Norwich City vs Manchester United LIVE: Head to Head Stats
Norwich City vs Manchester United LIVE: Players to watch out for
Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United):
The Portuguese has scored 6 goals and provided 2 assists in 12 Premier League games this season. He is well-rested and would be at his dangerous best against an unstable Norwich defence. The 36-year old would be the go-to man for the Red Devils in the weekend.
Teemu Pukki (Norwich City):
The Finnish striker has been instrumental to the Canaries in the past few seasons. Teemu Pukki has 5 goals in the Premier League this season. He is the clubs’ top scorer. And he would be one of the favourites to find the back of the net against the Red Devils.

The Twelfth Man Times Prediction: Norwich City 0-2 Manchester United
We expect Manchester United to be razor-sharp in attack and resolute in defence under Rangnick. The Canaries conceded a total of 10 goals against Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea. Hence we expect the Red Devils to at least score 2 past their defence.
