LIVE TEAM NEWS: Norwich City v Manchester United

Norwich City take on Manchester United at Carrow Road this evening and you can watch live reaction to the starting XIs with our reporters from just before 4.30pm.

The Canaries are looking to move off the bottom of the Premier League and United are trying to keep pace with the top four, after both recently changed head coach.

City are without loan left-back Brandon Williams, who isn’t allowed to face his parent club, and have Covid=19 concerns in the squad – with Christos Tzolis believed to have tested positive.

Norway midfielder Mathias Normann is expected to miss a third game but is close to returning from a pelvis problem and could return when Aston Villa visit on Tuesday.

Kosovo winger Milot Rashica has also missed the last two matches, with a groin injury, and is hoping to return later this month.
