A last-gasp Ryan Giggs goal secured three undeserved points for Manchester United when they visited Carrow Road in February, so ensuring that Sir Alex Ferguson’s men completed a league double over the Canaries last term.

However, Norwich, undefeated in their last five outings in all competitions, will feel they have an opportunity to avenge February’s reverse, despite BetVictor’s enormous 13/2 odds chalked about a home win.

Not surprisingly, table-topping United arrive priced as bet365’s overwhelming 4/9 favourites, having failed to score only once this term and rattling in 14 goals away from home already. No wonder City are 15/2 with Paddy Power to retain a clean sheet.

Yet in the continued absence of Nemanja Vidic, the visitors have hardly been solid at the back this season, keeping only two clean sheets themselves – City boast four – and allowing their opponents to score first on seven occasions. It’s a record which adds appeal to bet365’s 21/10 odds for the Canaries to open the scoring and to Ladbrokes’ persuasive-looking 5/1 for Norwich to leave the field at half-time in the lead.

William Hill’s 13/10 for the game’s opening goal to arrive after the 31st minute has attracted steady support, as has Stan James’ 7/2 for the match to end in stalemate, despite United failing to register an away draw to date.

In the half-time/full-time markets, BetVictor.com rate the chances of both halves finishing on level terms as a 7/1 shot, while bet365’s 16/1, posted about Norwich emerging victorious following a drawn opening half, looks like one for the optimists.

The correct score markets are dominated by results in Manchester United’s favour, the most popular being 0-2, priced at 13/2 by Skybet. Much further down the list, a 1-0 Norwich win can be backed at a massive 20/1 (Stan James), while a 2-1 home victory is offered at 22/1 by Paddy Power.
