Capital One Cup: Manchester United vs Norwich City match preview
A look ahead to tonight’s Capital One Cup Fixture at Old Trafford
Tuesday 29 October 2013
Manchester United will be hoping to extend their five game unbeaten run as they face Norwich tonight in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup.
Despite not losing a game since September, David Moyes’ side have looked exposed at times, precariously coming from behind to beat Stoke last weekend.
Usual strikers Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney are more than likely to be rested, with Wilfried Zaha expected to feature.
This comes after comments from Moyes suggesting that United may look to loan Zaha in January as he is yet to make a premier league appearance for the Red Devils.
Norwich will be looking to upset the clear favourites tonight as they have only won two of their last seven games. Tonight’s match-up will be the first of two trips to Manchester for Hughton’s Canaries in the space of five days, as they return to face Manchester City in the Premier League on Saturday.
KICK-OFF: Tuesday, 7.45pm
Man Utd 4 (Kagawa 3, Rooney) Norwich 0, Premier League, March 2013
Norwich 1 (Pilkington) Man Utd 0, Premier League, November 2012
