Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s headache regarding injuries is only set to aggravate after Harry Maguire was ruled out due to a hip injury. Paul Pogba, Scott McTominay, Eric Bailly, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Axel Tuanzebe, and Marcos Rojo are the rest of the players completing the list.
Phil Jones is expected to take Maguire’s place for today’s clash.
Predicted XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Jones, Shaw; Pereira, Matic, Fred; James, Martial, Rashford.
Ralf Fahrmann and Dennis Srbeny are touted to return for today’s clash, albeit neither of them are likely to start.
The biggest loss for Norwich comes in the form of Teemu Pukki, who is a doubt for the clash. The Canaries’ marksman missed the FA Cup clash against Norwich due to a thigh injury and is likely to be on the sidelines for the same reason today.
Tim Klose and Ben Godfrey are the long-term absentees.
Predicted XI: Krul; Aarons, Zimmermann, Hanley, Byram; Vrancic, Tettey; Buendia, McLean, Cantwell; Idah.
Norwich have won the last 4 league games in succession while Manchester United have faltered.
Given the Red Devils’ abysmal form and Norwich’s positive run of games, the two sides could possibly play out a stalemate today.
Final Score: Manchester United 1-1 Norwich City
