Neville warns Man Utd about finding Norwich harder than Liverpool
Gary Neville has warned Manchester United that they could find their game against Norwich on Sunday more difficult than last weekend’s visit of Liverpool due to their failures in recent games of that nature.
United put in their best performance of the past few weeks against Jurgen Klopp’s side to restrict the league leaders to a point at Old Trafford, in a game which lifted the mood somewhat around Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.
However, the Red Devils have struggled against the likes of West Ham and Newcastle – who both claimed wins against Solskjaer‘s side – and speaking on Sky Sports’ Friday Night Football, Neville warned United about another similar test on Sunday.
“I agree with Jamie [Carragher], Norwich and Bournemouth are more likely to be the games that Manchester United will be judged on this season and you couldn’t be more confident going into the game against Norwich than you were against Liverpool,” the pundit said.
“Manchester United have let you down this season with results against West Ham, Southampton, other games of this nature where they’ve just been really poor. Can those players get up for those games?
“Can they break teams down that defend deep and counter-attack on them and it is a different type of test for them. I think it’s an important one for them, more important than Liverpool in some ways.”
United continued their unbeaten start to their Europa League campaign on Thursday night with a 1-0 win over Partizan Belgrade, which ended the club’s worst away run since 1989.
Anthony Martial scored the winner with a penalty and in his press conference on Friday, Solskjaer was delighted to have the Frenchman back from injury.
