Ins and outs: Antonio Valencia is suspended for this trip to Norfolk after collecting his fifth booking of the season against Hull, while Rafael is doubtful after sustaining a groin injury. Phil Jones is also unavailable due to knee damage, but Michael Carrick could start after making his return from an Achilles problem as a substitute. Meanwhile, Norwich are definitely without Michael Turner (suspended), Anthony Pilkington, Elliot Bennett and Alexander Tettey. Jonny Howson will face a late fitness test on his back.
Betting: Official betting partner bwin have priced Norwich as outsiders at odds of 6.00, with the draw at 4.00 and United at 1.53. If you’re looking for more value, why not back Shinji Kagawa to recreate last season's hat-trick against the Canaries at odds of 81.00?
