Wigan Athletic won't be able to rely on their individual players in this game, as Norwich City have been good at managing these threats in previous games. If Norwich City continue their solid defensive performance, they should be able to stop a lot of chances as they develop for their opponents. Wigan Athletic will need to be defensively alert, as Norwich City will continue their tactical usage of attacking through balls. Wigan Athletic will hope that Norwich City attack wide so they can prevent danger with their superior defence on the wings. Norwich City should be able to pick up some extra possession as they have performed better than Wigan Athletic in the air.
