Fresh off one of their most encouraging performances of the season, Manchester United switch their attention to the FA Cup this weekend, and a trip to Carrow Road to face Norwich City. United won the Premier League version of this fixture 3-1 earlier in the season. With so many games in a short space of time, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely to rotate his squad for this match — although not too much, as the Reds can’t afford to pass up the chance to progress in the FA Cup.
Solskjaer has confirmed that Jesse Lingard will be involved on Saturday, after the midfielder recovered from illness. The likes of Fred, Scott McTominay, and Daniel James will all expect to return to the starting XI after being dropped to the bench on Wednesday.
