Norwich City’s defeat to Sheffield United has left many supporters with a sour, yet familiar, taste in the mouth.

Billy Sharp's close-range header in the first-half proved decisive as the Blades continued their march on the European qualification places.

Ultimately, that is a microcosm of their season. City dominated possession and had more shots at goal, but lacked cutting edge in their efforts.

Despite the loss, the situation at the bottom of the Premier League table remains the same for Farke's men.
