Manchester United are without a win in their last five games in all competitions and manager Louis van Gaal is under immense pressure ahead of Norwich’s visit on Saturday.
The Premier League giants have tasted consecutive defeats against Wolfsburg and Bournemouth and after what happened to Jose Mourinho yesterday, Van Gaal will be worried about his future as well.
Chelsea’s poor start to the season cost Jose Mourinho his job and Van Gaal is heading down a similar route. The Dutchman will be aware that he needs to turn it around and quick.
Manchester United are six points behind table-topping Leicester City following a 2-1 defeat at Bournemouth last weekend.
However, United have been impressive at home this season and are yet to be beaten in seven home league matches.
As for Norwich, the away side have only beaten Manchester United twice in the Premier League, both times away from home.
Norwich are in a terrible run of form and have won just one of their last 11 games in all competitions.
