Man Utd 4 Norwich 0. Perfect start for Ryan Giggs as United run out convincing winners. A brace apiece from Rooney and Mata keeps Norwich sweating on their Premier League status.
Should have been five. United counter and Mata sends Hernandez clean through on goal. He works his way onto his right foot, with Ruddy rooted to the spot. He then strikes across goal, but wide of the target. Unlike him to pass up an opportunity like that.
Clock ticking down, nothing is going to change now. Norwich will keep pushing, but United have so many men back that they will be determined to preserve a clean sheet.
Jones concedes a free-kick, and ambles back into position. Norwich haven't got enough in the tank to move play on quickly.
Olsson sees a speculative drive take a wicked deflection and loop up onto the top of the crossbar with De Gea beaten. From the corner, the ball drops kindly to Johnson seven yards out, but he leads back and skies a poor effort.
Norwich now keeping the ball among themselves. Whittaker eventually feeds it forward, but Snodgrass can't gather.
Elmander gets the ball back, 30 yards from his own goal. Norwich do well to work play out to Olsson, who is allowed to travel a long way. He lays off to Snodgrass, who cuts onto his less favoured right foot and curls wide of the target from 20 yards out.
Keep-ball from United in midfield. Norwich running out of energy and unable to chase it down. Hosts not looking to attack, just work triangles on halfway.
Mata looking to spread play to Young on the left, but his radar is off and the ball slips out for a throw. Norwich unable to piece anything together.
Rare work for De Gea as Johnson fires in a shot from distance which arrows towards the top corner. A smart reflex stop sees the ball parried behind. The corner comes to nothing.
United hardly busting a gut now to close down Norwich. They are happy to sit off a push up when the visitors close on the final third.
Young back to help out Evra. Hernandez then pulls out the party tricks as United counter with five men. The ball is worked out to Young, who joins the move late. Again, he cuts inside onto his right foot but fires high into the crowd.
Mata and Rooney desperate to claim the match ball. The Spanish playmaker exchanges passes with Hernadez, but there is no space. The ball squirts out to Rooney, who spots Ruddy off his link and dinks onto the roof of the net.
Jones allowed to ghost into the box from a throw deep in Norwich territory. A man not known for his goalscoring prowess has a swing from just inside the box, but slices well wide.
Final change made by Norwich. Tettey joins the action in place of Fer. Not a lot he can do to alter the course of this contest.
Elmander gathers wide on the right. Not where Norwich need him to be. Somehow, the ball breaks back his way as he cuts inside and he drives at the United defence before seeing a low effort skid inches past the post.
Young looking to catch the eye. He has been lively since coming on. He will be among those who regards a change in management to be a fresh start and an opportunity to start again.
Fer collects a floated cross at the back post, but is forced away from goal. He has Whittaker in support, but he has to settle for a throw as Evra races out to meet him.
United breaking with numbers again. Valencia leads the charge, and decides that he wants to get in on the act. Norwich back off into their own box, allowing Valencia to drill into the arms of Ruddy.
Norwich force a corner. Snodgrass takes, but whips onto the head of Jones. United can break at pace. Young gathers on the left and is always looking to cut inside onto his right foot. He is allowed to do so, but flashes a shot narrowly side from the edge of the box.
Giggs enjoying himself, and why not. While this is a big result for United after everything that has gone on, it is also a potentially damaging one for Norwich. Confidence is draining out of the Canaries.
GOAL MAN UTD - MATA. The goals keep coming! Evra does brilliantly to get to the by-line and stand a cross to the back post. Valencia knocks across the face of goal on the volley and Mata nods in from close range.
Mata out to the right for Jones. He can set himself and lift over a cross, but he dips a delivery into the six-yard box where Ruddy is waiting.
Another change being made. United's turn again. Cleverley trotting off to make way for Hernandez. Giggs has used 14 players now and will be pleased with his evening's work.
