Norwich City v Sheffield United


Norwich boss Daniel Farke will assess the fatigue levels of his players ahead of the Sky Bet Championship visit of Sheffield United.

The Canaries took Chelsea to extra-time and penalties in their FA Cup third-round replay on Tuesday night, so the likes of Alex Tettey, Wes Hoolahan and Marco Stiepermann could be in contention after coming off the bench at Stamford Bridge.

New loan signingMarcus Edwards is expected to be involved, following his loan move from Tottenham, while fit-again forward Marley Watkins (knee) is an option and midfielder Tom Trybull (back) will be assessed.

Striker Cameron Jerome has left for Derby, while club captain Russell Martin joined Rangers on loan and forward Steven Naismith moved to Hearts for the rest of the season.

Sheffield United’s new signing Ricky Holmes is hoping to be included in boss Chris Wilder’s plans.

Holmes, signed for an undisclosed fee from Charlton this week, plus recent arrivals Ryan Leonard, James Wilson and Lee Evans are all in contention.

Striker Ched Evans (ankle) and defender Keiron Freeman (knee) are closing in on their returns and could feature in next week’s FA Cup tie against Preston.
