Manchester United vs. Norwich: view from the oppo

Norwich City have are unbeaten in the League Cup against Manchester United. Ok, the two clubs may have only met three times, a two legged semi final in 1975 (which ended as 2-2 at Old Trafford and 1-0 to Norwich at Carrow Road) and a 4-1 drubbing in the 3rd round away in East Anglia sixteen years before Adnan Januzaj was even born (bet that makes you feel old), but history is on the side of the Canaries. United hammered Norwich 4-0 in March, with a superb hattrick from Shinji Kagawa and an excellent long range effort by Wayne Rooney.

The fixture will surely give David Moyes a chance to rotate his side and give the likes if Zaha, and Hernandez a run out. United travel to struggling Fulham on Saturday afternoon and the Manchester United manager will want to ensure he has a full strength squad, so expect the likes of Rooney, van Persie and Carrick to be rested.

Manchester United travelled to Elland Road for the first time in eight years to record a 3-0 win over their old rivals. United fielded a much weakened side that included Michael Carrick at centre half and Federico Macheda on the left wing. Michael Owen bagged a brace whilst Ryan Giggs, who captained the side, scored the third goal in a very convincing win. United also gave first team debuts to Ezekiel Fryers, Paul Pogba and Larnell Cole – who will no doubt want to experience more football in this competition.

Here we discuss the talking points of the 3-0 victory over Leeds United in the League Cup. You can discuss the victory over Leeds United in our forum or in the comments section of this blog.
