Manchester welcome Norwich City to Old Trafford for both side’s 35th game of the English Premier League. Interim manager Ryan Giggs takes over the club for his first time. (Manchester United beat Norwich City 4-0)
MEETING BETWEEN THE TWO SIDES
1- Manchester United have won five of their last six games against Norwich, including the last three.
2- Norwich have failed to win their last nine matches away to the Red Devils, losing eight of those games.
