Manchester United - Norwich City Betting Preview: Backing plenty of goals could prove profitable in Cup crunch

David Moyes' men will have been lifted by a 3-2 victory over Stoke City at the weekend and Willie Duncan is backing plenty of goals to be scored again at Old Trafford on Tuesday
Following victories over Real Sociedad and Stoke City within the past seven days, Manchester United will be looking to claim a third successive win for the first time this season when they take on Norwich City in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday evening.

The hosts are available at just 7/20 (1.35) with Betway to book their place in the last eight of the competition by defeating the Canaries at Old Trafford.

Chris Hughton’s men were thumped 4-0 on their last visit to Old Trafford back in March, while the Canaries have also suffered heavy defeats against both Chelsea and Arsenal in recent weeks.

Norwich, though, will take some heart from a battling 0-0 draw with Cardiff City at the weekend and can be backed at a chunky 9/1 (10.0) with Betway to claim a surprise victory at Old Trafford. The draw is available at 7/2 (4.50) with the same firm.

Those expecting a comfortable victory for the home side may be tempted by the 4/5 (1.80) quote from Betway for David Moyes’ side to lead at both half-time and full-time while the 17/20 (1.85) on offer from the same firm for United (-1) in the handicap market also carries considerable appeal here.

United, though, have kept just one clean sheet in their last six matches in all competitions while the Canaries have scored in four of their last five matches so the 17/20 (1.85) quote from Betway for both teams to score on Tuesday is likely to prove popular.

Norwich have kept just three clean sheets in 11 matches so far this season and, given the defensive deficiencies that both sides suffer from, there is certainly potential for plenty of goals at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Therefore, the 29/20 (2.45) quote from Betway for four or more goals to be scored is the recommended play for punters while those seeking to back bigger prices should take a chance on the 35/4 (9.75) quote from the same firm for Manchester United to win 3-1.