So close to a fourth. Rooney fires in a cross-shot from 25 yards out. Mata is in front of goal, all alone, and sticks out a leg trying to get a touch. He fails and the ball lands in the arms of Ruddy. Any contact and he had to score - even though he appeared to be offside.
Rain lashing down at Old Trafford, not helping to lift the mood of the visitors. They are making their second change, with Hooper sent on in place of Redmond.
Elmander dropping deep in an effort to get a touch. The ball is fed left, where Redmond heads for the corner flag. He is able to force over a low cross, but it is poor and easily cleared. Turner then fells Cleverley as United counter.
Norwich, to be fair to them, are still looking to get forward. Olsson pushing on from full-back, but Ferdinand comes across to meet him. Visitors have to settle for a throw.
Howson tries his luck from distance, but sees an ambitious effort blocked. Snodgrass and Vidic having words after a coming together. Vidic did put his head in. Referee saw nothing in it.
The scoreline is a little harsh on Norwich, but they have struggled to contain United as they have raised the tempo.
GOAL MAN UTD - MATA. Immediate impact from the substitute. Rooney's shot is parried out to Valencia. He cuts back to Jones, and his cross is turned in from close range by Mata.
Jones loses the ball, but then wins it straight back. He sends Valencia into the box, but again he can't produce a final delivery. Olsson does well to get back and steal the ball away. United won't go away, though, and Rooney is lurking on the edge of the box again. He forces Ruddy into another smart stop.
United playing their way out from the back. Everyone wants the ball again. Mata looking to drift around the middle of the field and get in between the lines. Very tight in there now.
Valencia unable to find a route around Olsson. Howson still full of running as he leads Norwich out. Redmond tries to trick his way past Mata, but is forced sideways and then sprays an awful cross-field pass out for a throw.
Giggs making his first change, and he is sending on Mata. Welbeck is the man to make way. He had been operating down the middle, so United are looking to tighten things up and hold on to what they have.
Snodgrass goes for goal, and hits the target. His effort is straight at De Gea, though, who opts to punch clear. The ball is returned to the box, and this time De Gea comes through the crowd to claim confidently and cling on.
Howson sends Snodgrass down the right. He cuts inside Vidic, who grabs around the Norwich winger's waist. Free-kick to the visitors on the edge of the box, almost level with the right-hand edge of the area.
Van Wolfswinkel wins a free-kick wide on the right. His final involvement as he is replaced by Elmander. Norwich striker not impressed to see his number go up. Snodgrass' set-piece is flicked into the hands of De Gea.
Welbeck springing out on the counter. He holds the ball up, finding Carrick. He tees up Rooney 25 yards out. He sets his sights on the bottom corner again, but Ruddy is able to save comfortably down to his right.
Norwich rocking badly at the moment. They need to regroup and ensure that the floodgates don't open. United full of confidence - remarkable what a couple of goals will do!
A one-two between Kagawa and Valencia doesn't come off, but United are looking a lot sharper now. Evra bombing forward again and sees a shot deflected into Welbeck. He controls and shoots 18 yards out, and Ruddy has to parry away. From the corner, Vidic arrives at the back post, but nods over from six yards out.
Kagawa causing problems again. He is drifting all over the place. Welbeck and Valencia combine, but the latter is muscled off the ball as he darts into the area. United have Norwich pegged back inside their own box.
Redmond leading a counter and finding Snodgrass. He does really well to slip past Evra and get to the by-line. He cuts towards the penalty spot, but there is no-one there in yellow. Van Wolfswinkel had gone into the six-yard box.
Kagawa drifting into space as he runs across the line in front of Norwich's back four. He tries to feed a pass back into the path of Welbeck, but a heavy touch lets him down. Norwich scramble clear.
Rooney now on a hat-trick and chasing everything. Second goal should help to calm United down. Evra concedes a free-kick on halfway, but the hosts are soon back in position and keeping the back door bolted.
That could be curtains for Norwich. They have struggled for goals all season and have offered nothing as yet to suggest that they are capable of getting two here.
