Norwich City v Man United: The essential info

Friday 26 June 2020 08:00

Manchester United return to Emirates FA Cup duty on Saturday, when the Reds travel to Carrow Road to face Norwich City.

Over three months have passed since our fifth-round tie against Derby County at Pride Park, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side now face the Canaries for a place in the semi-finals and, of course, another trip to Wembley Stadium.

United have already beaten Daniel Farke's relegation-threatened side twice in the Premier League this season, with a 3-1 result in Norfolk followed up by a 4-0 thrashing at Old Trafford.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of the tie, including what TV channel the game will be on, the referee and more...

Key match info

Saturday 27 June | FA Cup | Carrow Road | 17:30 BST | Live build-up on MUTV from 16:25 BST | Referee: Jonathan Moss


Saturday's FA Cup tie will be broadcast live in the UK, on BBC One, with kick-off at 17:30 BST. MUTV subscribers can watch exclusive build-up in the Match Day Live show from 16:25 BST, followed by live commentary of the game itself. With fans unable to attend the matches, our Season Ticket holders have been offered free access to MUTV Digital for two months, and can watch match highlights the following day, along with the rest of our exclusive content.


Our march to the Wembley arch began all the way back in early January, as the Reds came up against regular adversaries Wolverhampton Wanderers. Unlike the previous campaign, which saw the Reds defeated at Molineux, a goalless draw in the Black Country forced a replay, and Juan Mata scored the winner when the teams reconvened at Old Trafford.

Next came League One outfit Tranmere Rovers, who had defeated Premier League Watford to make it to the fourth round. There would be no such giantkilling at Prenton Park, as United cruised through 6-0 thanks to strikes from Harry Maguire, Diogo Dalot, Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood.

Days before the suspension of football, the Reds then faced the Rams, after making the trip to Pride Park. A rare goal for Luke Shaw, followed up by a brace from Odion Ighalo, ensured our progression through to the quarter-finals at the expense of Wayne Rooney and co.

The draw for the last four of the FA Cup will take place on Sunday evening (28 June), during the half-time interval of the game between Newcastle United and Manchester City, which kicks off at 18:30 BST. It will be available to view on BBC One within the UK, while fans elsewhere in the world can view it via the Emirates FA Cup's official Facebook, Twitter and YouTube accounts.

Should we qualify, United will be ball no.3.


Jonathan Moss will be the man in the middle for Saturday's game. The Yorkshire-based referee took charge of the 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur in our first match back after the restart, and will be assisted by Edward Smart and Peter Kirkup. Andrew Madley will be the fourth official.

VAR will also be in operation at Carrow Road, and Simon Hooper will oversee any potential incidents, with Derek Eaton assisting.
