Manchester United vs Norwich: Man United has built a fortress in its territory and is currently undefeated in its last thirteen games here, in all competitions. Norwich struggling to recover even one point along the way this quarter, count on the hosts for their counterparts to run for their money.
Manchester United saw their two-game winning streak in the Premier League abruptly end by the Gunners who scored two goals with no response against them at Emirates Stadium last week. Although they recorded as many target shots as their enemies in this confrontation, the hosts were far from being clinical in each of their efforts and rightly returned home empty-handed.
With thirty-one points in the bag, the Red Devils currently rank fifth in the rankings.
On the other hand, Norwich has not yet touched the ground, to say the least. Their last game at home saw them keep Crystal Palace 1-1. While they were on the road, they were at the losing end of a 1-0 score against Aston Villa.
The guests have now not won in their last eight elite matches and have only accumulated four of the twenty-four possible points. Accumulating even more misery, Norwich is the worst team out of the group with seven losses in their last ten starts.
In addition, Manchester United has only stumbled once at home this season. Since four of his last five meetings with the Canary Islands have also seen the hosts win by a margin of two goals, Norwich can rule out any hope of winning in this one.
In addition, United has been a constant threat in the last third. So far, more than half of the thirty goals scored for them are the result of their confrontations in Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, Norwich has been too easy to break during his outings this quarter, and has already conceded sixteen goals away from home.
Taking into account that the hosts managed to align this enemy three times in the second leg, count on Manchester United to accumulate the goals this weekend.
