There is added incentive for the United players and they will be out to impress once again as they look to play their way into interim manager Ralf Ragnick's plans for the remainder of the season.
Raphael Varane, Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial continue to be sidelined for the time being due to various injury problems, however, on a more positive note, Edinson Cavani has returned to full training and is in contention to feature against the Canaries.
Meanwhile, Norwich are not without their fitness problems with Matthias Normann and Sam Byram ruled out for this fixture.
There are also concerns in the Norwich camp over a number of unnamed players who are awaiting the results of PCR tests.
Norwich: Krul, Gibson, Hanley, Kabak, Aarons, McLean, Gilmour, Lees Melou, Giannoulis, Sargent, Pukki.
United: De Gea, Dalot, Lindelof, Maguire, Telles, McTominay, Fred, Sancho, Fernandes, Rashford, Ronaldo.
Ones to watch
When it comes to players to watch for United, it is simply too difficult to look past arguably the greatest player of all time, Cristiano Ronaldo.
The United legend has carried his side at times this season and will look to get back on the scoresheet this week having registered six goals and two assists in the league this season.
As for Norwich, Teemu Pukki may not be able to replicate the fine goalscoring form he displays in the Championship once his side make the step up in level that comes with the Premier League, however, his record so far this season is more than admirable.
The Fin has scored five goals so far in the league which is a more than respectable tally at this stage of the season in a team that sits at the bottom of the table.
Whilst he may not be the most attractive name in football, Pukki is one of those players that can never be written off and could prove to be a threat to David De Gea, Harry Maguire and their defensive colleagues.
Head to head
United have recorded two wins, two defeats and a draw in their last five league games, form which leaves them in sixth place. Meanwhile, Norwich still remain in last place despite picking up two wins and a draw in their last five games.
As for the direct head-to-head, the Red Devils have won four of their last five matches against the Canaries with the last defeat coming back in 2015.
How to watch on TV
The game will be broadcast live on Sky Sports with kick-off set for 5.30PM.
