Subs: O’Hara, C. Evans, Willock, A. Fletcher

Nick Powell starts tonight for Warren Joyce’s U21s having returned from loan spell against Leicester City which was ended recently. There have been plenty of reports suggesting Powell’s poor attitude was a major reason behind his failed loan spell, so he has got something to prove now he is back at United.

Jesse Lingard makes his first start since suffering a serious injury on the opening day of the season against Swansea and Louis van Gaal will be delighted to have him back in action as he is a big fan of Lingard.

Tom Thorpe is still injured so doesn’t feature for the team tonight.

Having lost their last game, Joyce will want United to start 2015 off in winning fashion but it will be a tricky away game against Norwich.

Kick-off is 7pm. Live on MUTV.
