Norwich vs. Manchester United: Solskjaer’s men favourites to pile further misery on Canaries



Norwich remain well and truly involved in an early relegation scrap after nine games of the Premier League season. They’ve won just twice since their promotion from the Championship last season, and picked up their first draw of the campaign in a goalless draw at Bournemouth last weekend.

They are, however, just three points behind Manchester United, who visit Carrow Road on Sunday afternoon.

The visitors are just 3/4 to win the game, with the hosts priced at 10/3. It’s currently 3/1 for a draw between the two sides.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side make the trip to Norwich on the back of a 1-1 draw with unbeaten Liverpool. Despite their contrasting starts to the season, the Red Devils may perhaps feel disappointed with the outcome. An 85th Adam Lallana equaliser condemned them to another poorly managed result.

They are now level with Aston Villa on the most points dropped from winning positions in the league this season. 

Norwich are 14/1 to come from behind and win the game on Sunday.

However, the visitors will undoubtedly be confident they can get on the scoresheet. Their hosts have the joint-worst defensive record in the league this season, conceding 21 goals along with Watford.

The Canaries kept just their first clean sheet of the league against Bournemouth last time out. They are priced at 9/2 to keep another one against United.

Just three points separate the sides going into the encounter. And both have scored just ten goals from their nine league games so far.

Marcus Rashford has four Premier League goals to his name this season. He’s been the main man for providing their goals in a miserable campaign so far.

The England forward is 4/1 to score anytime. His fellow youngster Daniel James has also been impressive in front of goal. The Welsh winger has three league goals, and is currently 13/2 to score the opener this weekend.

Norwich meanwhile have been heavily reliant on goalscoring sensation Teemu Pukki. The Finland international is currently 11/2 to score the game’s first goal. He has six for the season, but hasn’t scored since that famous win over Manchester City.

United may just have one eye on their midweek Carabao Cup fixture with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, but will certainly be looking for all three points against Norwich.

The hosts meanwhile have Brighton and Watford up next – two sides also struggling to find their feet. But having already beaten Man City at Carrow Road, they will unquestionably be giving their red rivals a similarly tough time.
