Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Sheffield United will look to escape the relegation zone when they welcome Bournemouth to their Bramall Lane on Matchday 13. The Blades have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team losing to Arsenal, beating Wolves, while sharing the spoils with Brighton. Sheffield United are eyeing their second home win of the season, but they will have to do it without Rhian Brewster, Tom Davies, John Egan, and Rhys Norrington-Davies. Both Anel Ahmedhodzic and Oliver McBurnie are major doubts.
The Cherries, meanwhile, aim to build on back-to-back wins over Burnley and Newcastle United, but beating the Blades on the road is easier said than done. Anyhow, both teams to score betting option should be considered as both sides will go for a win in Saturday’s face-off. The likes of Alex Scott, Tyler Adams, Emiliano Marcondes, and Ryan Fredericks miss out with injuries for the visiting team.
Highlighted Player (Oliver Norwood):
Oliver Norwood is a Reading midfielder who began his youth career at Manchester United. Norwood made his debut for the reserve team against Middlesbrough in November, 2007, but he did not get a chance to play for the first team. After ending his loan spell with Coventry City in 2012, the 180-cm-tall midfielder signed a contract with Huddersfield Town.
Oliver Norwood scored eight goals in 80 league appearances for the club between 2012 and 2014. Later in 2014 he joined Reading for an undisclosed fee and he made his debut for the Royals against Nottingham Forest on 23 August, 2014.
Norwood was born in Burnley, England and he has six caps for England U16 team. He played three games for the U17 team as well, but he then decided to represent Northern Ireland as his heritage is Northern Irish. Norwood made his debut for the Green and White Army on 11 August, 2010, in a 2-0 loss to Montenegro. He replaced Sammy Clingan in the second half of the match.
Highlighted Team (Bournemouth):
Bournemouth are a professional football club that was formed back in 1890. The Cherries secured promotion to the Premier League in the 2015/2016 season, with the team making it to the English top flight for the first time ever.
Bournemouth play their home games at Dean Court and the capacity of the stadium is 11,469.
The Cherries enjoyed a very successful season on their Premier League debut, with the team beating the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United in the national championship. Glenn Murray scored the winner for Bournemouth in the 1-0 win over the capital club at Stamford Bridge and that is probably the greatest victory in the club’s history.
Bournemouth have been participating in the FA Cup since 1913, but they have yet to win the trophy in the prestigious competition. It has to be noted that the club’s original name Boscombe Athletic Football Club was changed to Bournemouth back in 1923 as the club owners wanted the Cherries to be more representative of the district.
