Ryan Giggs could hardly have dreamed of a more palatable first game for his spell as interim manager of Manchester United than the visit of Norwich.
The Canaries have mustered a miserable eight points in 17 away games this season and arrive at Old Trafford on a run of eight straight road-going defeats.
A slap-up celebration should be in the offing at the Theatre of Dreams and Juan Mata is expected to be waiting impatiently, cap in hand at the front of the queue for seconds when the goals are ladled out.
Bagging once will see him take his recent scoring run to four goals in four games after following up his first strike for the Red Devils in the 4-1 victory over Aston Villa with a brace against Newcastle.
Norwich are favoured victims of Mata’s goalscoring nous too – he’s struck in two of his last four meetings with the doom-flirting East Anglians.
The Spaniard is 5/1 to start the fun with the first goal of proceedings and with the boys in black and gold at bwin giving this tussle the double/triple money treatment, profits can continue to rise.
If he goes on to bag once or twice more after dismantling the deadlock bwinners invested in him doing so will see their takings double or tripled for good measure.

Despite averaging just 1.11 goals against in away league games, Neil Adams’ visitors have been overcome by generosity in recent weeks as they slide towards the top-flight trapdoor.
Fellow strugglers Fulham are the only side in the last eight to host Norwich’s misery road show not to bag at least twice, with the Canaries’ average concessions standing at the rather more encouraging 2.63 during that time.
