Manchester United will be keeping a close eye on events away from Old Trafford while getting down to business against Norwich City on Saturday afternoon (3pm). With their top-four hopes in tatters, United are set to meet the rock-bottom Canaries.
Before that gets underway, fourth-placed Tottenham take on Brighton in an early kick-off (12.30pm), while Arsenal are away to Southampton. As the high-octane quest for Champions League qualification takes center stage, here is our guide to following the United match.
What channel is Man United vs Norwich on?
In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, broadcasters and the Premier League struck up an agreement that meant supporters could watch their favorite teams – in every match – from the comfort of their own homes. However, as we continue to emerge from the devastating outbreak, normal service has been resumed on our TV screens.

What is the early Man United vs Norwich team news?
During his pre-match press conference, Rangnick confirmed that United will be missing five players as Luke Shaw (leg), Raphael Varane (unsure), Fred (hip), Scott McTominay (foot) and Edinson Cavani (calf) remain unavailable for selection . Fred was injured against Everton last time out.
Those absences have presented opportunities to academy starlets such as Alejandro Garnacho and the Argentina forward have been named in their matchday squad. Garnacho teamed up with Cristiano Ronaldo and his teammates at the club’s pre-match Lowry Hotel base overnight.
As for the Canaries, they are without Ozan Kabak (thigh), Andrew Omobamidele (back) and Adam Idah (knee) for the rest of this season, but Przemyslaw Placheta (foot) and Chelsea loanee Billy Gilmour (Covid-19) may return . The match will come too soon for Josh Sargent (foot) and Brandon Williams is ineligible against his parent club.
