Norwich City - Manchester United Betting Preview: Back the league leaders to score for fun at Carrow Road

With the Red Devils in fine scoring form, Phil Kitromilides believes there is real value in backing them to put plenty of goals past the Canaries
Top-of-the-table and on a five-match winning run in the Premier League, Manchester United head to Carrow Road in a confident mood to face a Norwich City side who themselves are enjoying an impressive run of form.

The Canaries are unbeaten in their last five games during which time they have recorded eye catching victories over both Arsenal and Tottenham.

Bet365 price a home win on Saturday evening at 6/1 (7.00) with United available at 4/9 (1.44) and the draw offered at 7/2 (4.50).

While United's run of form has brought them maximum points from their recent matches, the victories have not come without a struggle.

Indeed, the Red Devils have come from behind to win on eight separate occasions in all competitions this season, and the price of 12/5 (3.40) for Norwich to score first will certainly catch the eye of some punters.

If United concede first, they will need to score a few goals to get themselves back into the game and the price of 11/8 (2.37) for the Reds to score over 2.5 goals is well worthy of some consideration.

This bet has paid out 11 times in competitive games that United have played this season, and in four of their last five Premier League games.

Against a Norwich side who conceded four goals the last time they played a top four side (a 4-1 defeat at Chelsea in October), United should have few problems in finding the net.