GOAL MAN UTD - NORWICH. The home side double their lead. A touch of fortune for United as Rooney collects 25 yards out. He drifts to the edge of the box, slips as he shoots, but sees the ball nestle in the bottom corner.
Rooney teases a floated pass towards the back post. Turner up again for Norwich to nod clear. He has been solid today and has organised his defence well. Only one lapse in concentration has the Canaries behind. That's all it takes though!
Evra cuts in a long way off the left flank. He leaves the ball for Carrick. It soon comes back his way, but Welbeck and Kagawa then get in each other's way as they try to move the Norwich defence around.
No changes at the interval by either side. Expect both managers to turn to their benches sooner rather than later. Fresh legs might help to liven things up.
Players back out for the second half. United out early. Giggs obviously didn't have too much to say!
Reza says: "There's been a couple of errors from Kagawa and Cleverley but I'm very pleased what I'm seeing much more like United!"
Rifat Ahmed says: "All of a sudden we look a different side with real pace and power, the only sad thing is that Valencia has been poor tonight with his crossing but it is a good performance after a terrible week now get Mata on get some more goals."
Andrew Morris says:"Not looking much better Man U. Welbeck and Cleverley not good enough, get Mata on!"
Kevin Pratt says: "All the United fans think everything is great again with Giggs in charge! Priceless! I'm waiting for the Fergie masterstroke so suggest Giggs comments to begin!"
Mike Oxlong says: "I think that goal will shake utd up for 2nd half. Desperate times for Norwich I think. Rooney to score a free kick and a header for a great hat trick, come on Giggsy!"
Jack Stacey says: "If United have a fantastic second half and do well in the last few games they MUST consider Giggs for the job!"
Daniel Jones says: "It might only be 1-0 but there's certainly more shape and direction to United now, and each attack has more of a purpose. Kagawa has made a couple of errors, as has Cleverley. Mata on for Kagawa, Nani on for Cleverley, let Mata operate in his favourite position and push Nani out on the left, should win 3-0 as I suggested earlier. Happy with what i've seen but need to be more clinical."
Remember you can also bet in-play at Skybet.com. United are now 1/16 to take the spoils, with Norwich 20/1 and the draw 7/1. You can get 4/1 on the hosts winning 3-0.

Man Utd 1 Norwich 0. Giggs' men hold a narrow leaf at the interval courtesy of Rooney's penalty. Not a classic, but still all to play for.
Jones bombing down the right, but two yellow shirts go with him. Valencia then spreads play to Evra. He clips into the box, where Turner can put in a diving headed clearance.
Vidic glances back to De Gea. Norwich not looking to close him when he's on the ball. They need to start doing. Confidence growing in the United ranks as Welbeck puts in a clever flicked pass. No way through on this occasion.
Norwich trying to get back in the game before the break. Redmond with good strength to hold the ball up and win a free-kick inside the United half. Big men sent forward from the back. Redmond floats the ball into the box, De Gea comes through the crowd to punch.
Jones sends over another cross from the right. Norwich can deal with this as Ruddy steps forward to claim from in front of Welbeck. Jones' cross which led to the penalty was fed low from the edge of the box and slipped through a maze of legs before finding Welbeck. Whittaker was surprised to see it come that far and was clumsy as he dived in.
Goal has got the crowd going again. The game needed a spark and that might be it. Norwich now have to step things up as they can't afford to be losing games at this stage.
GOAL MAN UTD - ROONEY. The hosts edge in front. Rooney makes no mistake from the spot as he side-foots into the bottom corner. Ruddy opts to dive to his right, as the ball disappears to his left.
Valencia allowed to drift towards the box by Olsson. As he enters the area, he drills low from a tight angle. He makes good connection and Ruddy does well to get down low and parry the ball away from goal. Valencia tries again, finding Jones. He feeds over a harmless cross, which slips past everybody and Whittaker ends up tripping Welbeck. Penalty to United.
