Preview: United v Norwich

Date, time and coverage

: Saturday 26 April, 17.30 BST. The match will be shown live on Sky Sports in the UK. Follow ManUtd.com's live blog and MUTV Online's exclusive radio commentary.

Form guide: Having enjoyed a fine 4-0 away win at Newcastle United, the Reds suffered back-to-back defeats against Bayern Munich and, most recently, away at Everton. Much has changed since Sunday’s disappointing result and the players will be keen to get Ryan Giggs’ reign as interim manager off to the best possible start as Norwich City come to town. The visitors have endured a dismal recent run of form and arrive on the back of four straight defeats. Ominously for the Canaries, their run-in is particularly demanding as they face off against Chelsea and Arsenal following this weekend’s game at Old Trafford.

Ins and outs: United go into this match with a relatively clean bill of health. Having made his return from a four month lay-off at Goodison Park, Nani will be hoping to make his first Old Trafford appearance since the game against Newcastle in December. However, both Rafael and Robin van Persie remain sidelined. Norwich caretaker manager Neil Adams confirmed on Thursday that Elliot Bennett will return to the squad following knee ligament surgery, but the match will come too soon for Joseph Yobo, who is out with a calf injury.

Betting: Our official betting partner bwin has the Reds as clear favourites for this one, coming in at 1.34, with the draw at 5.00 and a win for the visitors a perceived long shot at 8.00. Why not take a punt on United making it three straight 4-0 wins at Old Trafford against the Canaries? That’s priced at 13.50.
