After a winless streak of few games, Manchester United will try to seek win against Norwich City at the Old Trafford.
While Manchester is lying at the fourth position and fighting for the Champions League spot, Norwich is trying hard to save the relegation at the bottom of the table.
Injury Update :
Manchester United : Ander Herrera, Chris Smalling and Wayne Rooney has been returned to the practice ahead of their schedule and will be available for selection against Norwich City. Rooney pulled an ankle injury and has missed last three games, but will be available for the fixture.
German international Bastian Schweinsteiger will miss the fixture as he will be serving his three game suspension.
Norwich City : Norwich have almost the whole team for the selection. But their young star Declan Rudd is expected to replace John Ruddy as the experienced one has picked up legal issues in a taxi near a pub. Jarvis and Wisdom is expected to return to the practice in the last week of December.
Manchester United vs Norwich Probable Lineup:
Man United : De Gea – Varela – Smalling – Blind – Jones – Schneiderlin – Carrick – Mata – Rooney – Depay – Martial
Norwich : Rudd – Bennett – Martin – Bassong – Olsson – Dorrans – Howson – Tettey – Brady – Hoolahan – Jerome
Recent Form :
Manchester United : DWWDDL
It will be hard to see Manchester United dropping any points with the fire power they have in their resource. With a very tight Christmas schedule coming up ahead, Manchester United will try to grab some easy points available before that. With Rooney back in the squad Manchester United would be pumped up and surely go for a win with ease.
Norwich City : LWLDLD
With only five points from their last 6 fixtures, Norwich is struggling at the bottom end of the table. But stats do lie sometimes. Their performance is not bad as it seems. They should have beaten Arsenal at their home, but the Canaries do not have that much precision in the finishing.
Manchester United vs Norwich Prediction : An easy victory will be on cards as Rooney will mark his 500th appearance for the club.
Our Prediction – Manchester United 3-0 Norwich City
Manchester United vs Norwich Betting Odds : You can bet for a United win for 1/2, Norwich victory for 7/4 and a draw with 6/4
