United drew with league leadersLiverpoolat Old Trafford last Sunday, and were victorious in their Europa League clash with Partizan Belgrade on Thursday night.
But they arrive at Carrow Road having fallen to 15 th in the league, with just 10 points from nine games – and only two victories.
Hence why the United boss was making no bones about their predicament when asked this week.
“We need results as soon as possible. We need a result against Norwich. “
Anthony Martialhas made a welcome return to action in the last week and the Frenchman started and scored in Serbia.
Solskjaer is buoyed by the return of his No.9 and could decide to keep him in the starting lineup in tandem withMarcus Rashford– the man who came on for Martial after 60 minutes on Thursday night.
Another decision the Norwegian faces having to make is whether to go with Brandon Williams – who started and won the all-important penalty against Partizan – or club captain Ashley Young down the left side.
Speaking in Belgrade, Solskjaer told Mirror Sport he would have no qualms about throwing either Williams or James Garner in against he Canaries.
“If they can perform like they did in front of such an intimidating crowd then they won’t have any problems going anywhere in England.
“ I really believe that we have gained two Premier League players in Belgrade – and I won’t have any doubts about playing them at Norwich. “
