    Manchester United Vs. Norwich – Premier League LIVE

    Probable Lineups:

    NorwichUnitedManchester United (4-2-3-1): Dea Gea, Smalling, Jones, Vidic, Evra, Fellaini, Carrick, Valencia, Mata, Kagawa, Rooney

    Manchester United return to action under interim manager Ryan Giggs along with a coaching staff consisting of former United players. The team needs to bounce back from a horrible defeat to Everton as Giggs prepares to get the players back on track. Three wins and three loses in as many games isn’t a too good a statistic considering the standards for the club. However, the Red Devils can still challenge for the sixth place spot, one which could grant them the Europa League football next season. The interim manager could very possibly make a few changes from the team that lost to Everton. Phil Jones looks to play central defence with an incoming Nemanja Vidic as Jonny Evans is brought to the bench. Chris Smalling should start at right back like he usually plays due to the injury to Rafael. Fletcher who began against Everton could be removed in place of Maroune Fellaini with Antonio Valencia likely to start ahead of Nani. Robin van Persie is still out with a knee injury and will most probably not feature at all. 

    Norwich City (4-1-2-1-2): Ruddy, Whittaker, Turner, Martin, Olsson, Johnson, Fer, Howson, Snodgrass, van Wolfswinkel, Redmond

    Norwich City are still fighting for their lives to avoid relegation as any slip up could cause them to drop back into the bottom three. Neil Adams need to find a way to take advantage of an under-performing Manchester United side in hopes of coming out on top. The side have notched only one win and five losses in six of their last games, with four consecutive loses before this match. The club are only safe by two points which are separating their 17th spot from 18th. However, Sunderland are only three points behind them in 20th place but have a game in hand, so a win for them could bring them level, opening up the relegation battle once more. Although Gary Hooper scored a goal at the weekend, Ricky van Wolfswinkel could possibly start over him as he plays alongside Nathan Redmond in attack.

    What the fans are saying…

     

    Remember this?

    Last season Shinji Kagawa scored a hat trick when Manchester United faced Norwich and with the Japanese international expecting to start, maybe he could produce another fine performance.

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    Rooney

    A lost to Everton last week looks to have pumped up Wayne Rooney as he and his teammates look to end a week of negativity with a morale boosting win. Being allowed a lone role up top and the new United coaches urging for attacking football, expect a few goals from the England striker.
