Is Man Utd vs Norwich on TV? Live stream, kick-off time, team news for Premier League clash

MANCHESTER UNITED'S fading hopes of making the top four could be truly extinguished if they fail to beat basement boys Norwich at home.

The Red Devils are currently lingering in seventh spot – trailing Antonio Conte's Tottenham by six points.

And last weekend's 1-0 loss to Everton stretched their winless run to three in all competitions.

However, United are coming up against a team who are rock bottom of the Premier League as things stand.

But the Canaries pulled off a massive result over Burnley in their last outing so they'll be full of confidence going into this.

And United have just found out that Nemanja Matic will LEAVE the club in the summer after the 33-year-old decided he does not want to sign a year's extension at the club.

What TV channel is Man Utd vs Norwich on and can I live stream it?

  • Unfortunately, Manchester United vs Norwich City will not be broadcasted live on UK television.

  • However, subscription members of NBC can stream the game via the NBC Sport website or app.

Team news

United's midfield duo of Scott McTominay and Fred are likely to both miss the game against Norwich.

The Scotsman is nursing a foot injury whilst Fred came off early in the 1-0 loss to Everton with a hip issue.

Edinson Cavani, Luke Shaw and Raphael Varane will also be unavailable.

And Cristiano Ronaldo's shin troubles which he sustained last weekend have made him a doubt too.

Elsewhere, Josh Sargent, Lukas Rupp, Jon McCracken and Przemyslaw Placheta were all ruled out for Norwich's crucial win against Burnley.

Which has casted them all as doubts for the trip to Old Trafford on Saturday.

    Rangnick: We can't be complacent

    The German said: "[Losing to Norwich] should be unthinkable but we all know in football that things like that can happen.

    "We saw that even in the European cup games and in other leagues.

    "We saw it this week that things like that can happen but this is what makes this ball game so interesting.

    "You never know what the outcome will be.

    "I'm pretty positive we will have a reaction against Norwich. This has to happen and we owe it to ourselves and our supporters – and we owe that to the whole club."

    Good afternoon football fans

    Welcome to SunSport's coverage of Manchester United's Premier League clash against bottom side Norwich.

    United's fading hopes of clinching a top four spot are largely pinned to their next few results and today is no exception.

    United are seventh and seven points behind Spurs in fourth, who are currently in action against Brighton.

    After losing to relegation threatened Everton last week, the Red Devils now face rock-bottom Norwich at Old Trafford today with fans in open revolt.

    They are planning protests against the performances and the owners.

    And interim boss Rangnick admits some of his players are suffering.

    He said: "It might be with one or two or three of our players.

    "It seems to be like that, that the level of expectation is high and some of the players seem to struggle with their own performance.

    "But, again, there are no alibis and no excuses. We have to be ready to cope and deal with it.

    "I'm sure they are fully aware of that and I'm convinced and very positive that all the players know about this. It's a test of character and mentality."
