Norwich – Sunderland Predictions and Preview
- Aiming for a third promotion in five years, Norwich may yet build further on their reputation as a ‘yo-yo club’, after a 3-2 victory over Millwall extended their unbeaten run to five games (W4, D1). In turn, they overtook the Lions into the top-six, after what was the second occasion within that run where the Canaries fought back from a goal down to win.
- That only further highlights their newfound resilience under David Wagner since his appointment in January. And as a promotion veteran (with Huddersfield in 2017), the former American international knows what it will take to make himself the ninth different Canaries manager to see a divisional change at any level of English football across the past 30 years.
- After their worst second-tier home defeat in that same period last Saturday (1-5 vs Stoke), Sunderland must improve drastically if they are to get a third straight H2H away win. The Wearsiders collapsed horrifically against the Potters, conceding four second-half goals for the second time this term to put their own promotion aspirations in serious jeopardy.
- Manager Tony Mowbray fumed at their “lack of bravery in keeping the ball”, and further punishment then came in midweek, when West Brom beat Wigan to displace Sunderland in the top-ten. Just one away league win in 2023 (D2, L2) bodes poorly, though with Sunderland scoring last beyond the hour mark in all of those trips, they could well have the final word.
- Players to watch: Gabriel Sara is fast becoming a lucky charm for Norwich, after netting vs Millwall for his third straight strike to prove decisive. Meanwhile, Alex Pritchard – a former Canaries man and one of David Wagner’s key midfielders during Huddersfield’s PL days – got Sunderland’s consolation goal last week, meaning that all three of his strikes this term have arrived between the 55th-62nd minute.
- Hot streak: Each of Norwich’s last eight home wins have seen one half deliver exactly two goals for the Canaries.
