Team News:
Norwich
The Canaries come into this game having won only two of their opening nine games and are now winless in four. They managed to stop the rot against Bournemouth last weekend but the 0-0 draw does not hide the fact that Daniel Farke’s men have conceded 21 goals already this season.
Going forward, there appears to be less to worry about. Having netted 10 times in the Premier League, more than both Crystal Palace and Sheffield United who are comfortably sat in the top half of the table, you sense Norwich can cause other teams problems but that backline must tighten up if they’re to avoid a swift return to the Championship.
There are a fair few on the treatment table at Carrow Road with Grant Hanley out until December following groin surgery and both Timm Klose and Christoph Zimmermann out with knee and ankle injuries respectively.

Mario Vrancic and Ralf Fahrmann are doubts but Ben Godfrey is available to play after recovering from a knock against Bournemouth.
Predicted XI: Krul; Aarons, Amadou, Godfrey, Lewis; Buendia, McLean, Tettey, Leitner, Cantwell; Pukki.

Manchester United
United battled to a 1-0 win in Belgrade on Thursday having put in a solid performance against rivals Liverpool last weekend. The recent slump has seen pressure ever-mounting on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and with good reason. United sit just two points above the relegation zone and only three ahead of Norwich, so avoiding defeat is paramount for the Red Devils here.
United will be without several players for the trip to East Anglia with Eric Bailly, Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Diogo Dalot all out injured, while Paul Pogba is a major doubt after picking up an ankle injury.

Axel Tuanzebe will not feature due to an ongoing hip problem while Nemanja Matic is also out.

Predicted XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Young; Fred, McTominay; James, Pereira, Rashford; Martial.
