Team News

Man United will again surely be without the services of Edinson Cavani and Luke Shaw through injury, while Mason Greenwood remains suspended by the Red Devils.

The home party are also without Raphael Varane, Fred and Scott McTominay against the Talebearers, so Victor Lindelof, Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba are in line for thresholds.

Alex Telles will continue at left- reverse in Shaw’s absence, but there could be a change at right- reverse, with Diogo Dalot potentially replacing Aaron Wan-Bissaka, while Anthony Elanga could come in for Marcus Rashford.

Ronaldo suffered a nasty cut to his thigh during the defeat to Everton last weekend, but the Portugal transnational has trained this week and is fit to lead the line for the home side.

As for Norwich, Adam Idah, Ozan Kabak, Joshua Sargent and Andrew Omobamidele are each surely out of the match through injury, while Brandon Williams is ineligible against his parent club.

Billy Gilmour and Przemyslaw Placheta are also minor dubieties for the callers despite returning to training, so it would not be a surprise to see Smith name an unchanged side from the bone that took to the field against Burnley.

That said, Max Aarons was on the bench against Burnley after recovering from injury, so the 22- time-old could come back in at right- back, but Pukki should again lead the line with support from Pierre Lees Melou, Milot Rashica and Kieran Dowell.

Predicted Lineup

Manchester United expected starting lineup: De Gea; Dalot; Lindelof, Maguire, Telles; Matic; Pogba- Elanga, Fernandes, Sancho- Ronaldo

Norwich City expected starting lineup: Krul; Aarons- Hanley, Gibson, Giannoulis; McLean, Normann- Dowell; Lees Melou, Rashica- Pukki
