Ronaldo fit to face Norwich

Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick has confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo will be available to face Norwich City this afternoon.



The Portuguese suffered a gruesome cut on his shin against Everton last weekend, but this won't hamper his involvement today.

Speaking in Friday's press conference, Rangnick revealed that there are no worries over the forward's fitness ahead of the encounter.

He told Manutd.com: "Yes, he's [Ronaldo] fit to play."

Ronaldo has bagged 18 goals in his comeback season with the Red Devils, but just four of those have come after the turn of the year.

He bagged a hat-trick against Tottenham Hotspur before the international break, but has failed to find the scoresheet thereafter.

The 37-year-old has the perfect opportunity to end the streak against the Canaries, but Dean Smith's side won't be an easy opposition.

Despite being bottom of the standings, they have shown better defensive resolve lately, and will look to make things tough for the Red Devils.
