Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made eight changes to his Manchester United starting XI that will face Norwich City in the FA Cup quarter-finals at Carrow Road this evening.
The game presents the Reds with a great chance to progress through to the semi-finals, and Solskjaer will be confident the side he has selected will be strong enough to get the job done.
Only Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Bruno Fernandes retain their places from the team that strolled past Sheffield United at Old Trafford on Wednesday.
It’s great to see Eric Bailly make his first start since the restart, after impressing before the enforced break.
Diogo Dalot has also earned a welcome start after scoring in the competition this season against Tranmere.
Juan Mata and Bruno Fernandes were linking up brilliantly in the immediate aftermath of the Portuguese playmaker’s arrival and it will be interesting to see if they can rekindle a promising partnership this evening.
Meanwhile, Timothy Fosu-Mensah has been selected on the bench, the first time he has made a United matchday squad for over three years.
We think this side, plus the fire power from the bench in Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood, should have more than enough to sweep aside the Premier League’s bottom-placed team.
It is crucial United don’t get complacent and put in a professional display this evening.

Not sure why Jesse is in the 11, other than that not too bad.

Why risk Fernandes? I don’t understand why Williams doesn’t play either tbh

Decent line up that..huge game for Lingard, his game has gone back massively since the last WC…he needs to show everyone he can still influence a game at this level.
