Man Utd predicted line up for Norwich City clash – eight changes and 4-2-3-1 formation

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted at making changes for his side’s FA Cup showdown with Norwich City. The Red Devils are aiming to win the competition for the first time since 2016, when Louis van Gaal was in charge. So Express Sport will now predict their line up for the match at Carrow Road – with eight changes and a 4-2-3-1 formation.

Goalkeeper: Sergio Romero

David De Gea has been under scrutiny in recent times, with the United star making a series of costly errors throughout the course of the season.

And Solskjaer is likely to give Sergio Romero a run out against Norwich at Carrow Road.

The Argentina international is a cup specialist and a capable pair of hands. He has the trust of Solskjaer – just as he did Van Gaal and Jose Mourinho before the Norwegian.

Romero has been involved in some big matches for United throughout his time at Old Trafford, including the successful Europa League campaign of 2017.

And he’s set to be given a chance to show his worth.

Defence: Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, Eric Bailly, Brandon Williams

United’s defence has done brilliantly in recent times, conceding just three goals from their last 13 matches.

Yet Solskjaer is likely to tinker regardless.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire should retain their places in the squad as United seek a victory at Carrow Road.

Eric Bailly should get the nod over Victor Lindelof, with the Ivory Coast international impressing since his return from injury.

And Brandon Williams should get a chance to shine at left-back, with the youngster primed to replace Luke Shaw.

Midfield: Scott McTominay, Fred, Jesse Lingard

United appear to have found their best midfield under Solskjaer.

And with many big matches to play, Scott McTominay, Fred and Jesse Lingard are likely to be thrown into the mix at Carrow Road.

Nemanja Matic, Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes should all be given breathers.

Solskjaer has hinted that Lingard is facing a big time ahead, with the England international struggling for consistency throughout the course of the campaign.

And Norwich could represent the best chance for the playmaker to play his way back into form.

Attack: Daniel James, Odion Ighalo, Marcus Rashford

United could give Marcus Rashford another run out, with the England international still feeling his way back to full fitness.

And if that happens, he’s likely to be joined in attack by Daniel James and Odion Ighalo.

James was infuriating against Tottenham last Friday but Norwich should represent a chance for the Wales international to get back to his best.

And Ighalo should replace hat-trick hero Anthony Martial.

The Nigeria international shone off the bench after coming on against Sheffield United and will relish the chance to put Norwich to the sword.
