Manchester United and Norwich City will both be looking for some relief to their Premier League campaign when they meet at Carrow Road on Sunday in matchday 10.
Since winning 1-3 at Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United have failed to win away game since then. A win on Thursday over Partizan Belgrade saw United break their away game hoodoo.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finds his team 15th on the league standings with 10 points after nine games played, including halting Liverpool’s winning streak last weekend.
Norwich on the other hand haven’t had quite a stellar performance since defeating defending champions, Manchester City at Carrow Road. The Canaries are currently in the relegation zone, just three points behind the Red Devils.
