Are Norwich the Worst Team in the Premier League?

After twenty-nine games played, the Premier League table doesn’t lie and Norwich City have just twenty-one points on the board which leaves them well adrift of safety.

Six points to be precise, although it’s hard to judge the Canaries when they return to action after lockdown and perhaps we can see them rally and make a fist of staying up.

After all, Daniel Farke’s side enjoyed a 1-0 win over Leicester City shortly before the enforced postponement of all top-flight fixtures before knocking Tottenham Hotspur out of the FA Cup on penalties.

Is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a Brilliant Football Manager?

The words Sack and Race have been following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer around since he was installed as the temporary manager of Manchester United and it’s true that awarding the Norwegian a permanent contract seemed like a bad move considering there was an immediate downturn in form.

However, why don’t you feast on the fact that the fortunes of the Red Devils have improved massively since a home defeat against Burnley on 22 January, with United having embarked on an unbeaten run which currently spans eleven matches.

United are firmly in the conversation when it comes to a top four finish in the Premier League and they sit just three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, with Solskjaer also looking for his side to win silverware this season in the form of the FA Cup and Europa League.

What Happened When Norwich Played United This Season?

United hold a 7-1 aggregate lead over their opponents after two matches played this season, with the Red Devils claiming a 3-1 win at Carrow Road before performing a demolition job on the same opponents at Old Trafford to win by a 4-0 scoreline.

This suggests that there’s a chasm between the two teams and this match will be played a few weeks into the football season which means that United are unlikely to be caught cold as they pursue this piece of silverware.

What Are the Best Bets for Norwich v Manchester United?

We are aiming to keep things fairly simple with our recommended bets for the FA Cup clash between Norwich City and Manchester United.

Firstly, we are going to back United to win the match in ninety minutes. They have twenty-four more points than their opponents in the top flight and will have the sharp-shooting Marcus Rashford back in action.

Secondly, we think there are likely to be three or more goals scored considering there have been four in each of the two matches between these sides this season.

Finally, we think correct score backers could be along the right lines if they back the 3-1 correct score in favour of United, with 12/1 seeming like a decent shout bearing in mind that this was the scoreline when the teams met earlier this season in the Premier League fixture.
