Match Commentary

90' A straightforward United win looked on the cards right from the outset with the home team enjoying the possession and playing in Norwich's half for large spells. But by failing to wrap the game up when they had many chances United left the door open for Norwich and they nearly clawed their way back. Every reason for optimism for Norwich if they can ride out trouble like that and still play some football against one of the big boys. As for United, question marks still hang over a suspect defence
90' It's all over and, despite a spirited last quarter of the game from the Premiership new boys, it is United who take the points 2-1
90' Scholes comes close to seling the points after wriggling into a shooting position on the right hand side of the Norwich box. Only some desperate lunges divert to shot behind for a corner
