Manchester United will be boosted by the return of Anthony Martial and David de Gea. Anthony Martial scored the only goal in United's Europa League victory against Partizan Belgrade in their mid-week fixture. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping that United's strikeforce will have a field day against Norwich City. United have scored just 10 goals in the Premier League so far, with four of those coming in their opening day victory against Chelsea. Having seen Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez depart to Inter Milan n the summer transfer window, the Red Devils find themselves a little short of firepower this season.

The goalscoring responsibilities for the game against Norwich will rest on the shoulders of Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Daniel James. Having seen goals hard to come by this season, United will be hoping that the fully fit trio click against Norwich on Sunday. With David de Gea being afforded rest during their mid-week Europa League win over Partizan Belgrade, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have a close to full-strength squad to pick from, with only Eric Bailly being on the long term injury list for the Red Devils.
