English Premier League – Norwich City-Manchester United
Norwich City hosts Manchester United at the their Carrow Road in a game from the 10th round of the English Premier League. After already beating Manchester City at home earlier in the season, can now the Canaries do it again against the other Manchester team? We shall see.
Typically for a newcomer, Norwich City are having a difficult campaign so far. Right now they are in the relegation zone of the Premier League, positioned at 19th place with 7 points won so far. In their last four games Norwich won just one point. Their last win was against the champion Manchester City at the Carrow Road, how we mentioned.
Last week Norwich City visited AFC Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium, taking a point home after a 0-0 draw. Of course, this point didn’t help them much to escape the relegation zone of the standings, but every point won, especially away from home, could be very precious at the end of the season.
For Manchester United the mediocrity have become something ordinary. Right now the Red Devils are 14th in the standings with 10 points won, which should tell you a lot. But we should also mention that United had a really tough schedule so far, so now they could start winning more points on a regular basis.
On other hand it’s really concerning that Manchester United are without a win in their last four matches in the league. In their last game Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s boys hosted the leader Liverpool at the Old Trafford. They were actually close to winning this one, because until the 85th minute they had an advantage, thanks to Marcus Rashford’s goal. Sadly for the fans at the Theatre of Dreams, Liverpool equalised with a late goal from Adam Lallana at the 85th minute.
It’s pretty logical that there are now some doubts that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is going to finish the season as Manchester United’s manager. But if the Norwegian tactician starts to improve his team, he could strenghten his positions at the Old Trafford. Winning against Norwich City on Sunday is a must.
