Manchester United v Norwich City: Can the Canaries spoil Giggs' big day?


Bookmark and Share

Manchester United star Ryan Giggs is expected to feature in his 1,000th competitive game this afternoon against Norwich City but can Chris Hughton's men spoil the Welshman's party?

The Canaries defeated the league leaders 1-0 at Carrow Road in November and are searching for their first double over United since 1990. They were unlucky to leave Old Trafford without a point last season and had their hearts broken by a last-gasp Ryan Giggs effort at Carrow Road in February, but will they get revenge today?

Only Spurs have managed to leave the Theatre of Dreams with anything this season, while Norwich have only recorded one away win all season.

United have the title in the grasp and not many people can see them throwing away a 12 point lead at this stage of the season. Norwich gave their survival hopes a huge lift last weekend with victory over Everton and are now just three wins and a draw away from the magical 40-point mark.

To illustrate just how hard it is going to be for the visitors, United have kept four clean sheets in their past six league outings, but can the Canaries be party poopers? Our pundits have their say.
