Man Utd vs Norwich: Canaries to be grounded at Old Trafford
Norwich City head into this game looking to win three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since 1993.
However, with Wayne Rooney – who already has nine league goals to his name this season – and Javier Hernandez set to return to the starting line-up, this could be a long afternoon for Paul Lambert and his men…
United have equalled their club record by winning their previous 18 Premier League matches, while Norwich are looking to build on victories against Bolton Wanderers and Sunderland.
It’s a formidable task, but they can take encouragement from the fact United have had 85 shots against them already this season – more than anyone else in the Premier League – and that they have kept just two clean sheets in their previous ten games.
Norwich are 6/1 to take a point from the game but, with United scoring 14 goals in their first three home games, it’s hard to look beyond United at 1/6.
United have netted all 13 of their Premier League goals against Norwich within the first 60 minutes of the game and they are 2/1 to score most of their goals in the first half.
Meanwhile, United to lead at half time but end with a draw is at 28/1, which may be worth a long-odds punt in light of their midweek capitulation against FC Basel.
Nani has scored in his last two Premier League games and is 5/1 to be the first goalscorer, while Rooney has scored ten goals in his last six Premier League starts and is 5/2 to score first.
