Norwich City strikers may be a byword for timidity, but faced with the naturally occurring aphrodisiac of a meeting with Swansea even they may shed their inhibitions to join in what has often been an orgy of goals for both sides.
The Swans are 18/25 for victory, with the Canaries 4/1 and 5/2 the draw, but it’s the 4/5 about both teams finding the net that makes most appeal.

Read on for the reasoning:
The 1-1 Carrow Road draw this term broke a run of four straight over 3.5 goal meetings.
Even in pouring cold water on the contest’s bloodbath reputation both defences were skewered in East Anglia.
Norwich have just scored twice or more in consecutive games for the first time this season.
The Canaries have developed a timely taste for the net as the season nears the nitty gritty and they’ll be aided by a Welsh rearguard that’s not been at it’s most miserly of late.
Both teams have netted in eight of the Swans’ last nine games in all competitions.
Bizarrely Champions League dropouts Napoli were the only side to be denied during that run, as even Crystal Palace, the lowest away scorers in the football league, found a way to bag.
Chris Hughton’s men have shipped two goals or more in their last six away games.
Luckily for rookie dugout dweller Garry Monk the Canaries’ road defence has particularly generous of late, so conceding should be no barrier to home victory.
Swansea have netted in all bar one of their seven home games against bottom-half foes.
Any forlorn hopes of a visiting clean sheet are dealt a reality check by the Swans, who have been denied just once this term when the division’s poorer relations come to south Wales.
