Andy Murray gives predictions about Premier League clash

Premier League Predictions on the BBC website gathered Mark Lawrenson and Andy Murray, with former world no. 1 sharing his thoughts about the match between Norwich City and Sheffield United on Saturday. While giving the advantage to Sheffield United who has been in better form, Andy thinks Norwich will earn a draw in front of the home fans at Carrow Road, despite not being Sheffield United there since 2010.

Andy is currently enjoying time with his family (he became a father for the third time a couple of weeks ago) before starting preparations for the new season, heading to Sydney where Great Britain will battle against Belgium, Bulgaria and Moldova at the ATP Cup.

Following the second hip surgery this January, Andy started to work on the comeback and it was a rather impressive one, winning the doubles title at Queen's in June with Feliciano Lopez and switching focus on singles in the next couple of months.

Determined to make another strong push ahead of 2020, Andy embraced the Asian swing and had scored some wins in Zhuhai, Beijing and Shanghai before returning to Europe to enter his last ATP tournament of the year in Antwerp.

In Belgium, Murray grabbed five victories for the first ATP title since Dubai 2017, ousting Stan Wawrinka in the final after numerous obstacles in what had been one of the most emotional moments of his career. "Sheffield United slipped up at home to Newcastle in midweek but they are still unbeaten away in the league, although they have drawn six of their seven games on the road," Murray said.

"I am going to go for another draw for them here, although I am not really convinced by Norwich. The Canaries looked like they were turning a corner until they went to Southampton and lost on Wednesday, and they really need to start building some form at home soon."
