Seven games played and a job well done for Paul Lambert and Brendan Rodgers so far. The Canaries and Swans might still be odds-on for relegation this term, although they are currently stationed in 9th and 10th position following an accumulation of eight points so far.
Swansea have been reliant on their form at the Liberty Stadium thus far and they travel to Carrow Road having lost all three matches on the road this term, although their games have been against Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea.
Therefore, perhaps the 5/2 (bet365 – £200 free bets) about the visitors winning Saturday’s match is too big considering that they have recently put Stoke and West Brom to the sword at home, while they competed well in the trio of away matches before succumbing to the quality of the opposition.
Scott Sinclair has been looking very sharp and the Swansea penalty-taker is a 15/2 chance to break the deadlock in east Anglia, while Danny Graham’s maiden strike against the Potters could see the former Middlesbrough man get on a scoring run.
However, Norwich looked pretty strong when beating Sunderland 2-1 in their last home match and they also took the game to Manchester United at Old Trafford a fortnight ago before unfortunately losing by a 2-0 scoreline.
The home side are 6/5 to claim three points which would certainly build a cushion between themselves and the bottom three places of the division which are currently occupied by Wigan, Blackburn and Bolton.
This could be a cagey match considering that the Swans defence has stood up pretty well aside from late goal deluges at Manchester City and Chelsea, with Under 2.5 Goals making value at 5/6.
