Manchester United Receive Fitness Boost Ahead Of Norwich Tie

Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has received a major fitness boost ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League clash with Norwich City at Old Trafford, as Wayne Rooney, Chris Smalling and Ander Herrera have all trained for the full week.

United had several injury problems in recent weeks, which saw them dumped out of the Champions League and lose ground in the Premier League title race. However, things are looking up for the Red Devils, with the news that the trio are back fully fit.

However, with Wayne Rooney’s recent lack of goals, it is no guarantee that the English international will start. Fans have been growing increasingly impatient with both Van Gaal and Rooney in the past few months, and the Iron Tulip knows that they must find the net tomorrow if he is the pressure on his job is to ease.

The return of Herrera and Smalling will certainly be a boost, but that may not be enough to lift a United team that is truly under pressure, with the visit of a Norwich side that has nothing to lose.

The Canaries are in a relegation battle, in 18th position with 14 points. However, having seen United struggle against similar opposition so far this season, they will know that they are capable of taking a scalp at the ‘Theatre of Dreams’ tomorrow.
