Manchester United will look to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they welcome bottom side Norwich City to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
MANCHESTER UNITED STATS, FORM, SQUAD
Man United’s hopes of claiming a top-four finish in the Premier League this season suffered a huge blow last weekend when they lost 1-0 to struggling Everton leaving them seventh in the premier league table, six points behind fourth-placed Tottenham. With confidence levels low in the camp, Ralf Ragnick has a big task at hand as they take on Liverpool, Arsenal, Brentford, Brighton & Hove Albion, Chelsea, and Crystal Palace in their final six matches of the season. However, a win on Saturday could act as a morale booster for the rest of the campaign. Manchester United have won just one of their last seven games, scoring more than two goals in just one of their last ten at Old Trafford. The Red Devils have won their last five matches against Norwich in all competitions, including a 1-0 victory at Carrow Road earlier this season. With four of Manchester United’s last six Premier League games ending with both sides scoring, we can bet on Norwich finding the back of the net here. Edinson Cavani and Luke Shaw are out through injury while Raphael Varane, Fred, and Scott McTominay are major doubts. Predicted Lineup: De Gea; Dalot, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles; Matic, Pogba; Elanga, Fernandes, Sancho; Ronaldo.
NORWICH STATS, FORM, SQUAD
Norwich kept their slim hopes of avoiding relegation alive last weekend with a 2-0 win over relegation rivals Burnley. The Canaries remain bottom of the Premier League table and are seven points adrift of safety, but they have managed four points from their last two games and now could be a good time to head to Old Trafford. Finding the back of the net has been a real problem for the Canaries this season, having scored just 20 times in 31 Premier League matches. With games against Newcastle, Aston Villa, West Ham, Leicester City, Wolves, and Tottenham in the final lap of the season, it is going to take something special to escape the relegation zone. Norwich has the second-worst away record in the Premier League this season, picking up just nine points from their 15 matches on their travels, but Man United’s recent performances have largely been poor, giving them hope of at least finding the back of the net this weekend. Adam Idah, Ozan Kabak, and Andrew Omobamidele are ruled out with injuries while Billy Gilmour, Josh Sargent, and Przemyslaw Placheta are major doubts. Brandon Williams is ineligible to face his parent club. Predicted Lineup: Krul; Aarons, Hanley, Gibson, Giannoulis; McLean, Normann; Dowell, Lees Melou, Rashica; Pukki.
