Norwich City’s Premier League home game against Manchester United has been moved due to the Red Devils’ Europa League commitments.
The visit of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's star-studded United squad has been put back a day to Sunday October 27 (KO 4:30pm) to accomodate a Europa League group game on the previous Thursday.
United won the last Carrow Road top flight fixture between the two clubs, with Juan Mata on target in May 2016. That same season saw Alex Tettey seal a memorable win at Old Trafford in a 2-1 victory for Alex Neil's side.
The Canaries kick off their Premier League season at Liverpool on August 9 before a home double header brings Newcastle and then Chelsea to Carrow Road inside the opening month.
Norwich host Premier League champions Manchester City on September 14. Both the Chelsea and champions' visits have seen kick off times altered for live television coverage.
