Match Preview

Norwich manager Chris Hughton would be pretty excited with the recnet showing of the club and hope for another miracle, like the match against Arsenal, and his team toppling the league leaders when they visit the Canaries this weekend. But his job will be made difficult by the absence of Russell Martin in defence who has been like a pillar for the team in the back. But in the midfield Tattey returns to action and Snodgrass is in peak form which would keep the manager optimistic. But if Norwich are to leave an impression it will be upto their man of all seasons, Grant Holt. He has scored some vital goals for the side this season, including the all important goal against Arsenal.

Wayne Rooney is set to miss this week’s match but that should be a boon in disguise for Sir Alex as he will be spared the difficlut task of leaving Chicharito out of the team. The Mexican helped his team make an awesome comeback last week and is set to partner Van Persie up front, who missed the midweek international match. Jonny Evans may also miss this game and Chris Smalling should take his place in that case. United are now just 2 points clear of the second placed Manchester City and would like to earn the maximum points in their next 4 matches before they face their Manchester rivals. United will definitely take a lesson from Norwich City’s game against Arsenal and would not like to commit the same mistakes. Thus, although United are a heavy favourite for the match the hosts look to make astiff challange and make like difficult for the visitors.

Our Prediction- Norwich city 0-2 Manchester United
