LONDON – Sheffield United will take inspiration from Norwich City ahead of Saturday's trip to Everton, after their fellow promoted side beat champions Manchester City last weekend, Blades manager Chris Wilder said on Thursday.
An injury-ravaged Norwich ended Man City's 18-game unbeaten run in the Premier League with a shock 3-2 victory at Carrow Road and Wilder said that result and his own side's away form has given them hope that upsets are possible.
United have come from behind twice - at Bournemouth and Chelsea - with late goals to earn noteworthy draws and are currently 15th in the standings.
“When the likes of Norwich beat Manchester City and other results happen, it does give you a load of confidence that we can go anywhere and get a result,” Wilder told reporters.
“We've gone toe to toe with the likes of Chelsea and Leicester, which is really pleasing. We have more than held our own in terms of the play and we have to tighten up in certain areas and not give daft goals away and put teams to bed.
