Norwich versus Manchester United, Saturday, May 7

Norwich City may have beaten Manchester United at Old Trafford for the first time since 1989 in December to climb out of the relegation zone, but the Red Devils are odds-on (10/11) to nudge the Canaries even closer to Championship football when the teams meet again at Carrow Road on Saturday. Frankly, it’s hard to enthuse about a Norwich City side that has lost more Premier League games than any other, except relegated Aston Villa, this season and kept just five clean sheets.

The future of Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal remains uncertain, but his side had, by far, the majority of the possession during the 1-1 draw with Leicester City at Old Trafford on Sunday and, although they are four points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester City, they have a game in hand. Qualification for the Champions’ League would surely save Van Gaal’s bacon so, with an away tie with West Ham at Upton Park next Tuesday to follow, he’s unlikely to pull any punches here. Let’s try Manchester United for a routine 2-0 win at 17/2 with Bet365.

Selection: Manchester United to win 2-0 (17/2 with Bet365)
