Norwich City coach Daniel Farke will still be without three first-team players against Sheffield United at Carrow Road on Sunday.

The German has been plagued by injury problems all season but is starting to get some of his first-team squad back from the treatment room.

Centre-back Timm Klose is set to miss the majority of the season due to a knee injury but confirmed last month his recovery is going well.

Striker Josip Drmic, who joined the club on a free contract in the summer, is still nursing a thigh issue and he could miss the next six weeks of action.

Veteran Grant Hanley also remains on the sidelines but could return before the festive fixtures start later this month.

Midfielder Alexander Tettey could return to the starting XI after he started the midweek defeat to Southampton on the bench.

Striker Teemu Pukki is set to lead the line again, meaning Todd Cantwell and Onel Hernandez will support him in attack.

After seeing his side lose on Thursday to Newcastle United, Sheffield United coach Chris Wilder is set to make changes against the Canaries.

Forward duo David McGoldrick and Lys Mousset both started the game on the bench but should return for the trip to Norfolk.

Mousset could be one to watch this weekend, having scored five goals in the Premier League this season.

Wilder has a fully-fit squad to choose from as his side try to climb back into the top six this week. Thursday’s defeat leaves them ninth in the table but they remain five points above the bottom three.

Norwich remain in the bottom three and are now four points from safety after losing to Southampton at St Mary’s.

Sunday’s clash will be the first ever meeting between the pair in the Premier League.

The Blades have an excellent record against Norwich at Carrow Road as the South Yorkshire outfit are unbeaten at there since December 2010.
