Nelson Oliveira is the favourite in the first goalscorer market at 9/2 - the striker making headlines this week when he said that the Canaries are a ‘better club’ than Ipswich.

Joe Garner, who faces a race against time to be fit for the game, is the choice for first goalscorer on the Town side at 11/2.

- Quiz: They played for both, but which side more?

A 1-1 is the bookies’ tip for final result at around 11/2, followed by a Norwich 1-0 (8/1) and Town 1-0 (10/1).

If you fancy a red card in a feisty derby, you can get best odds of 27/10.
