Tuesday 09 June 2020 17:58

For day three of our countdown to kick-off on 19 June, we're revisiting Manchester United's third Premier League win of the season, on the road in East Anglia...


Manchester United emerged with a well-earned 3-1 victory from the long Premier League trip to Norwich City. Scott McTominay, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial grabbed the Reds’ goals, but it could have been an even clearer margin of victory, had Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men converted two VAR-awarded penalties in the first half. Remarkably, Canaries goalkeeper saved both spot-kicks, taken by Rashford and then Martial.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: “It was great to watch our players at times, it looked like they were more free to express themselves and the confidence grew more as the game went on. When they drop their shoulders and just play the way we know they can play, like they did today, they're a joy to watch. I think our attacking play is going to improve and improve - it's fantastic to have Anthony back. He's been missed for eight weeks and Dan [James] and Marcus have done really well over the last two months, while he's been away. Loads of attacking play has been through them. They stretch teams so much, it creates space for people like Andreas [Pereira]. I thought he was excellent today.”

Marcus Rashford: “I think the one thing we can improve on is making more clear-cut opportunities for each other. For me, that’s the next step. We’re creating and making each other half-chances, but, as forwards, the easier the goals you can get, the better. We want to be able to just square it past the goalkeeper and tap it in. We’ve been working hard and I think, if we keep that up, it’ll become easier for us.”

Scott McTominay secured United's Man-of-the Match award after the Reds’ 3-1 win at Norwich. The 21-year-old received 50 per cent of your votes after netting our 21st-minute opener – which was our 2,000th goal in Premier League history. The Scotland international said he was delighted with the team's performance, as well as securing his place in the record books. "For sure, that’s a record I knew about before the game - [that we were on] 1,999 [goals] and I’m delighted to get the 2,000th."
