Harry Redknapp has included Oliver Norwood and Cameron Archer in his team of the week following their contributions to Sheffield United’s 2-1 victory over Wolves. Norwood’s “unbelievable” penalty in the 100th minute, under intense pressure, earned him praise for his courage. Archer’s quality finish has also earned him a spot in the lineup alongside other notable players like Anthony Gordon from Newcastle and Jeremy Doku from Manchester City.
The former Premier League manager heaped praise on the Blades skipper Norwood:
“What a penalty from Oliver Norwood to get Sheffield United the win, unbelievable! To hit it with that much power, that late in the game, that takes a lot of courage.
“He’s a good, experienced pro and has been in this side for quite a few years. He’s always got good technique though; he never panics with the ball at his feet.” [BetVictor]
Redknapp also mentioned that Cameron Archer “has to be in the side” after scoring a stunning goal to open the scoring last Sunday.
“He was very highly rated when he was younger, this young lad has a lot of talent. That goal might just give him and Sheffield United a real lift moving forward.”
Sheffield United need to find a way to carry confidence from their first win of the season down to the South coast this weekend.
