Norwich vs Manchester United Prediction & Match Preview

Norwich vs Manchester United
England – FA Cup
Date: Saturday, 27 June 2020
Kick-off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Carrow Road.

FA Cup is the last thing in the mind of the Canaries as well as their fans at the moment. After an inspiring campaign in the Championship the past season, the team had secured promotion to the top flight. But here, they failed to replicate their earlier form.

As of now, the team is placed dead-last in the table, and they surely will have to deliver flawless performances in the remaining handful of games in order to avoid getting the boot. As such, they certainly are not going to treat this upcoming match-up as a must-win one.

Moreover, they are taking on the reinvigorated Red Devils, who are determined to conquer anything that comes across them. Soon they will witness arch-rivals Liverpool lifting the league, and to save face, the Devils will at least need the FA Cup.

By all means, expect Manchester United, one of the best teams in the Premier League for a long time, and who also have a great h2h record against Norwich, to post a huge win this weekend.

Norwich vs Manchester United: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The last time these two took on each other, the Devils recorded a huge 4-0 win at home.
  • The Devils won 12 of the preceding 15 encounters between the two teams.
  • It’s been five years since the Canaries have won against this rival.
  • Nine of the former eleven wins at this venue had gone to the guests.
  • The last time these two met at this stadium, the visitors registered a 1-3 victory.

Norwich vs Manchester United: Prediction

The Canaries had overcome the Spurs (via penalties) in the previous round of the competition, whereas the Devils registered a 0-3 win on the road against Derby.

As things stand, the Red Devils are overwhelming favorites. Not only are they one of the best that PL has to offer, but they have been in terrific form for quite some time. Moreover, they are determined to get back to their glory days, especially with arch-rivals Liverpool being the best team in England right now.

Going on, the Canaries are placed dead-last in the league table at the moment, and they have relegation to be worried about, rather than a Quarter Final match-up of a competition, that includes the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Leicester etc.

Finally, the Devils have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival as well. Considering these stats, expect a convincing win for Manchester United this game week.
