Manchester United vs Norwich: Prediction, kick off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results today
Struggling Norwich head to Old Trafford today to take on Ralf Rangnick’s Manchester United side, who must claim all three points to hold out any hopes of a top-four finish.
On paper, the idea of playing a club rooted to the bottom of the Premier League should provide welcome respite for a United team coming under huge criticism, but the manner of their recent performances has done little to indicate they will win.
There will also be more fan protests against the Glazer family’s ownership ahead of kick-off, with some supporters making their feelings known at Carrington on Friday.
Unlike the home side, Norwich are fighting for something. Relegation is of course the most likely outcome for Dean Smith’s team, but last week’s win over Burnley has raised a slight hope that they could yet beat the drop.
Here’s everything you need to know about the game, which comes after United agreed a deal in principle with Ajax boss Erik ten Hag to become their next permanent manager in the summer.
Date, kick-off time and venue
Manchester United vs Norwich is scheduled for a 3pm BST kick-off time on Saturday April 16, 2022.
