Daniel James should return in place os Mason Greenwood, despite the teenager's goal against Partizan in midweek.

The contest was put to bed shortly after the halftime break, as Ashley Young picked out Rashford in the penalty area for an easy tap in.

"They're a hard team to play against". But it's not a secret that The Red Devils have to turn things around in the Premier League. I'm managing for Man United, I'm not managing for me. They are coming off a 1-0 away loss at Bournemouth.

It was a cagey first half, with the home side creating a few half chances and the Canaries looking to hit on the counter in response. Their five-game form has showed their struggles.

"It didn't look too good", said Solskjaer. The Red Devils have the edge with a W13, D5, L3 record. They've got all the potential in the world within this squad and they just need that one result to really push them on, and while it may not be a convincing one, we do expect them to get the job done. We always play to win, to leave with three points.

United were able to beat over Partizan during the week, but it may have cost them two key players in the process.

EPL: Klopp reveals why Liverpool won’t buy Mbappe from PSG
Klopp addressed the speculation linking Liverpool with Mbappe ahead of his side's crucial clash with Manchester City on Sunday. Klopp, though, said it is easier than when he first arrived in 2015 to attract top level players to Liverpool .

Solskjaer's woes got even greater on Thursday with Scott McTominay and Harry Maguire both picking up minor injuries that could limit their participation here.

Victor Lindelof missed the Europa League tie due to injury, but he should be back today. Paul Pogba, Axel Tuanzebe, Luke Shaw, Nemanja Matic, Eric Bailly, Angel Gomes, Diogo Dalot, and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are injured. He joined Bernardo and Jose Izquierdo on the treatment table, with the trio all out for Sunday's game.

Supporters have been losing patience given the team's inconsistencies this season that have seen them in 10th place before this weekend's Premier League round began.

Under Potter, Brighton have started to play some really lovely football.

United should be cruising past the likes of Bournemouth and Brighton yet they could find themselves pointless if the horror continues on Saturday afternoon. The Seagulls had 58% of possession against Norwich, and 56% the week prior versus Everton.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are now 14th in the league, 18 points behind leaders Liverpool but could move up to 7th with a win. They can't break down teams with the ball, so they're better off just not trying.
