Norwich City host Manchester United in the early kick off at Carrow Road on Saturday lunchtime knowing they realistically must win in order to increase their chances of avoiding relegation this season.

The Canaries did beat United 2-1 in the reverse fixture back in December at Old Trafford thanks to goals from Cameron Jerome and Alex Tettey but in truth, Manchester United were going through their worst form of the season and there were growing calls for manager, Louis Van Gaal, to be given the sack. However fast forward five months and the emergence of Marcus Rashford later, and United are in a much healthier position and still have a realistic chance of the Champions League should they win their remaining games.

This will be no easy game for Norwich but with only Watford and Everton left to play after Saturday’s fixture, there can be no more poor performances from the Canaries.

Here is my predicted XI ahead of the game.
