Manchester United 2 Norwich 0 | Analysis

Manchester United 2 Norwich 0 | Analysis

Injuries to Nemanja Vidic, Chris Smalling, Rio Ferdinand and the da Silva twins have robbed Manchester United the option of fielding a settled back four and in the last few games it has started to tell. The first half was probably one of United's poorest performances this season in the sense that there was no urgency in the play, the passing was sloppy and they looked vulnerable at the back. Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez' return in attack was a welcome …

Following their blistering start to the season Manchester United's recent games have begun to highlight their defensive problems.

Lack of cutting edge a worry | QPR

Neil Warnock will reflect on last night's 0-0 draw with Newcastle as two points dropped after his side dominated for large portions of the game but failed to get the win. Even though he gave debuts to five players the team looked fluid and the opposition struggled to deal with their movement. QPR lined-up in a 4-3-3 formation with Adel Taarabt and Shaun Wright-Phillips flanking Jay Boothroyd and within eight minutes, left-back Armand Traore presented the attacking trio with their …
