Manchester United Set A New Record
The 2–0 win over Norwich City at Old Trafford last Saturday saw Manchester United set a new record of 19 successive home victories in the Barclays Premier League. After 69 minutes of play, attacking midfielder Anderson found the back of the net following a flag kick from Ryan Giggs before Danny Welbeck sealed the triumph for Manchester United when he scored his fifth goal of the season with two minutes remaining.
Sir Alex Ferguson: “Our home record has been fantastic for two seasons now. This was not a good performance but we were gritty and we never gave in. That is a fantastic quality to have. I don´t expect Anderson to score with a header. I felt we needed someone to get hold of the ball up front. Danny Welbeck did that and he also got another goal.”
