Manchester United star wins man of the match after Norwich win

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea wins the man of the match award after his superb display against Norwich City.

Man United secured a tight 1-0 win over Norwich on Saturday evening in order to keep their Premier League top-four push alive.

Both teams failed to break the deadlock in the first half, though United had four shots on targets, failing to convert any to goals.

In the second half, David de Gea was tested several times but the Spaniard passed them all.

Midway through the second half, the Manchester United goalie was forced to make a full-stretch save to keep United in the game after punching Pukki’s close-range strike.

The 31-year-old was called into action again after Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal from the penalty spot but this time he punched away a Norwich City star’s header.
