19th Home Win For United

The 19 times Premier League title winner, Manchester United completed a club record 19th successive home league win in the Premier League grabbing the top spot with 19 points with an unconvincing 2-0 triumph over very rock solid Norwich at Old Trafford.

The visitors played really well to make it hard to The Red Devils for the first 20 minutes of the play. United had toiled for a goal due to some good defence tactics from Norwich.

The first 45 minutes were the time of ordinary match display from United whereas the visitors were on top with ball possession and solid defending. United passes were not spot on as it were used to be. They were rather clumsy in the ground with ball. The first half of the match was not as excited as the home crowd had wanted it to be.

United survived two gilt-edged Norwich chances immediately after the break. Jones has already caught the eye this season but the 19-year-old needed to show maturity way beyond his years after Morison had given Evans the slip. Knowing Pilkington was completely on his own behind him, the teenager held his ground, denying an early cross, before lunging in on Morison and coming away with the ball.

United's good fortunate was seemingly inexhaustible. When Pilkington seized on Antonio Valencia's miscontrol, the striker was left with only Lindegaard to beat. But amazingly rolled his shot wide of the far post, missing the golden opportunity to lead the match.

The match was about to go away from Norwich when Giggs came into the field as a substitute. The legendary Ryan Giggs floated over a corner, which was met by Jones and flicked on by Rooney, to Anderson, who powered home a header from close range. And United took the lead.

Still the faith of the visitors was not down even though they were a goal down at the Old Trafford.

But the luck was not in the favour of Norwich as Pilkington's shot deflected off Anderson, onto the post and back into the grateful arms of Lindegaard, who had been helpless.

Welbeck, then scored his third goal in the week with a slide passed by tactful and selfish Park to seal the victory for the night.

But yet the victory was not well convincing as United had many flaws in the match. Norwich played their heart out but were unlucky to miss good chances to stop the unbeaten triumph of United.

It was the 19th straight home league win for the 19 times League winner.
