Norwich are back in the relegation zone after losing 1-0 at Arsenal last Saturday and though they have a game in hand over rivals Newcastle, they trail them by two points.

They face a Manchester United team bidding to finish in the top four. They drew with Leicester on Sunday but Manchester City's defeat at Southampton means the Louis van Gaal's men are four points behind their neighbours with a game in hand.

United have scored only 19 goals away from home and need one more from either this game or next week's trip to West Ham to avoid setting a club record. Their previous fewest number of away goals in the Premier League is 21, set last season.

And they have managed just 17 wins, two short of their record fewest Premier League wins, set in the 2013-14 campaign.

Norwich, though, have lost 20 league games - only relegated Aston Villa (26) have lost more. And the Canaries have lost 11 and draw two of their last 15 league games. Leaving them with a desperate fight for safety.
