Cristiano Ronaldo fired Manchester United into the lead at Carrow Road with a second half penalty.
After being pulled to the ground by his shoulder by Canaries right-back Max Aarons, Ronaldo smashed home his third goal in as many games to score his first goal under Ralf Rangnick.
Up against penalty-saving specialist Tim Krul, Ronaldo smashed his right-footed effort into the right side of the goal, sending the Dutchman the wrong way.
It was an emphatic strike from the Portuguese star, taking his tally of goals for the season in all competitions to 13, seven of which have now come in the Premier League.
In what was proving to be a drab contest in Norfolk, Ronaldo’s calmness from the spot was exactly what United needed.
Having stepped up when United needed him most once again, the supporters, unsurprisingly, have been waxing lyrical about him on social media. Below are what some United faithful have had to say
This game has been a tough watch, but a blatant penalty there. What a solid conversion from the spot.
