The match is over.
Match day 10 of this season’s Premier League campaign sees Norwich welcome Man Utd to Carrow Road for the Sunday afternoon kick-off.
Norwich are sitting second from bottom of the Premier League with just seven points after nine matches and played out a goalless draw away to Bournemouth last weekend which made it a run of four games without a win. United also drew in their last game but were minutes away from recording a shock win over old foes Liverpool before Adam Lallana came off the bench to rescue a point as the game finished 1-1.
MAN UTD TO WIN AND BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE
United should be boosted by their good performance against the Champions League winners and league leaders on Sunday and will hope to pick up the three points in this one. Marcus Rashford’s first half opener was his first in the league since he scored the winner in a 1-0 home win over Leicester City on the 14th of September. The youngster will hope to make it two in two against the Canaries.
MATCH TO END WITH OVER 2.5 GOALS
United haven’t scored more than two goals since the 4-0 beating of Chelsea on the opening day of the season, however they will be facing the joint worst defensive record in the division, as Norwich have conceded 21 times so far this campaign.
UNITED TO WIN BY A ONE GOAL MARGIN
Norwich themselves have only scored once in their last four league games and will need to get the ball to their top goal scorer Teemu Pukki, who has six to his name so far this season to have any chance of getting something out of this match.
GAME TO END 1-2
Head to Head
These sides last met at Carrow Road in May 2016 where a Juan Mata goal gave the Red Devils a 1-0 win. Man Utd unsurprisingly have the better of the historical head to head by winning 31 of the last 51 games played between the sides both home and away in all competitions, the Canaries during that period have won just ten times and there have been 10 draws.
The match to end in a draw.
Norwich played out a goalless draw away to Bournemouth last weekend which gave them seven points from their opening nine games in the Premier League since returning to the top-flight this season. They are now on a four-game winless streak and will be hoping to pick something up out of this game. Coach Daniel Farke will have to do without the services of defenders Timm Klose, Christoph Zimmermann, and Grant Hanley who are all ruled out through injury.
Manchester United probably played their best match in the 1-1 draw with Liverpool on the weekend since their 4-0 win over Chelsea on the opening day of the season. Ole Gunner Solskjaer will be under pressure to pick up points in this one, but could have Paul Pogba back in time for the weekend. Jesse Lingard and Luke Shaw are also close to making a return from injury.
