Manchester United entertained Norwich City at Old Trafford earlier today as they hoped to secure all three points at home. The Red Devils made a quick start to the game and took the lead in the seventh minute via Cristiano Ronaldo’s easy tap-in. The Portuguese striker doubled Man United’s advantage in the 32nd minute with a good header but Kieran Dowell pulled a goal back for Norwich just before the half-time break.

Teemu Pukki equalised for the Canaries in the 52nd minute but Ronaldo ended up completing his hattrick in the 76th minute as the Red Devils ended up winning the game by a narrow 3-2 scoreline.

Let’s take a look at how each Man United player performed during the match against the Canaries.

GK: David De Gea – 6/10

The Spaniard made a couple of saves but will be disappointed after conceding a couple of goals during the 90 minutes.

RB: Diogo Dalot – 7/10

Dalot worked hard defensively and was quite lively in the opposition half.

CB: Harry Maguire – 6.5/10

He made some important defensive contributions at the back and made one key chance in the opposition half.

CB: Victor Lindelof – 7/10

Lindelof earned the ball back a few times and made two crucial clearances inside his half.

Pogba anchored the midfield well and made plenty of promising runs with the ball from midfield.

CM: Jesse Lingard – 7/10

He engineered a few decent chances in the opponent’s half but failed to register a goal.

RW: Anthony Elanga – 8/10

Elanga was a constant menace in the final third and ended the game with an assist to his name.

ST: Cristiano Ronaldo – 9.5/10

The Portugal international was a deadly presence up top and scored another fine hattrick to win the game for the Red Devils.

Sancho caused a lot of problems for the opposition using his excellent creativity and dribbling.

Substitutes:

Matic made one good run with the ball.
