Last Saturday the Blades suffered yet another defeat which leaves them at the bottom of the Premier League table with just one point from 10 games. Eddie Nketiah scored the opening three goals, followed by a Fabio Vieira penalty, which was conceded by Norwood. The match concluded with Takehiro Tomiyasu scoring his first goal for Arsenal, resulting in a convincing 5-0 win for the home team.
The captain for the afternoon, Oli Norwood, reflected on what was yet again a poor performance and result for Sheffield United.
“We’ve got to really dig in, have a look in the mirror at ourselves individually, because it’s not good enough,” Norwood said on SUTV.
Despite the challenging situation, the traveling fans continued to support manager Paul Heckingbottom by singing his name. Unfortunately, they are yet to witness their team secure a victory since their return to the top-flight, and they currently have only one point in their league campaign.
“It is very disappointing. We go in at half-time 1-0 down. Second half it’s difficult to really come and speak and say too much other than it’s not acceptable to keep losing the way that we are.
“It is easy to stand and say ‘we stick together through the hard times’, it’s easy to say that, but now we’ve got to show it.”
The Blades are back in action this weekend when they host Wolverhampton Wanderers, many believe this could be Paul Heckingbottom’s final game in charge if they do not claim three points.
