NOR vs MUN Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: With the Premier League season all but over for them, the FA Cup offers the last chance to salvage anything this season
Although Norwich City saw a daunting and gargantuan task stare them in the face as they returned to the Premier League, the three month break was one which was envisaged to play out in the side’s favour. However, nothing has unfortunately change for the bottom placed side with the team set to become the first team to make the drop this season.
Losing 1-0 to Everton the last time around, the Norwich City have now registered three defeats in a row, showings which see them way off the pace when it comes to foraging their way through survival. The club is a solid 6 points above the bottom three, a deficit way too large to erase especially with the team failing to wrench out of its impasse.
“The results have been disappointing, we wanted to take points sooner rather than later,” Norwich City’s Farke said when speaking about the imminent tie.
“A special and unexpected win is always good for the mood and the confidence so there could always be a spark that helps you keep going. But this is a different competition, this weekend we are just concentrating on the cup competition, it is our only topic, “he added.
Defeating Sheffield United the last time around, Manchester United added that result to a solid set of showings for them across the last five ties. And with the side asserting that they’ll be deploying a majorly full strength side today, this should be an easy win for them infront of the last placed Premier League opposition.

NOR vs MUN Dream11 Picks
The only reason Norwich City found themselves in the tie against Everton and within sights of salvaging a draw from that encounter was due to Tim Krull. He parried away shot after shot to keep out Everton for a magnitude of the affair, a resolute performance which will make him our pick for the encounter.
For a large part of the season, Norwich City were hailed for the unfazed manner in which they kept having a shot at their opponents. The side’s attacking ambit was serenaded with plaudits and rightfully so with the side making for a daunting attacking team.
However, as the season has traversed, the side’s shine in attack has slowly diminished with the team failing to score ever since the league has returned. And with Manchester United having emerged with a cleansheet the last time around, we envision this one moving in the way of yet another shut down for them.
It’s a rhetoric which sees us indulge in the series of the trio of Harry Maguire, Eric Bailly and Brandon Williams.
At a time when Manchester United were stuttering in the FA Cup, Brandon Williams took over reigns at the club and adhered to the side’s clarion call. The robust player has guided his side to this stage of the competition with the 3 goals and 3 assists to see us make him the first pick from the side.
CDM Scott McTominay also makes his way into our side for the imminent encounter while from Norwich City we have the indomitable and diminutive partnership of Ondrej Duda and Tom Trybull be embedded in our framework.
Coming up with two assists against Sheffield United to take his tally to the 6 this season along with being Manchester United’s top scorer with 14 goals, Marcus Rashford was always going to be an immediate pick for us. He’s partnered by Anthony Martial who scored his first hattrick for the club in the same encounter.
Elsewhere, the only source of solace for the home side this season, 13 goal man Timu Pukki will be wrapping up our set of picks for the tie.
Captain And Vice-Captain
With 14 goals this season, Rashford will captain our side while Martial is the vice-captain.
