Comments:

League position: 19th Norwich City had now won only one of their last eight Premier League games at Carrow Road (lost five). Now needing to win their last two games to have any chance of avoiding relegation, the Canaries had now won two of their last 16 Premier League games. Gary O’Neill was booked in the second minute of added time in the second half.

Comments:

League position: 5th This was manager Louis Van Gaal's 100th game in charge of Manchester United. United had now kept more clean sheets (18) than any other team in the Premier League so far in this season. Anthony Martial was originally named in the starting line-up before suffering an injury in the pre-match warm-up. Ander Herrera was promoted to the starting XI so Manchester United named only six of a possible seven substitutes.
