Everyone has that one team they love playing and it appear Marcus Rashford thrives against Norwich. The England international has been involved in four goals in his two Premier League games against Norwich (3 goals, 1 assist).
As a result, he is averaging a goal involvement every 37 minutes against the Canaries in the competition.
Norwich manager Dean Smith has already beaten Manchester United once in the Premier League this season, winning 1-0 with Aston Villa in September.
Should he beat United against this afternoon, he could become the first manager since Andy Aitken in 1908-09 to beat the Red Devils with two different clubs within the same top-flight season.
Three of Mason Greenwood’s four Premier League goals this season have come away from home. As a result, he has become Manchester United’s highest league goalscorer away from Old Trafford this season.
Therefore, the responsibility to get the Red Devils over the line this afternoon could fall to the England international.
Ralf Rangnick could make history with an away win against Norwich is none of the previous four permanent United managers have lost their first league game on the road.
The last manager to do so was Sir Alex Ferguson at Oxford United in November 1986 when Manchester United won 2-0.
Manchester United are notorious for struggling against newly promoted sides. They have failed to register a win against one in their last four Premier League matches – losing 4-1 to Watford earlier this season.
However, the Red Devils haven’t gone five league games in a row without a win against such sides since a run of seven between January 1992 and January 1993.
Norwich have lost eight of their last 10 Premier League meetings with Manchester United – having only won two. They have also lost the last three in a row. However, they have never lost four in a row against them in the competition.
‘We did well against Palace, not everything was perfect but quite a few things worked well, we were always on the front foot and we had control on the game.
‘Now it’s about taking the next steps, it’s a lot about trying to be on field, we don’t have that many training sessions, this week we had a few but with the full group, we always had a couple of players from the U19s and U21s to train with us. But it’s now about taking the next steps.
‘I think the basis of what we showed against Crystal Palace was good, we didn’t allow them to score, we didn’t allow them too many opportunities. We had a clean sheet.
‘This is again the ambition we have now we have Norwich away. They have improved since they changed managers.
‘They are a little bit more direct, a little more vertical than they were under Daniel Farke. It will be a challenge to play at Carrow Road but we want to improve our performance, build on what we showed against Crystal Palace and then hopefully get the next win tomorrow.’
Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick cannot continue to play Marcus Rashford in his favoured 4-2-2-2 formation, according to former Red Devil Paul Parker.