Kagawa does well to stick out a leg and get something on a teasing cross from Jones. He goes with his right boot when sliding in left of the goal and can only prod wide of the target. Ferdinand then forced to drill long once more.
Kagawa drifting in from the left. Rooney clips a looping pass back into his path as he darts into the box. Norwich have enough bodies back to bundle the ball to safety. Better from the hosts.
Norwich growing in confidence, but again are forced back to Ruddy as they enjoy a spell of possession. He has to go long and United get the ball back. They do nothing with it and Redmond can cross again from the left. He finds the chest of Vidic.
Redmond running at Jones, but the United man is smart enough to back off to the edge of the box and then put in a timely challenge. No pace in United's counter, with Rooney and Welbeck moving towards the ball rather than in behind. Flag then goes up against Rooney.
Jones looking for Evra, but his pass never looks like getting there. Easily cut out and Norwich can push out. Groans in the stands. Visitors keep possession, but end up back at the feet of Ruddy. Both sides struggling to create anything.
Kagawa spins away from Snodgrass, but finds Rooney is being marked by two yellow shirts. Martin able to prod the ball out for a throw. United go backwards. Ferdinand with an aimless lump forward, which Turner nods out.
Ruddy hammers long. Evra gathers. Frustration builds for the hosts as a pass intended for Valencia sails over his head and into the crowd. Giggs immediately down to the touchline, arms spread.
Rooney driving forward from deep and flicking a pass out to Valencia with the outside of his boot. He tees up Cleverley on the edge of the box. Another air shot as he swings at the ball, but sees it hit his standing leg. Not the best!
Cleverley wants far too long on the ball on halfway and sees the ball prodded off his toe. It runs kindly for Van Wolfswinkel, but he has no support and is crowded out as he ponders whether to hold up play or shoot from distance.
Carrick can't find Evra down the left, so settles for a throw. Norwich with 10 men behind the ball. One of those, Fer, reclaims possession and is tripped by Cleverley. No flow to the game at the moment.
Olsson fires into the sky. Vidic judges the flight of the ball well. United stuck in the middle of the park again. Howson eager to keep them there, but slides into a full-blooded challenge on Carrick and catches the United man. Yellow card comes out.
Ferdinand looks long, then goes short to Carrick. United not moving the ball quickly enough. Norwich able to keep them at arm's length very comfortably.
Ferdinand back to De Gea as United start again. Fans urging the hosts to attack - not happening at the moment. Ball ends up behind for a United goal kick.
Howson driving through the middle. Snodgrass running from right to left, and is picked out. He has Redmond wide of him, with space in which to line up a cross. Delivery from the left flank is poor, with Redmond lifting the ball high over the head of Van Wolfswinkel in the middle.
Kagawa cross-field to Valencia. He fires into Carrick, and gets the ball back. Jones overlapping on the right. His cross is only half-cleared to Rooney. He tries an ambitious volley 12 yards out, but swings at fresh air.
Turner out to the right now to follow a run from Welbeck. United work the ball to Valencia, who again fails to pick out a team-mate when well placed. Vidic fells Howson as Norwich look to counter. Giggs off his seat again.
Evra well forward again and feeding a low cross into the feet of Kagawa. He needs to take a few touches to control and find a yard of space. Turner slides in to block the shot and concede a corner. Johnson nods Rooney's delivery to safety.
Neat passing football from United - that is until Valencia cuts inside and tries to exchange passes with Welbeck. The return ball is not the best and Norwich can clear. United keep the pressure on as they force Turner to slice out for a throw.
Rooney goes short to Kagawa. He looks to get to the by-line, around Fer, but is nudged in the back and ends up rolling the ball behind for a goal kick. Rooney soon back on the ball. No space for a shot 25 yards out.
Vidic beats Howson to the ball on two occasions - good strength. United happy to edge their way forward. Norwich looking solid in the middle of the park. Welbeck drifts left again and finds Evra. He gets to the by-line and wins a corner.
