Manchester United will face Norwich City at Carrow Road in the Premier League for the first time in just over three years this afternoon. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may be under pressure from factions of online ‘fans’ and the media, who always seem to have an axe to grind but in the past two matches, results have improved *slightly*.

United drew 1-1 with Premier League leaders, Liverpool, last Sunday at Old Trafford, also earning a victory away from home, beating Partizan Belgrade 1-0 in the UEFA Europa League on Thursday evening. More needs to be done but as injured players are returning to the squad, in times, things will start to get better.
