Manchester United vs Norwich Prediction

Manchester United had their two-match winning streak in the Premier League brought to an abrupt halt by the Gunners who slotted two unanswered goals past them at the Emirates Stadium last week. Despite recording as many shots on target as their foes in that clash, the hosts were far from clinical in each of their efforts, and deservedly made the trip back home empty-handed.

With thirty-one points in the bag, the Red Devils are currently holding on to the fifth spot on the ladder.

On the other hand, Norwich are yet to hit the ground running, to say the least. Their last clash at home saw them hold Crystal Palace to a 1-1 draw. While on the road, they were at the losing end of a 1-0 scorecard to Aston Villa.

The guests are now winless in their past eight clashes in the top flight and have garnered no more than four measly points from a possible twenty-four. Piling on even more misery, Norwich are the worst away side in the cluster with seven defeats from their past ten outings.

Moreover, Manchester United have stumbled just once at home this season. Given that four of their last five meetings with the Canaries have also seen the hosts win with a clear two-goal margin, Norwich can rule out of any hopes of picking up a win in this one.

Furthermore, United have been a constant threat in the final third. More than half of the thirty goals for them so far have come from their matchups at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, Norwich have been far too easy to breach in their outings this term, and have conceded sixteen goals already, away from home.

Taking into account that the hosts managed to slot three past this foe in the reverse fixture as well, count on Manchester United to rack up the goals tally this weekend.
