Our football match prediction:
Leeds United will be looking to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of Wolverhampton and Burton Albion when they face Norwich City at their Elland Road on Matchday 45. The Whites need to pick up all three points from the match if they are to keep their hopes of booking their place in the play-offs alive, but Saturday’s football game against the Canaries will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. Norwich City missed out on a place in the play-offs and seeing that they are not regarded as good travelers, we predict that Leeds United will put an end to their three-game winless run in the league. You should have in mind that the Whites are eyeing their 15th home win of the season. As always, a man to watch in the home team will be Chris Wood, who has netted 25 goals to date.
Highligted Player (Liam Cooper):
Liam Cooper is a Scotland international, who was born in Kingston Upon Hull, England. Cooper was eligible to play for both England and Scotland, but he decided to represent the Scotts on the international stage. The Leeds United defender, who is capable of playing at left and centre back, received his first ever call-up for Scotland on 10 March 2016 for a friendly match against Denmark, but he did not make his debut for the senior team back then. Liam Cooper began his career at Hull City and, after spending several seasons on loan at Carlisle United and Huddersfield Town he joined Chesterfield in 2013. On 13 August, 2014, he signed a three-year deal with Leeds United for an undisclosed fee. Speaking of individual honours, Liam Cooper was named Young Player of the Year for the 2007/2008 season (Hull City). It has to be noted that he won Football League Two with Chesterfield in the 2013/2014 season.
Highlighted Team (Norwich City):
After spending only one season in the Premier League, Norwich City dropped to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. Norwich City are located in Norwich, Norfolk and they welcome their rivals at Carrow Road. The stadium was built and opened in 1935 and the capacity of the venues is 27,137 (all-seater). However the stadium’s record attendance is 43,984. The Canaries have won two League Cup trophies (1973, 1975) and their main rivals are Ipswich Town. The two teams have been facing each other in the East Anglian Derby since 1902. The colour of Norwich City’s home kit is yellow and green and that is the main reason why they are known as the Canaries. The likes of Kevin Keeland, Ian Culverhouse, Steve Bruce, Duncan Forbes, Mark Bowen, Darren Huckerby, Ian Crook, Martin Peters, Darren Eadier, Chris Sutton and Iwan Roberts are notable footballers who played for the Carrow Road outfit in the past.
