Norwich City and Manchester United haven’t had such an amazing period in between September and October in the Premier League. The Manchester-based side enjoyed a better form in their last five matches with one win against Leicester City and two draws against Arsenal and Liverpool. A more conservative approach in scoring goals (they only registered ten goals before this match) was one of the reasons that contributed to Man United’s inconsistent form up to now.
Meanwhile, Norwich were also going through an average spell as they managed to win a very hard-fought match against Manchester City while recently drawing against Bournemouth. Similar to their opponent, converting their chances into goals was a major problem as the home side had just a single goal after their match against the blue side of Manchester. With that in mind, there was no doubt that both teams would want to secure a positive result to improve their form.
At the end of the day, only one team were able to do so. Scott McTominay and Marcus Rashford’s goals inside the first-half quickly sealed the game for the visitors, with Anthony Martial put the icing on the cake. This tactical analysis will provide an analysis on Man United’s 3-1 win over Norwich City. Meanwhile, using statistics, we will point out what went wrong for Daniel Farke’s tactics against Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s tactics.
