Match Preview: Norwich vs United

Manchester United currently stand at five wins in a row in all competitions; The best winning streak under new management. Today the lads head to Carrow Road where Norwich await, and Chris Hughton’s side have caused us problems in the past, so lets hope David Moyes gets his tactics correct.

Our away form has been much better than our home form so far this season, and maybe thats because of the way David Moyes likes to set his side up. He prefers to make sure we stay tight at the back rather than going on the all-out attack from the off. Away from home this suits United, however at home we’ve struggled to adapt to the formation.

KO: 15:00 BST
Venue: Carrow Road
Date: 28th December 2013

This morning we’re waking up to another boost on the injury-front, with the usually reliable Guardian newspaper claiming that Robin van Persie has an ‘outside chance’ of making the United bench today. Just as we’re getting a few players back from injury we seem to lose others in different areas. Michael Carrick returned to the United setup on Boxing Day, however we’re now without Rafael da Silva and Phil Jones due to groin and knee injuries respectively.

Norwich have a few injuries of their own. Jonny Howson faces a late fitness test on a back injury, and former Manchester United youngster Anthony Pilkington has been ruled out with a hamstring problem. Another two players who are definitely sidelined are Alex Tettey and Elliot Bennett.

See our predicted line-ups here.

Again, this is another must win game if we want to keep our faint title aspirations alive. Four of the teams above us face each other, as Liverpool and Chelsea face-off as well as Arsenal and Newcastle. A win here is crucial for United.
