After a hard earned win against The Canaries, Louis Van Gaal insisted on the need of maintaining the pressure on Manchester City. “It’s so important that we are still in the business and we keep in business by keeping the pressure on our competitors,” said the Dutchman after winning 1-0. Today’s win puts an extra layer of pressure on Manchester City, who will face a tough battle on Sunday vs Arsenal.
Both the teams appeared to be dull in the first half and the second half was no different either. Although the Red Devils managed to sneak a goal past Ruddy through Juan Mata. Mata got the breakthrough with Wayne Rooney providing an assist as he latches on to a ball lofted forward. Van Gaal accepted that the win against Norwich did not come easy, as The Canaries found themselves in a relegation spot with 2 games left to play.
The win gives a huge boost to Manchester United, as they strive to earn a Champions League spot. With this win, United is 1 point behind across-town rivals Manchester City. Also, The Red Devils managed to increase the lead over West Ham United to 4 points who lost to Swansea 4-1 at Upton Park.
