Norwich City have lost 1-0 on both of their last visits to the Britannia Stadium and a repeat result looks on the cards with punters advised to take full advantage of scorching 11/2 odds.
Stoke have only lost six times in 45 matches at the Britannia against teams in the bottom half of the Premier League
Stoke have built their prolonged stay at English football’s top table on a textbook home record that has averaged 30 points per season since achieving promotion in 2007.
Big hitters Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea have all frozen in front of the partisan Britannia locals, therefore it’s unsurprising to find that lesser sides have struggled to leave Staffordshire with maximum points too.
The Potters look well worth steaming into at 18/19 for victory, with the Canaries 3/1 for success and 9/4 the odds on offer for a stalemate.
Norwich have only scored 16 goals in their last 21 away Premier League matches, failing to fire on 10 occasions.
Although Norwich boss Chris Hughton has brought many positives to Carrow Road since his arrival at the start of last season, his inability to produce results on the road is becoming a worry for the travelling green and yellow army.
Those hardy souls in the Norwich away end have only witnessed two away wins during Hughton’s tenure, albeit one of those did come at Manchester City, where they amazingly won 3-2.
But one majestic result can’t paper over the cracks of inconsistency and barren form in front of goal.
Norwich have been limited to one goal or less in 19 of their last 21 top flight games.
Having spent a small fortune in the transfer market on strikers Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Gary Hooper and Johan Elmander to solve their striking woes, Norwich have only scored three goals in five games this season and are currently on a run of 202 minutes without scoring.
