Team news, key stats and prediction ahead of Norwich vs Man Utd in the Premier League.
Norwich head coach Daniel Farke reported no fresh injury concerns for Sunday's Premier League match against Manchester United.
Centre-back Ben Godfrey, who had hernia surgery over the international break, went off early in the second half of the goalless draw at Bournemouth, but is expected to feature.
Winger Onel Hernandez should also be involved despite some knee pain after his return to action.
Goalkeeper Ralf Fahrmann (groin) and midfielder Mario Vrancic (calf) plus defenders Christoph Zimmermann (foot), Timm Klose (knee) and Grant Hanley (groin) all continue their own rehabilitation.
Midfielder Paul Pogba remains out for Manchester United, but goalkeeper David de Gea will be ready to return to the starting line-up.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ruled out the Frenchman due to an ongoing ankle issue, but expects to be able to call upon De Gea at Carrow Road after missing the Europa League match at Partizan Belgrade.
Left-back Luke Shaw and midfielder Nemanja Matic will be assessed after working on their fitness in Dubai, while defenders Axel Tuanzebe and Diogo Dalot missed the trip to Serbia through injury.

- None of the last 12 Premier League meetings between Norwich and Man Utd have finished level, with Norwich winning three and losing nine, since a 2-2 draw in December 1993.
- Norwich could become the first promoted side to win a Premier League game against both Manchester clubs in the same season since both Wolves and Portsmouth did so in 2003-04.
- Manchester United are winless in eight Premier League away games (D3 L5), their longest such run in the top-flight since a streak of 11 between February-September 1989. They've also failed to score more than once in any of these eight games, their longest such run since May 1987 (11 games).
- Manchester United's next goal will see them become the first team in Premier League history to score 2000 goals in the competition.
- Norwich's Teemu Pukki was involved in eight goals in his first five Premier League games (6 goals, 2 assists) - since then, he has failed to score or assist in any of his last four games.
There have been some good scalps for Norwich so far this season.
Daniel Farke has understood how to get a clean sheet. How dare they? Coming away with a clean sheet in a Premier League game! The Soccer Saturday panel does not take much to confuse, but where did that come from?
Manchester United were not inspiring against Liverpool, but I said they would regard it like a win if they came away with a point, which they did. Their team is so vulnerable, but can I convince myself that Norwich could beat another Manchester club? I don't think I can.
