Loads of Man Utd fans react as Martial and Mata start against Norwich

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made four changes to the staring eleven to face Norwich at Old Trafford this afternoon.

Harry Maguire returns to the side as captain after missing the derby on Tuesday with a hip problem, which wasn’t as serious an injury as many had first feared.

He continues his partnership with Victor Lindelof at the back; Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Brandon Williams retain their places a full-back in what is arguably Solskjaer’s best back four.

Anthony Martial starts up front after recovering from illness. He plays in a front three with the surprise inclusion of Juan Mata.

It appears Mata will start from the right-flank, with Andreas Pereira also in the team in midfield.

We would have preferred the Spaniard to be playing in Pereira’s number 10 role and provide the link between the midfield and attack. But it’s good to see him in the starting eleven after Jesse Lingard was ruled out.

Mata deserves in chance in the team with Solskjaer’s creative options few and far between.

United must win today against a Norwich side sat rock bottom in the table. Despite a poor run of form, United still sit in sixth place and will hope to close the gap on Chelsea in the Champions League places with victory.
