It was not the start to the season that pre-season favourites Norwich were hoping for going down to a 1-0 loss at Cardiff. The expected goals data suggests the result was harsh on the Canaries in a game low on chances and high on aggression which saw both teams have a player dismissed.

After struggles at home in the Premier League last season the East Anglians will know the importance of getting the campaign underway with a home victory. The head-to-head record favours Norwich who have won four of their last six meetings at Carrow Road against the Lancashire outfit.

Wigan will be looking to build on their opening day point against Preston a result that was a fair reflection of an open game. Both sides created chances on that occasion but the game finished goalless.

Away from the DW Stadium last season the Latics were strong winning 14 and losing just three of their 23 fixtures. Will Keane loves a road trip having grabbed seven goals from his last six away appearances.

Norwich vs Wigan Match Stats

Despite failing to create many clear chances on the opening day what was notable was the way that the Norwich full-backs were pushed up. Max Aarons actually managed two shots on target and looks over-priced to net at anytime in this fixture.

Another player who looks good value to score at any time is Tom Naylor for the visitors who was clearly targeted at set-pieces. He managed four shots and with the Canaries missing Grant Hanley at the heart of their defence they could be vulnerable here.
