[Video Highlights] Norwich 0-1 Man Utd: Mata Bags Winner As Utd Close-In On City

By on May 7, 2016

Manchester United gave their Champions League qualification hopes a major boost with a 1-0 victory over Norwich City at Carrow Road this afternoon. 

The first half was a largely forgettable affair with both sides content to sit back and there were very few clear cut chances created as a result, so the teams went in at the break level at 0-0.

Things improved slightly in the second half and United finally broke the deadlock in the 72nd minute when Wayne Rooney showed great vision to pick out Juan Mata and the Spaniard cooly slotted home for 0-1.

Norwich pushed to find the equaliser but United held on to secure a vital win that sees them close the gap on fourth-placed Manchester City to just one point ahead of their clash with Arsenal on Sunday.

Norwich meanwhile remain second from bottom in the Premier League table and will now have to hope that Sunderland and Newcastle also drops points in their fixtures this afternoon.
