GUARDIAN – Premier League: 10 things to look out for this weekend | Scott Murray & Toby Moses

Norwich bidding to spoil Ryan Giggs’s Manchester United party, a classic José Mourinho snatch-and-grab at Liverpool and a battle of the league’s most put-upon goalkeepers at SunderlandPoor old Norwich City, desperate for points, and facing a preposterous run-in: Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal. It couldn’t get any worse. Except, yes, yes it could. Because they now travel to United with the home team feeling good about themselves pretty much for the first time in a season. The home fans want a show, and Ryan Giggs wants a job, so the players have been ordered to rediscover their lust for life and ping it about accordingly, in the time-honoured United way. Given that Norwich have picked up fewer points on the road than any other side, they seem ill equipped to poop this particular party. Unless, unless. United haven’t responded particularly well to hard, relentless pressing this season, and Norwich managed to put the wind up Liverpool last weekend by doing exactly that. A long shot, but a repeat performance of that staunch second-half display at Carrow Road could be enough to scramble an invaluable point, especially if Norwich find their hosts a touch too demob happy.
