Enda Stevens back in contention for Sheffield United

Defender Enda Stevens will be back in the Sheffield United squad when they resume Premier League action against bottom club Norwich.

The left-back missed the FA Cup fifth-round win at Reading in midweek with a tight calf, but is expected to be restored to the starting line-up by Blades boss Chris Wilder.

John Fleck was also absent at the Madejski Stadium but the midfielder is also likely to face the Canaries.

Norwich could have defender Christoph Zimmermann in contention again following a hamstring problem.

Forward Teemu Pukki and midfielder Alex Tettey, both left on the bench for the midweek FA Cup penalty shoot-out victory at Tottenham, have recovered from illness and Emi Buendia should be fit following cramp.

Swiss centre-back Timm Klose is stepping up his recovery from a long-term knee injury while on-loan Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Fahrmann has been allowed to talk to other clubs as the German seeks regular football. Winger Onel Hernandez (knee) and full-back Sam Byram (hamstring) remain sidelined.

Sheffield United provisional squad: Henderson, Eastwood, Moore, Egan, Basham, O’Connell, Robinson, Jagielka, Retsos, Stevens, Fleck, Besic, Baldock, Norwood, Lundstram, Rodwell, Freeman, Berge, Mousset, Sharp, McBurnie, McGoldrick, Zivkovic

Norwich provisional squad: Krul, Aarons, Godfrey, Hanley, Lewis, Cantwell, Buendia, McLean, Duda, Tettey, Pukki, McGovern, Zimmermann, Rupp, Vrancic, Stiepermann, Trybull, Drmic, Idah
