Norwich vs Manchester United prediction: How will Premier League fixture play out tonight?

Manchester United head to Norwich City in the Premier League’s late kick-off on Saturday.

Ralf Rangnick’s tenure as interim manager began with a hard-fought 1-0 victory against Crystal Palace last weekend, while a draw against Young Boys offered the German the chance to experiment with his new squad.

Despite their volatile form this season, United remain just three points adrift of the top four heading into the weekend, and they will feel extremely confident of taking all three points at Carrow Road.

The Canaries have been significantly improved under Dean Smith but were thrashed 3-0 by Tottenham last time out.

Norwich are also waiting anxiously on the results of Covid-19 tests amid fears of a breakout within their first-team squad. Here is everything you need to know ahead of the match:
