Norwich vs Man United: what has been said?

Man United boss Ralf Rangnick: “We played well against Palace, everything was not perfect but a lot of things worked well, we were always in the spotlight and we had control of the game.

“Now it’s about taking the next steps, it’s mostly about trying to be on the pitch, we don’t have a lot of training sessions, this week we’ve had a few but with the full squad we’ve always had a few U19 and U21 players to train with us, but now it’s time to move on to the next steps.

“I think the basis for what we showed against Crystal Palace was good, we didn’t allow them to score, we didn’t allow them too many chances. We had a blank sheet.

“It’s still the ambition we have now that we have Norwich away. They have improved since they changed managers.

“They are a little more direct, a little more vertical than they were under Daniel Farke. It will be a challenge to play at Carrow Road, but we want to improve our performance, build on what we have shown against Crystal Palace and hopefully get the next win tomorrow.

Norwich vs Man United: match information

  • Norwich have lost eight of their last 10 Premier League encounters with Man Utd (W2), including the last three in a row. This is the fourth time they have lost three consecutive Premier League games to Man Utd, but they have never lost four in a row to them in the competition.
  • None of Manchester United’s last 14 away league games against Norwich have finished on level, with the Red Devils winning nine (L5).
  • Manchester United are winless in their last four Premier League appearances against newly promoted sides (D3 L1), losing 4-1 to Watford earlier this season. The Red Devils have not played five league games in a row without a win against these teams since a series of seven between January 1992 and January 1993.
  • Two of Norwich’s last four home games in the Premier League have ended scoreless, one more than in their previous 47 at Carrow Road. The Canaries’ two clean sheets in four home games are also as much as they have managed in their previous 26 in the top flight.
  • Norwich have failed to score in nine different Premier League games this season, as their eight goals scored are their smallest after 15 games in their league history. Of the previous 17 clubs to have scored eight goals or less after 15 top-level games, only three have avoided relegation – Sheffield United (1990-91), Everton (2005-06) and Crystal Palace (2017-18).
  • After an English Premier League record of 29 consecutive away games unbeaten, Manchester United have now lost two of their last four away games, conceding four goals in the two defeats.
  • Man Utd’s Marcus Rashford has been involved in four goals in his two Premier League games against Norwich (3 goals, 1 assist), averaging goals every 37 minutes against the Canaries in the competition.
  • This will be the first away league game for Ralf Rangnick in charge of Manchester United – none of Man Utd’s previous four permanent managers have lost their first road championship game (W3 D1), with Alex Ferguson being the last to do so (2-0 at Oxford United in November 1986).
  • Norwich’s Dean Smith has already beaten Manchester United once in the Premier League this season, winning 1-0 with Aston Villa in September. He could become the first manager since Andy Aitken in 1908-09 to beat Man Utd with two different clubs in the same top-level season – Aitken won 5-0 with Middlesbrough and 3-2 with Leicester that season.
  • Three of Mason Greenwood’s four Premier League goals this season have been scored away from home, making him Manchester United’s top scorer at Old Trafford this season.
