Manchester United will face off against Norwich City at Carrow Road this Saturday evening as they look to secure a victory on their travels. The Red Devils were held to a 1-1 draw by Young Boys in the UEFA Champions League earlier this week, so they will be desperate to return to winning ways versus the Canaries this weekend.

Ralf Rangnick could choose to set his team up in a 4-2-2-2 formation and is expected to revert to his strongest XI for this game. Both Scott McTominay and Fred are expected to play from the start while Donny van de Beek and Jesse Lingard drop to the bench.

Defence

David de Gea will operate in goal for the Mancunian giants after being rested in midweek. Victor Lindelof will function alongside Harry Maguire at the centre of the Man United backline as they focus on keeping things solid defensively throughout the 90 minutes.

Diogo Dalot will get the nod to start at right-back while Alex Telles hopes to impress on the other flank as the left-back. Rangnick will give both of them the license to get forward and offer decent support to the front players.

Eric Bailly will provide cover for the centre-half positions on the Man United bench.

Midfield

Scott McTominay and Fred will assume the duties of the holding midfielders as they look to establish their superiority over the opposition at the centre of the park. Bruno Fernandes and Jadon Sancho will both act as the free-flowing attacking midfielders. Rangnick will ask them to carry most of the creative workload for Man United up top.

Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata will have to settle for a spot on the bench as they wait for their opportunity to impress in the second 45 minutes if needed.

Attack

Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford will lead the line for the Red Devils up top. Both of them will be eager to find the back of the net when they lace up to face off against the Norwich centre-halves this weekend.

Mason Greenwood will be named on the bench but might come on to make an impact in the latter stages if required.
