Key win for the Champions

Juan Mata contributed in the second half to Manchester United’s win against Norwich City. The final 3-2 leaves the fourth position only three points away. Cristiano Ronaldo scored the three goals for the local team.

Manchester United, with the participation of Juan Mata, achieved a fundamental win in their fight to enter the next edition of the UEFA Champions League. The Red Devils beat Norwich City at Old Trafford (3-2), in a game that was even until the end. Three goals from Cristiano Ronaldo offset the goals of the visitors, works by Dowell and Pukki.

The match, corresponding to Gameweek 33 of the Premier League, was decided just after Juan entered the pitch. The Spanish international joined the game in the 74th minute and two minutes later, Cristiano scored the final goal with a free kick. Mata was very active: he constantly offered himself to his teammates, gave fluidity to United’s attack and also contributed when it came to winning the ball.

These three points leave Manchester United just three points from fourth place. The next appointment will be very special. On Tuesday, Rangnick’s players will face Liverpool at Anfield, in a match postponed from Gameweek 30.
