Manchester United v Norwich City

Manchester United will be targeting a fifth straight win over Norwich in the Premier League on Saturday, April 16 to keep their fast fading top-four hopes alive.
 
The Red Devils suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat to struggling Everton at Goodison Park last weekend to fall six points behind fourth-place Tottenham.
 
Ralf Rangnick's side have picked up just five points out of a possible 15 to put a massive dent in their bid to qualify for the Champions League.

Rangnick concedes United have to rely on the teams above them to drop points after seeing them struggle to create scoring chances once more.
 
"We are dependent on the other results but as long as we aren't winning our own games, we will never have good results from the other teams," the German said after the Toffees clash.
 
"The only thing we can do is stick together. That's all we can do and prepare for the Norwich game.
 
"The last few games we've struggled to score goals and to create chances. I think we were better at that four or five weeks ago - even against Watford at home - but today we just didn't create enough opportunities ourselves."
 
The Canaries arrested an alarming eight-match winless streak when they beat Burnley 2-0 at Carrow Road over the weekend to close within three points of the 18th-placed Clarets.
 
However, the Norfolk outfit remain footed to the foot of the table on 21 points, seven adrift of safety with just seven fixtures remaining in the season.

Dean Smith admits they still have a mountain to climb in the fight for top-flight survival, but the win gives them hope of pulling off an upset against United.
 
"We're still fighting and I think today was important for not just ourselves, but our supporters as well. It's still a mountain but we've got a few rungs up it now," Smith said. 
 
"We'll keep our feet on the floor - it's only one game and one win and we'll look forward to next week's game."