Welbeck now wide on the left. He cuts inside and has Evra in support. The ball breaks off his chest and is hacked clear. Norwich unable to hold possession long enough to pose problems. Giving the ball away far too cheaply.
Howson looks left to Snodgrass. He tries to run Ferdinand, before cutting back to the edge of the area. Redmond then takes over, but trips 25 yards from goal. He looks towards the referee, but gets nothing as he obviously lost his footing.
De Gea drills a free-kick long. Welbeck bundles on to Rooney, who goes wide to Valencia. He plays a one-two with Welbeck and drives into the box. A snap-shot is blocked at source by Turner.
Rooney tracking back and clutches at Fer's shirt. Norwich man goes down, free-kick just over halfway. Olsson floats the ball forward. Vidic nods up, rather than out. No way through for Whittaker when he collects wide on the right.
Ferdinand sweeps left to Evra. Norwich out to him quickly. United working through midfield. Welbeck drops deep to get involved, and is tripped from behind by Van Wolfswinkel. Free-kick 40-odd yards out. Played short, then Cleverley squanders possession.
Olsson can only glance a headed clearance into the path of Welbeck behind him. He takes a touch to set himself 12 yards out and drills an angled drive goalwards. Ruddy parries behind. Corner played short. Ball worked to Rooney, who sees a dangerous low cross hooked away by Turner.
Norwich looking to close quickly now, with Johnson trying to rush the man in possession. The Canaries have to try and break up play in areas where they can hurt United. Not the fast start from United that we were expecting.
Olsson back-peddling and closed by Valencia. His clearance is poked out for a throw. United soon back on the ball. Ferdinand clips forward, but over the head of Rooney. Norwich go back to their keeper.
United looking to play their way out from the back. Can be risky at times, but it does draw opponents out and create space in midfield. Cleverley unable to find Rooney with a raking pass.
Warning to United that they cannot afford to switch off at the back. They concede a free-kick on their right. Wasted by Redmond as he fires into one-man wall Valencia. Ball ricochets out for a throw.
Ruddy forced into a hurried clearance, but gets the ball to the relative safety of midfield. Norwich then break right with Snodgrass. He crosses to the back post. Van Wolfswinkel up and nodding across goal. He is penalised for a nudge in the back of Jones. Howson puts the ball in the net, but the whistle had long gone.
Giggs out onto the touchline. Another huge cheer goes up. On the field, Vidic nods out for a throw inside his own half. Kagawa slides in on Whittaker, but is beaten. Norwich full-back rides that challenge, but not a second. Rooney then slips for a second time. May have to look at his footwear.
Vidic fires onto the head of Welbeck, who glances into the path of Valencia. He gets his head up, but Turner is across to block another cross. Delivery not the best from Valencia so far, but he is getting into useful positions. Norwich can make their way back up to halfway.
Olsson trying to slow things down as he takes his time with another throw. He gets the ball back and goes square. Norwich have to hack clear, and are soon retreating once more. Jones with a throw in the Norwich half.
Rooney over the set-piece. He delivers to the near post, where Carrick is unable to get a touch. Cleverley racing around trying to get the ball back, but concedes a throw. United closing very quickly. High tempo demanded by Giggs.
Norwich on the ball for the first time. They try a little too much down their right. United spring out, but Valencia has to go go backwards on halfway as the ball sits up a little high. Patient build-up from the hosts. Rooney found on the edge of the box. His shot is blocked before Valencia sees a cross deflected behind for a corner.
Kagawa over the top for Welbeck to chase. He is down the middle, where he prefers to be, but a clipped pass skids off the surface and through to Ruddy on the slide.
Welbeck tries to slip through three defenders on the edge of the box, but is crowded out and the ball runs through to Ruddy. He clears long. Norwich can't hold up play in the United half. Rooney slips in midfield, Johnson fires down the left towards no-one and Ferdinand can usher behind for a goal kick.
Expect United to start fast. Fans already chanting 'attack, attack, attack'. Valencia down the right flank, but cross is cut out. Jones pushing on from full-back, but is halted by sliding challenge from Olsson. Throw to the hosts.
