After the weekend’s 2-0 away loss to Everton, Norwich travel to London to take on Fulham in the FA Cup. While this match could have repercussions for their week 22 Premier League match I’m going to focus on recent results prior to Wednesday’s game.
Norwich are currently on a run of six matches without a win in the Premier League. In this time they have failed to score more than one goal in any match and have failed to score at all in three of these.
Hull has had a bit of a rough time recently with matches coming against Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea all resulting in losses. In between them they did get a 6-0 Premier League win over Fulham at home and a 2-0 away win over Middlesbrough in the FA Cup.
Against Chelsea they didn’t exactly play badly, but where beaten by a better team that showed their quality.
Coming into Saturday’s match Hull are currently in tenth place with a 6-5-10 record and 23 points. However, tenth place isn’t necessarily safe since this is only six points off of 20th place Crystal Palace.
This season Hull has only lost to one team below them in the table, the 0-1 at home to Crystal Palace back on November 23. They have drawn with teams below them, but also defeated Norwich in their previous meeting back on August 24 with a ten man 1-0 win.
My pick is a Hull City win. In their previous six meetings in all competitions Hull City has the clear advantage with three wins and three draws. Norwich’s inability to keep goals out mean that there should be goals in this one and I’d bet on more than 2.5 as well.
Betting Odds: Norwich win: 2.21-2.25; Draw: 3.29-3.50; Hull win: 3.23-3.40
Form: Norwich (D, D, L, L, D, L) Hull (D, D, L, W, L, L)
Prediction: Norwich City 1 – 2 Hull City
