Footymad preview History of the Norwich City v Manchester United fixture

Norwich City prepare to entertain Manchester United at Carrow Road at tea-time on Saturday, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 14 of the 32 previous games, with the Canaries winning just 11.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Carrow Road was less than a year ago, in February 2012, with Manchester United inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the Canaries in a Premier League match.
