Daniel Farke previewed Norwich City’s Premier League game at Manchester United - and we had all the key lines first from Colney.
Teemu Pukki's fitness was the main injury bulletin delivered by Farke ahead of the bid to pick up a rare win at the Theatre of Dreams for Norwich.
Pukki missed out on FA Cup duty last weekend with hamstring and toe problems, and Farke had hinted prior to that Preston win this weekend could come too soon for the top scorer.
Adam Idah grabbed his chance with a hat-trick and is set for more Premier League involvement this weekend. Dennis Srbeny was sold to SC Paderborn in midweek.
Josip Drmic is back in team training after missing the festive swing with a hamstring injury but is not ready for Old Trafford. Ralph Fahrmann (hamstring) is back in contention after a recent lay-off.
