The Sweden international suffered breathing difficulties during the second half of the 1-0 victory at Carrow Road, and was replaced by Eric Bailly as the Reds secured three points.

Brentford game postponed


Tuesday's Premier League clash will be rescheduled after a number of Covid-19 cases at United.

"Victor is currently undergoing a series of precautionary investigations," the club said in a statement. "However, he has recovered well from the episode he experienced in the match against Norwich. 

"All indications are that this is not linked to any COVID outbreak within the club."

As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, Tuesday night's Premier League match at Brentford has been postponed.

First-team operations at Carrington have also been closed down in order to minimise the risk of further infections.
