Man Utd second was a killer says Adams

Norwich City manager Neil Adams believes the second goal for Manchester United was the turning point in their 4-0 defeat at Old Trafford yesterday afternoon, Norwich City’s official site has reported.



The Canaries were convincingly beaten by United whose goals came from Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata, both scoring two each.


The result now means Norwich are firmly in a relegation battle and boss Adams believes the second goal effectively killed the game off.


He said: “When we were still in the game, the disappointing thing was in the second half early on when we didn’t get close enough to Rooney, and he’s capable of doing that.


“You’ve got a mountain to climb then, that’s the killer blow without a shadow of a doubt. When this place is rocking, it’s always going to be a massive ask.”


With the game being Ryan Giggs first in charge of the club since the recent sacking of Moyes, it was United who took the lead through a first half penalty from Rooney, and one which Adams believed was harsh on his side.


“We had to quell their threat initially and I thought we did that really well, but we gave away a really soft penalty. I’m not so sure it’s a penalty, there’s minimal contact there.”


A second from Rooney soon after half time and two further goals from substitute Juan Mata, means Norwich now only have two games left to save their season with a trip to Chelsea and a home game on the final day of the season against Arsenal.
