Manchester United could get within a point of the Premier League top four if they beat Norwich City at Carrow Road on 7 May.

Where to watch live

Kick-off is set for 12.45pm BST. The game will be broadcast live on BT Sport 1.


Danny Welbeck scored the only goal of the game as Norwich City slipped to a 1-0 defeat at Arsenal on 30 April to stay at the 19th place on the league table. The Canaries can move ahead of 17th-placed Newcastle United – at least temporarily – by beating Manchester United in the early kick-off.

Alex Neil has no fresh injury concerns. Long-term injury victims Alex Tettey, Andre Wisdom, Ryan Bennett and Timm Klose all remain absent.

Louis van Gaal's Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw by champions Leicester City at Old Trafford in their last outing, but can close the gap on fourth-placed Manchester City to just one point by winning at Carrow Road. The Red Devils have won four of their last five encounters with Norwich across all competitions.

Marouane Fellaini starts a three-game ban for violent conduct and is unavailable for the visitors.

What managers say

Alex Neil: "We performed really well [against Arsenal]. We had good opportunities, particularly in the first half where Nathan Redmond pulled three saves out of Petr Cech. We looked the more likely to score, our game plan worked well, we frustrated Arsenal and limited a really good side to very little in the game. If we perform as well as we did today and produce three performances like that then we will pick up points."

Louis van Gaal: "We have to win our matches because otherwise we cannot be in the first four – that's the pressure that we have. We have to fight until the end, and then we have still a title (FA Cup) to win. We have to assess the tiredness of the players because there's an overload of matches, so maybe I have to rotate. Every week you have something that you don't like, but I think we can manage."
