Possible Manchester United Starting Line-Up Against Norwich

Share

Manchester United will take on Norwich City at the Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League, looking to extend their winning streak to six games.

After a stuttering start to the season, the Red Devils are finally getting back to their familiar groove and the confidence in the camp will be high after earning a 3-2 victory against Hull City on Boxing Day.

Manchester United will be definitely without Antonio Valencia for this match, who is suspended for this game. Likewise, right-back Rafael is doubtful too for this tie, while Darren Fletcher could be rested.

Defence: Chris Smalling is expected to take the right-back role in place of Rafael. Skipper Nemanja Vidic could come in to the side and partner Jonny Evans at the heart of defence.

Midfield: Second game in 3 days will be too much for recently returned Darren Fletcher. Michael Carrick returned from injury as well and was used a sub against Hull City. Expect the Englishman to partner Tom Cleverley on Saturday.

Forward: In an ideal situation, Javier Hernandez would have got the chance, but Moyes probably prefers Danny Welbeck. In absence of Valencia, expect Ashley Young to take the right wing role, while either of Januzaj or Kagawa to take the either flank, while Rooney will operate behind the striker in his favored no 10 role.

Prediction: 1-2; United are on a roll here. They have won their last three matches in the Premier League and expect yet another victory for the Champions.
