unravelling. However, he’s revelled us in displays akin to those which saw him being held in such high stature earlier to see us make him an instant pick for the tie from the side while from the other side, Oliver McBurnie comes in to complete our Dream 11 side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Lundstram will captain our side out for the day with Fleck being our vice-captain.
