Norwich welcome Manchester United on Saturday evening as the two meet for the first FA Cup quarter-final. United are in very good form, but struggle to score on the road, which brings into play the goals markets.
Norwich City Form & News
Norwich have tried their best to mix it with the big boys, but a severe lack of points looks set to cost them their Premier League place. Prior to the lockdown break, Norwich City dumped Tottenham Hotspur out of the FA Cup on penalties at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The match ended 1-1.
That triumph was quickly followed by a disappointing 1-0 defeat at Sheffield United. Their first game back this month saw them thumped 3-0 by Southampton at Carrow Road, before a 1-0 defeat to Everton at home in their last fixture.
Norwich City have a clean bill of health from which to select their squad for this encounter.
Manchester United Form & News
Manchester United have improved as the season has progressed. Prior to the lockdown break, the Red Devils beat rivals Manchester City 2-0 at Old Trafford, before grabbing a fine 5-0 win away at LASK.
United drew 1-1 away at Tottenham Hotspur in their first match back from the break. They followed that up with an impressive 3-0 win over Sheffield United at Old Trafford. Anthony Martial scored all three goals to notch his first hat-trick for the club.
At this point Manchester United have a fully fit squad to choose from. This could change after their Premier League clash against Sheffield United.
