The Manchester United players lead by cheerful Cristiano Ronaldo defeated Norwich 3: 2 and thus took advantage of the rivals' mistakes in the fight for the Champions League. The victory was brought by Cristiano Ronaldo.
The Portuguese first took the lead in the seventh minute, and then after a corner in the 32nd minute, he doubled the advantage of the Red Devils with his head. Towards the end of the first half, Kieron Dowell reduced the gap of the Canaries, and Teemu Pukki shocked Old Trafford in the 52nd minute by using the counter for 2: 2.
However, Ronaldo decided to decide the match today, so in the 76th minute he brought victory to his team with a spectacular goal from a free agent. "Ronaldo has scored three very important goals for us," said David de Gea after the game.
"We know we aren't playing very well but we got three points. "We should control the game more against Norwich at home. A massive win for us. We still have a chance to finish top four and we have to fight for it.
"We will fight for the top four until the last second."
Regarding the fans protests, a United spokesperson said: "We are working hard to create the conditions for renewed success on the pitch, while strengthening our engagement with fans.
"We respect the right of fans to voice their opinions peacefully and we will continue to listen to them, with the aim of working together to get the club back to where we all want it to be: competing for trophies."
"Everybody has seen today's game, we all know what team we're playing on Tuesday," Rangnick added. "They might have the chance to win four trophies. If we play like we did today it will be very difficult to get even a point out of this game.
"Our defensive shape was the biggest issue for me today although I wouldn't say shape because I don't think it had anything to do with shape. I'm not really happy with our performance when we weren't in possession of the ball.
"I know there are no easy games in this league but we have to defend better than we did today no matter what the opposition. Even more so if we think about the upcoming next games."
