EPL: Ronaldo penalty gives Man Utd laboured win at Norwich

 

Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty earned Manchester United a narrow victory over Norwich to maintain Ralf Rangnick’s unbeaten start as interim manager.

Ronaldo sent Tim Krul the wrong way on 75 minutes after the Portuguese had been hauled down by Max Aarons on the edge of the six-yard box, reports the BBC.

The Red Devils had offered little attacking threat before then, though Alex Telles hit the bar with a deflected free-kick during the first half.

They also had David de Gea to thank for two fine stops to deny Teemu Pukki and Ozan Kabak as Norwich put in a spirited display.

The win moves Manchester United above Arsenal and Tottenham into fifth place. Norwich stay bottom on goal difference, three points from safety.

RESULT

• Norwich 0 – 1 Man Utd
