- Old Trafford
- Manchester United have won just one of their last seven games.
- Norwich have picked up four points from the last six available.
- United won the reverse fixture 1-0.
- The Canaries have lost four of their last six, but only two of those losses were by more than one goal.
United bidding to reignite European push
Norwich kept their slim hopes of avoiding the drop alive last weekend with a 1-0 win over relegation rivals Burnley but now face a daunting trip to Manchester United on Saturday.
The Canaries remain bottom of the Premier League table and are seven points adrift of safety, but they have managed four points from their last two games and now could be a good time to head to Old Trafford.
United’s top four hopes are fading and they have managed just one win in their last five in the league and one in their last seven across all competitions.
Norwich can keep it respectable
There is no value in backing a straightforward home win and with United in poor form that just doesn’t appeal.
Norwich have scored in five of their last seven away games and both teams to score is tempting, but at a slightly bigger price backing the visitors with a +2 handicap looks a good option.
United have only won one of their last seven and that victory came by a one-goal margin, while they could only muster a 1-0 win at Carrow Road in the reverse fixture back in December.
The Red Devils have also scored just one goal in their last three games and looked a team low in confidence in a 1-0 loss at Everton last time out, and with Norwich scrapping for survival they can at least avoid a humbling in Manchester.
United may just edge it
As mentioned earlier, there is some appeal in a both teams to score bet and that is reflected in a 2-1 win for the hosts in the correct score prediction.
United have only scored more than two goals in one of their last 10 at home and Norwich have scored exactly one goal in four of their last six away. Ralf Rangick’s men may be out of sorts but there is a gulf in quality between these two sides so a home win still looks the most likely result but Norwich can at least get a goal and avoid a thrashing.
- Four of Manchester United’s last six Premier League games have ended with both sides scoring
