Manchester United continues in the Premier League and owes it, in part, to Cristiano Ronaldo. This Saturday, in Norwich, last in the Premier League, it is thanks to a penalty obtained and transformed by the Portuguese international (75th) that the Red Devils chained a second victory in a row in the Premier League (1-0) under the ‘era Ralf Rangnick; after that against the Crystal Palace of Patrick Vieira (1-0).
The Mancuniens have not mastered the meeting so far and the transformation operated by the German coach is not yet obvious. Apart from a strike from Telles which bounced off the crossbar from Krul (14th) and two poorly concluded actions by CR7 (38th and 86th), they did not really shine with their offensive power.
Three exceptional stops by De Gea
Without three fabulous stops from De Gea (57th, 77th, 90th + 2), Manchester United’s evening would have been less tasty. The Red Devils are fifth, tied on points with fourth-placed West Ham.
