Manchester United’s Strongest XI vs Norwich including Herrera and Smalling

by Sam Peoples

After taking our usual look at some potential Manchester United XI’s, here’s my take on the strongest possible XI I feel we could play against Norwich.

It does depend on the return of a couple of players from injury who are both on the verge of being available, so I’m hoping to see Chris Smalling and Ander Herrera back in the team.

Both are crucial for how Man United’s season is going to pan out. In defence, Smalling has been our lynchpin and in midfield Herrera has proved to be irreplaceable when out of the side.

Saturday is an absolutely crucial game for Louis van Gaal. Every passing match without a win is piling the pressure on him and Jose Mourinho’s sacking means precedent has been set this season – if he can be sacked, surely anybody can at any club given his history with them.

Van Gaal can ill afford to let this losing streak continue and if we do have this team out against Norwich, I’d be quietly confident of a win on home soil.
