Norwich City were involved in a tough clash with Premier League side Chelsea in the midweek FA Cup third-round replay with the Canaries forcing extra-time thanks to a goal in the fourth minute of stoppage time. With the Blues down to nine men following two sendings off in extra time, both sides counted down the seconds until the inevitable penalty shoot-out and it was the Premier League side who prevailed in the end to earn for themselves a place in the fourth round of the competition.

The Canaries have just three days to recover from this marathon clash and they have another tough assignment ahead of them when they entertain Championship promotion hopefuls Sheffield United on Saturday afternoon. Daniel Farke's men have been enjoying some decent results of late in their league campaign with their last Championship outing ending in a 1-0 win at Bristol City. Indeed the Canaries have dropped just two points in their last four league outings and we expect them to give a good account of themselves when they welcome Sheffield United to Carrow Road this weekend.

Sheffield United remain in the top-six in the Championship table, however following an excellent first-half of the campaign their form has dipped alarmingly with four defeats, four draws and just a single win from their last nine league games. This certainly isn't the sort of form which earns promotion and Chris Wilder will doubtless be demanding better things when his side head to East Anglia on Saturday afternoon.

In all honesty, we don't expect him to get it. The Blades were expected to comfortably dispose of neighbours Sheffield Wednesday in last weekend's 'Steel City' derby, however a disappointing and uninspired goal-less draw was the final outcome at Bramall Lane and we expect worse to come for United this weekend with our prediction being a low-scoring Norwich City victory in front of their home fans.
