Sheffield United continue to surge on this season, with the Blades into the automatic promotion spots following an impressive 4-0 win over Reading at the weekend, a result that cements Chris Wilder’s side as a real automatic promotion contender.
Wilder’s squad continue to deliver with midfielder Oliver Norwood excelling with two goals and seven assists in 30 appearances so far this season.
However, with the likes of Billy Sharp and John Fleck often stealing the limelight, is Norwood one of Sheffield United’s most underrated players?
“Is he underrated?
“I’d say he was always thought of as one of their key performers.
“He was a relatively big signing in the summer and he’s played when fit.
“I don’t think many in the game underrate him at all.”
“He’s one of the most underrated players in the Championship.
“Norwood is up there with some of the best midfielders in the league this season, and he’ll be key in taking Sheffield United towards the Premier League.
“He’s crucial to their promotion push.”
“His career stagnated since his move to Brighton, but he is a quality player for Championship level.
“He’s playing a huge role in United’s promotion push this season and long may it continue.”
“He is a class player for the Championship, and a lot of his work goes unnoticed.
“Having two successive promotions under his belt, too, gives his place in the side some gravitas within the team.
“He’s the lynch-pin the to the Blades’ midfield.”
