Manchester United predicted the line-up against Norwich City

6

Manchester United travel to Norwich City’s Carrow Road on Saturday night for Ralf Rangnick’s first Premier League away match as coach.

The last permanent United boss to lose his first away league game was a certain Sir Alex Ferguson in 1986, who gave in to a 2-0 loss at the hands of Oxford United. Rangnick had the luxury of resting the entire XI who started his first match at the helm of a Champions League dead rubber in the middle of the week, perhaps hinting at who can make the trip to Norfolk.

Here is the refreshed lineup that Rangnick can turn to this weekend.

High self-confidence = good shape ✔ @ D_DeGea is more than happy with their performance levels this season! ? #MUFC | #DaveSaves

David de Gea (GK) – In their four matches since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tearfully left De Gea, they have gained an abundance of form, which has prevented four more goals than the average goal scorer from keeping a couple of zeros (according to FBref).

Diogo Dalot (RB) – Given the superior attacking threat he boasts over Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Dalot could be in line for a third straight Premier League start for the first time since April 2019.

Victor Lindelof (CB) – Against the most anemic attack in Europe’s top five leagues this season (Norwich have only scored eight goals), Lindelof may not be overloaded on Saturday.

Harry Maguire (CB) – Few players will have benefited more from a mid-week rest than Manchester United’s overworked skippers.

Alex Telles (LB) – More than 50% of Manchester United’s games against Crystal Palace were locked down on the left – back’s flank, indicating the impact he had on the procedure when he stepped in for the recovering Luke Shaw.

Each. Only. Angle? ⚽️

Enjoy, Reds! ? #MUFC | @ Fred08Oficial

Scott McTominay (DM) – Set for a role at the base of Rangnick’s patented 4-2-2-2, the Scottish national team player has actually scored more goals for United in the last three seasons than Paul Pogba (12).

Fred (DM) – While his boundless off-the-ball energy has seen him tipped for good things during Rangnick, Fred can boast as many league goals as Lionel Messi and Harry Kane put together this season.

Bruno Fernandes (AM) – No Premier League player has taken or created a bigger share of his team’s shots this season than Fernandes (39%).

Jadon Sancho (AM) – The first assist that Sancho registered in its landmark campaign 2018/19 came in the dying glow of Borussia Dortmund’s opening day against Rangnicks RB Leipzig. After seeing his talent from the opponent’s dugout, the 63-year-old now has Sancho’s skills at his disposal.

Up in the light?

Cristiano Ronaldo (ST) – Manchester United’s famous number seven put more pressure in Rangnick’s debut match (11) than he has done all season (per FBref). By comparison, Ronaldo blocked his opponent only twice in 90 minutes in Solskjaer’s last match at the helm.

Marcus Rashford (ST) – Through a couple of Premier League appearances against the Canary Islands, Rashford has directly contributed to a goal every 37 minutes.
