“Sir” Ryan Giggs saves the day

900th appearance and counting, and the Welsh Wizard proved he’s still  focused on his task and still loves the red shirt, as his vital winner on the 92nd minute against Norwich sealed an important win for the Red Devils as they chase Man City for the title race. Scholes opened the scoring on the 7th minute as he headed in Nani’s cross from the right wing, but from then United took their feet off the pedal and allowed Norwich to dominate. De Gea had to be vigilant as he denied Ruddy by blocking with his right foot, and had to kept Holt’s header out as well. He was busy again in the second half, but despite a first attempt successfully blocked after Scholes’ gave the ball away, followed by another clearance from the resulting corner kick, he could do little to prevent Holt’s brilliantly struck ball from getting past him on the 83rd minute. While it looked to be heading for a draw for the Red Devils, they suddenly seemed to have found new vigor, and eventually, on the 92nd minute, Young’s cross was met sweetly by Giggs to make his 900th appearance for United a special one. 1 – 2 the final score, very close to disaster, but in the end the Red Devils got away with it, and keep the pressure on City, but a tough match awaiting as Tottenham host them next weekend.
