Marcus Rashford and Alex Telles are among a raft of players brought back into the Manchester United starting eleven for the game against Norwich City.
Ralf Rangnick has made wholesale changes to the side that started in the 1-1 draw with BSC Young Boys in the UEFA Champions League as Manchester United get set to lock horns with Norwich City at Carrow Road. The first shuffle comes in goal, where David de Gea replaces Dean Henderson.
In front of him, the defensive unit also has an entirely new look, with Diogo Dalot, Victor Lindelof, Alex Telles and captain Harry Maguire back in the starting eleven. Eric Bailly, Nemanja Matic, Luke Shaw and Aaron Wan-Bissaka have dropped out of the side as a result.

Fred and Scott McTominay pair up in the double-pivot in midfield, with Donny van de Beek making way. Bruno Fernandes will be the third midfielder in the side, reprising the no. 10 role. The two other midfielders who miss out are Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard.
Finally, in attack, Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho have been reinstated in the starting eleven. Ronaldo will lead the line for Manchester United against Norwich, with Sancho and Rashford being the two wide men. Mason Greenwood is the unlucky player to miss out despite scoring a goal in the midweek fixture.
