Man Utd vs Norwich Preview:
Its team at the top half of the table against team at the bottom. This clash at Old Trafford could change the fortunes of both the clubs.
Many years back this would have been David vs Goliath encounter but in present you can expect Norwich to get something against United. United sit 5 points behind Chelsea and a win would put pressure on Chelsea for top 4 race. Maguire’s injury comes as a huge blow to United’s defensive issues. You would expect United to play entertaining and enthralling football but what they provide is dull and uninspiring football. Beating City and Tottenham but followed it up by humiliating defeat to Watford. This sums up this United side and they will hope to find some consistency by beating Norwich with Liverpool to come next.
Norwich on the other hand have different concerns to look upto. They sit at bottom of the table and will want to start a consistent winning run to avoid being relegated. Norwich showed their capabilities when they held Spurs to a 2-2 draw. United would remember what this Norwich side did to City earlier in the season. Pukki, Cantwell and Buendia have been excellent performers for Norwich with having young and exciting fullbacks in Lewis and Aarons. This side can beat anyone on their day and their fans would hope it will be at Old Trafford. Daniel Farke has done an commendable job at Norwich and a survival this year would be major achievement for him. With Bournemouth and Tottenham to face in upcoming weeks, Norwich would hope to take atleast a point against this inconsistent United side.
United would miss the services of Maguire, Bailly, Tuanzebe, Pogba and Mctominay. Maguire’s injury comes as a massive blow after losing Pogba and Mctominay for long term through injury. (Sports Mole)
Norwich might have to miss Pukki for the United game which could be a major blow for them.
Predicted Line Ups:
United: De Gea Wan Bissaka Lindelof Jones Shaw Matic Fred Pereira James Rashford Martial
Norwich: Krul Aarons Zimmermann Hanley Lewis Tettey Vrancic Buendia Mclean Cantwell Pukki( if fit)
Last time when these sides met, United comfortably got past this Norwich side 3-1. It easily could have been 6-2 for United and Ole Gunnar Solksjaer will hope that same will follow this Saturday.
Man Utd 2-0 Norwich
This should have been a easy prediction but this United side are difficult to predict. With counter attack their only threat, Norwich will look to defend and give United more of the Possession. United struggle in this part and missing Maguire at the back would come as a big blow. But still i beleive they have got too much attacking Prowess for this leaky Norwich defence. I expect Rashford and Martial to be on the scoresheet for United and giving much needed releif for Ole gunnar Solksjaer.
