Manchester United Football Club made it back-to-back away wins for the first time this term, courtesy of a 2-1 victory against Norwich City.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will no doubt be breathing a sigh of relief after moving into the top half of the Premier League table.

There were some top-quality individual performances from Reds on the day, namely from Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford. However, neither were included in the BBC’s Team of the Week. Instead, Garth Crooks selected two different United players…

First up we have Harry Maguire. The Englishman controlled the back four brilliantly throughout the match, with Slabhead not really giving a sniff to the Norwich City front line.

Secondly, Scott McTominay continued his red-hot form. The Scotland international opened the scoring with a cool finish to set United on their way. He controlled the midfield throughout, almost single-handedly at times.

It’s nice to see the pair rewarded for their hard work over recent weeks, though as pointed out earlier, an argument for more United players to be included can definitely be made.

That said, United go into the game against Chelsea high on confidence, which could bode well for Solskjaer as the Old Trafford club look to book their place into the next round of the Carabao Cup.
