Rangnick explains decision to name unchanged Man United team

Manchester United are preparing to face Norwich City in Saturday’s late Premier League kick-off.

The Red Devils will be desperate to come away from Carrow Road with all three points after Arsenal, Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool all won their games earlier in the day.

As things currently stand in the Premier League table, United are down in seventh place, however, a win against the Canaries could see them leapfrog both Arsenal and Spurs and go level on points with West Ham United, who are in fourth.

Ahead of the hugely important domestic tie, interim manager Ralf Rangnick has named a starting 11 that sees the German stick with the same side that beat Crystal Palace 1-0 last weekend.

Although Rangnick opted to mix it up for his side’s midweek Champions League tie against Young Boys, the tactician has reverted back to what is shaping up to be his preferred domestic starting lineup.

Speaking about his decision to field an unchanged side from the team’s last Premier League outing, Rangnick, who spoke to the club’s media team, said: “That [fitness] was one of the reasons why we changed the starting eleven against Young Boys.

“The other reason was to see the other players play, in a competitive game, but [it meant] we could train the whole week with the other 11 players and for me there was no reason to change it.”
