The Red Devils are on the road yet again and having secured an away win in Europe, they will now be eager to do the same in England too with Carrow Road set to be the definitive destination.
While the two games after the international break did seem to stabilize the mood at the Mancunian camp, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have to win this fixture if he is to make a strong case for his continued tenure at the club.
Here’s how the two teams are likely to lineup for the Sunday fixture.
The Canaries are certainly hard hit by injuries as manager Daniel Farke will assuredly be without Timm Klose, Christoph Zimmermann, Grant Hanley, Mario Vrancic, and Ralf Fahrmann.
Their recent performances have been quite lacking and they’ve been bereft of a Premier League win since the miraculous 3-2 victory over Manchester City at home. They have to their credit a firm fighting spirit and that is bound to cause United heaps of trouble.
Defenders: Aarons, Amadou, Godfrey, Lewis
Midfielders: Alexander, McLean
Forwards: Buendia, Leitner, Cantwell; Pukki
The injuries that plagued United for much of their recent tenure does show some hope of improvement, although the availability of Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw, Axel Tuanzebe, and Nemanja Matic still remains doubtful inkling towards the unlikely for the away trip.
Youngster Brandon Williams was immensely impressive for United in Serbia and it will be interesting to see if Solskjaer will give him a follow-up Premier League start too.
Anthony Martial and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are back to match fitness and will likely provide the requisite semblance of the week-one squad, although the Frenchman’s showing in Serbia did appear quite lackluster.
Goalkeeper: De Gea
Defenders: Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Williams
Midfielders: McTominay, Fred
Forwards: Rashford, Mata, James; Martial
