Ralf Rangnick was not happy with what Manchester United did in the second half vs Norwich

Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick has said he was ‘not happy’ at all with the way his side gave away too many corners in the second half against Norwich.

Man United needed a penalty goal from Cristiano Ronaldo to secure all three points off Norwich City at the Carrow Road after failing to convert their chances from open play.

David de Gea was forced to make five saves in order to ensure the Red Devils get their third Premier League win in a row.

In the second half, Norwich City were clearly the better side going forward and United’s players, who failed to pose as threats after the interval, conceded many corners, something that didn’t go down well with the German boss.

“From the start we controlled the game but didn’t always have the best possible solutions,” Rangnick told BBC. “Defensively we did well, tactically in the first half we didn’t allow them to have too many shots or chances.

“The second half I was not at all happy with the amount of corners that we gave away, but we got the three points.

“We have conceded the highest amount of goals in the top ten. Now we have two clean sheets which is good but we still need to improve on that away, especially against physical teams or teams that attack high like Norwich did.

“It’s also a question of body language and physicality and this was one of the major issues that we could have done better.”

Manchester United are unbeaten in their last six games in all competitions [4W2D] including this evening’s 1-0 win at Norwich.

Man United will look to make it seven games unbeaten when they report to action on Tuesday against Brentford, in the Premier League, away from home.

And Ralf Rangnick is already anticipating another tough game on the road for the Red Devils.

“In three days we have the next away game at Brentford and it won’t be any easier,” said Rangnick.
