Are Norwich City Bankers to Go Down?

Norwich City’s situation in the Premier League looks pretty pretty bleak. They are rock bottom of the table and their return of twenty-one points from twenty-nine games is significantly lower than any other team in the division.

Daniel Farke did an excellent job steering the Canaries into the top flight last season by winning the Championship ahead of clubs such as Sheffield United, Leeds and Aston Villa, although the German has had his work cut out this term.

The team’s form at Carrow Road has been OK, with four wins and three draws although they’ve hardly been able to buy a point on the road and that explains their current plight.

However, there are enough games for Norwich to scramble out of trouble and a win against Leicester followed by an FA Cup triumph at Spurs gives the supporters some hope of surviving.

Could Southampton Be Sucked Into Trouble Again?

It’s been a streaky season for the Saints who began the campaign in a promising fashion before losing their way and going on an eight-match winless run which included a 9-0 home tonking at the hands of Leicester City.

There was a marvellous revival during the winter months which saw Southampton collect many points, although four of the past five top flight encounters ended in defeat and they remain an unpredictable team.

What Happened When The Teams Met at St Marys’s?

On Wednesday 4 December, Southampton recorded a rare home win when beating the Canaries by a 2-1 scoreline. Goals from Danny Ings and Ryan Bertrand saw the Saints race into a 2-0 lead before Teemu Pukki reduced the arrears and it was a fairly even game.

Indeed, Ings and Pukki have both enjoyed a successful season in front of goal and it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see the two strikers find the net in this clash, although Norwich will surely look for a tightly-fought 1-0 win.

What Are the Best Bets for Norwich v Southampton?

We suspect the game will be a low-scoring one. Norwich definitely changed their approach in the final few matches before the lockdown, with six of their past seven matches featuring two goals or less and that includes a slightly unfortunate 1-0 defeat against Liverpool.

We actually think the Canaries are also worth a small wager at the prices and they will have been able to take stock of their situation and know that an immediate victory could get the back in the picture.
