Sheffield United show second-half steel to complete Carrow Road comeback

Sheffield United came from behind to seal a 2-1 victory over struggling Norwich at Carrow Road.

The visitors bounced back from their first defeat in eight matches against Newcastle on Thursday with a determined and solid performance against a Norwich side who have not won at home since September.

Norwich took the lead through Alexander Tettey inside the opening half an hour after starting the match brightly.

However in the second half, it was Sheffield United who dominated. Enda Stevens’ header drew his side level with George Baldock firing home just three minutes later to put his side ahead.

The game was not without its moments of VAR controversy, with a red card for Chris Basham overruled and a lengthy delay over whether to award Sheffield United a goal, with both sets of fans expressing their displeasure at the new technology.

Daniel Farke’s side had slightly changed tactics from playing out from the back and looked to be playing more long balls towards Teemu Pukki, having previously struggled to get going in recent matches, especially the 2-0 defeat at Southampton on Wednesday.

United absorbed the early Norwich pressure without too much difficulty, although John Egan was forced into a last-ditch block to deny Pukki’s shot.