Giggs applauded all the way to the dugout. A smile for Neil Adams, a clap for the crowd, a few autographs signed and then up to his seat. He looks very focused.
Players out onto the field. As expected, great atmosphere inside Old Trafford. Noise level goes through the roof as Giggs emerges. Answer to the biggest question of the day - Giggs is wearing a suit.
The teams are in the tunnel so we will have to leave the feedback there for now. There will be further opportunities to have your say at half-time and at the final whistle.
Daniel Cannon from Ireland says: "Really looking forward to the game as a United fan! Looking for an all out attack performance from revitalised United players! Another hat trick for Kagawa against Norwich?"
Eddie Fogg says: "The only change I would have made would be @juanmata8 for Welbeck in a 4-3-2-1 #ManUtd 4-0 win."
James Woods says: "Glad Giggsy has been given the chance to lead United! Dissapointed that people are slating his selection, 3-1 to United! GGMU"
Simon Daley says: "To refer to Welbeck as 'a tree that doesn't bear a single fruit' is extremely harsh. He's an excellent young prospect who deserves to be developed further. He was outstanding against Bayern this year, and Real Madrid last year for instance. Not many players can take the game to such top European teams with such confidence. He's also scored more goals this season than any other. It's important we develop our own young talent, rather than just trying to buy success like so many other 'top' sides. Anywho, I'm going for a 2-1 United win."
Logan Peachey says: "Ryan Giggs has torn teams apart since he was just a young boy so what's to stop him now as manager? As a life long Manchester United fan, Norwich are no real threat to Manchester United and I think this should be a walk in the park for United especially with Giggs in charge. Giggs should be Sir Ryan Giggs and the final score 3-1 Manchester United!"
Rifat Ahmed is looking for a five-star showing from the hosts: "So a new chapter under Giggsy; I can't wait to see Kagawa play full match and start a match from the beginning, so no Mata what is this Giggs but who cares if we can get a good performance under him. I hope Van Gaal comes for short role and after 5 years get Jurgen Klopp....5-0 to UTD"
Paul Prince is another questioning Giggs side: "Really not sure on Giggs's 1st XI: surprised to see Mata on the bench and Cleverley shouldn't be a starter, where's the youth?"
Rizi Ferati says: "As everyone can see, Giggs has chosen in starting line-up Welbeck & Cleverly who are both trees that don't give a single fruit and has left Mata out, I personally think this is wrong, but i still go for a united win 3-1."
Lauren says: "I believe Giggs could handle the pressure if he were to be the full time manager. He learnt from the best & knows every inch of Carrington & Old Trafford. Also people question the reasoning behind fans supporting Manchester United but you could say the same about potential managers. You could question their reasoning for wanting the job but with Giggs what you see is what you get & he has no ulterior motive for taking the job. However I'm a little surprised that he hasn't played Mata, but I think he'll bring Mata & chicha on as subs."
Giggs talking to Geoff Shreeves. He says 'lads are looking forward to it and so am I'. Admits the last few days have been 'surreal'. On selection, he says 'Fella is unfortunate not to make the bench but will be involved in coming weeks'. Says past performances against Norwich have influenced his decisions.
Jamie Redknapp telling Sky Sports 1 HD that he believes Giggs could be the right man to take United forward. You get the feeling he would have to win the last four games of the season to stand any chance. Louis van Gaal still firm favourite with the bookmakers.
Jack Sibbald not convinced by the home selection: "Can't believe that Giggs has not started with Mata and instead chooses Cleverley. What is all that about? Don't think he's gonna get the permanent managers job!"
James feels Norwich are capable of ruining Giggs' big day: "Don't write off #ncfc yet! Anything is possible & don't ever stop believing! Norwich to win 3-2! #ncfc #CmonYouYellows"
A little over half-an-hour until kick-off at Old Trafford, keep your pre-match thoughts and predictions coming in to Chris.Burton@bskyb.com or @Burtytweets.
