Sunderland
    Norwich

      Tip Reasoning

      The newly promoted Norwich put in a pretty good showing last weekend when they hosted Crystal Palace, and the 3-1 loss they suffered didn’t do them much justice at all.

      Norwich were actually the more dangerous side for the majority of the match, controlling possession and getting shots away. Unfortunately, Palace showed some clinical finishing, and Cabaye’s vision undid them in the end.

      But they will certainly take some positives away from the game against Crystal Palace. They were unlucky not to level things up when Jerome’s goal was controversially ruled out due to a high boot. If that goal had stood then maybe things would have been different.

      Sunderland didn’t put in such a good showing. Last season’s relegation candidates certainly staked their claim to that unwanted title with their opening match.

      Within 25 minutes of beginning their campaign they were 3-0 down to Leicester City thanks to some downright calamitous defending.

      The match eventually finished 4-2, but some would say that that scoreline is flattering to Sunderland, such was the poorness of their performance.

      This is definitely grounds for backing Norwich for Saturday’s match, and the head to head results between the sides reinforces that.

      Norwich haven’t lost against Sunderland in any of their last 4 games, and have won 3, drawn 2, and lost 1 of their last 6 Premier League meetings.

      Sunderland just don’t seem to be able to do anything right at the moment, and were fortunate to be saved from relegation last season to be honest. Their defending is simply atrocious, and this becomes a real problem when they fail to find the back of the net.

      We think that Norwich will get the win on Saturday, but they are a newly promoted side going into an away game. For this reason, we’re taking some insurance out and backing a Norwich Win (Draw No Bet) at odds of 1/1.
