Canaries halt United

Published 2 Comments

Norwich continued their revival with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Manchester United at Carrow Road, as Sir Alex Ferguson's men blew the chance to go back top of the Barclays Premier League table.

After Manchester City had thrashed Aston Villa 5-0, only a win would have been enough for United to jump over their neighbours once again.

However, with England striker Wayne Rooney missing because of tonsillitis, the Red Devils produced a lacklustre display as the Canaries - reborn since the international break - produced another composed display to secure a third win in five Premier League games with a fine header from Anthony Pilkington on the hour.