Harry Allman was hoping for more from the Giggs XI: "Really disappointed by this team in honesty! Thought Giggs would play United way and develop youth such as Wilson, Januzaj and Smalling rather than sticking with the players who have consistently underperformed this season! I can understand the starting team but to not have Januzaj or Wilson on the bench is a bit disappointing for me! Still a 3 0 win though."
Mohammed Usmaan says: "Got a feeling Man Utd will win this easily either 2-0 or 4-0. I would have liked the likes of Mata, Nani and Hernandez to start though."
Thomas Sutcliffe is feeling optimistic: "First game for a while approaching without trepidation, as much sympathy and respect as I had for Moyes, slightly relieved he has gone, clean slate, expecting an energetic and expressive display from us, 4-1 United, with Rooney among goals scorers, Giggs will tear you apart!"
Corey Bishop says: "Why is everyone writing off Norwich? Just cos Giggs is interim doesn't mean United could automatically turn everything around?"
Good news for Norwich fans coming in from Craven Cottage - Hull have hit back from two goals down to level against Fulham. Canaries have their head above water again.
Looking at Giggs' first selection, no surprise to see him include the vast experience of Vidic, Ferdinand and Evra. Welbeck and Cleverley also drafted back in by United. Norwich recall Van Wolfswinkel as he continues his search for a first goal since the opening weekend.
Dan Morris is another tipping a big home win: "I'm going for a big game tonight! Ryan Giggs' first game in charge, I reckon the players are gonna go for it! 4-0 me thinks!"
Luke Hofert says: "I predict Man U to get a 3-1 win with a goal from either Wayne Rooney or Juan Mata! #GGMU"
Hardy Badhen says: "Got a feeling Giggsy gonna show no mercy today my prediction 5-0 #ComeonUnited !"
Sam Biggs is quickest out of the blocks with a pre-match comment: "Giggs should be offered the Manchester United job, he knows the United way and with the Class of '92 coaching staff, they will be able to attract the young top players as they will know they can develop under the United Legends. Attacking, flowing football today United to win 4-0."
Norwich team: Ruddy, Whittaker, Martin, Turner, Olsson, Johnson, Fer, Howson, Snodgrass, Redmond, van Wolfswinkel. Subs: Bunn, Hooper, Gutierrez, Elmander, R Bennett, Tettey, Josh Murphy.
Man Utd team: De Gea, Jones, Vidic, Ferdinand, Evra, Valencia, Carrick, Cleverley, Kagawa, Welbeck, Rooney. Subs: Lindegaard, Smalling, Mata, Chicharito, Nani, Young, Fletcher.
You can also bet in-play throughout the game at Skybet.com. United start as strong favourites at 30/100, with Norwich 19/2 and the draw 9/2. You can get United to win 2-0 Price Boosted to 7/1.
Will Giggs be celebrating a first win as United boss? Is he a serious candidate to take the role full-time? Can Norwich offer their survival bid a timely shot in the arm? Let me know your thoughts.
How do you see today's game going? Feel free to offer your opinions by contacting me direct at Chris.Burton@bskyb.com or @Burtytweets.
They have lost their last four in a row - two under the guidance of Neil Adams - and know things are not going to get any easier as they take in the most testing of run-ins.
Norwich need something for entirely different reasons, with their top flight status hanging in the balance - with two quick-fire goals for Fulham against Hull having dropped the Canaries into the bottom three.
If United are to clamber into the top six and secure a guaranteed place in next season's Europa League, they really need to claim maximum points today.
Giggs makes his bow this afternoon, and it is safe to assume that the home fans will be fully behind him, his Class of 92 coaching staff and those selected to lead the pursuit of three points.
It's fair to say it's been a busy week at the Theatre of Dreams, with David Moyes relieved of his managerial duties on Tuesday and United stalwart Ryan Giggs offered the opportunity to take charge of first team affairs on a temporary basis.
