Norwich put their fight for Premier League survival to one side as they aim to reach the FA Cup semi-finals for the first time since 1992.
The Canaries finally landed a home tie after three away trips while Manchester United will be seeking to equal Arsenal’s record of 13 FA Cup victories.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are 53/100 for the win and that is our opening Norwich vs Man Utd prediction.
A Look At Norwich City’s Betting Odds
Norwich’s road to the quarter-finals has been far from easy with all three ties being away from home.
After a 4-2 win at Championship promotion chasers Preston – with teenage striker Adam Idah hitting a hat-trick – the Canaries returned to the north west to beat Premier League rivals Burnley 2-1.
That set up a fifth-round trip to Tottenham, where they emerged victorious following a penalty shoot-out in which keeper Tim Krul saved twice.
The Holland international also kept out two penalties when Manchester United visited Carrow Road earlier this season, although Solskjaer’s side still ran out 3-1 winners.
Boss Daniel Farke said: “We created something special because I think it’s the biggest success in Norwich City’s FA Cup history for nearly 30 years. I’m also delighted for all our supporters and for everyone who is connected with Norwich City.”
But the Canaries have had a miserable return to Premier League action, losing 3-0 at home to Southampton and 1-0 to Everton at Carrow Road to remain six points adrift of safety.
They have now netted just one goal in seven league games but with a semi-final at stake they must throw caution to the wind so, looking at the Norwich vs Man Utd odds, an away win and both teams to score at 9/4 is added to our betting tips.
Last Norwich line-up: Krul, Aarons, Godfrey, Klose, Lewis, Rupp, Duda, McLean, Tettey, Hernandez, Drmic.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
Manchester United have reached the FA Cup quarter-finals for a sixth successive year – but bowed out at the same stage to Wolves last season.
Their passage to the last eight has been more straightforward, with them first gaining revenge on Wolves with a 1-0 win at Old Trafford in round three.
A 6-0 thumping of League One strugglers Tranmere followed before Wayne Rooney’s United reunion ended in disappointment as Odion Ighalo struck twice in a 3-0 win at Derby.
Solskjaer said: “We’re not going to pick and choose games or competitions. We have to go for everything, that’s what it is to be at Manchester United.
“It’s another away draw [at Norwich]. We’ll have to do it the hard way if we want to go all the way. We’ve got a chance now.”
United are on a 13-game unbeaten run in all competitions after returning from the break with a 1-1 draw at Tottenham and a 3-0 win over Sheffield United at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils will have too much quality for a City side lacking confidence so our final Norwich vs Man Utd prediction is for the visitors to win 2-1 at 29/4.
Last Man Utd line-up: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Fernandes, Matic, Pogba, Rashford, Martial, Greenwood.
NORWICH 0-1 Everton
