Cristiano Ronaldo issues defiant Manchester United message following Norwich City win

Match-winner Cristiano Ronaldo has said that Manchester United have taken another step in the "right direction" following their 1-0 triumph over Norwich City at Carrow Road.


The Portugal international scored the only goal of the game, converting a 75th-minute penalty, to seal a third successive Premier League victory, as well as a second in as many league games under new interim manager Ralf Rangnick.


Ronaldo was hauled down inside the penalty area by Canaries right-back Max Aarons and smashed the ball home from 12 yards, sending goalkeeper Tim Krul the wrong way.


United had to dig deep for the victory, with Norwich having no shortage of chances to take at least a point from the contest.


Nevertheless, Ronaldo's 13th goal of the season was enough to seal another three-point haul for United and move them to within three points of the top-four.


For Ronaldo, the victory has allowed United to take another step in the direction that they want to head in, as they look to put a dismal recent period behind them.


Ronaldo, taking to his Instagram page, said: "One more step in the right direction. We know what we want and what we have to do in order to get it.


"It's up to us! Well done, lads! Let's go, Devils!"


United have now won three Premier League games on the spin for only the second time this season, with them not having achieved such a feat since September, when they got the better of Wolverhampton Wanderers, Newcastle United and West Ham United.


Although the victory against Norwich was a vital one for the Reds, the performance was far from perfect, as they looked sluggish and sloppy, especially in the first half.


Nevertheless, the win has seen them gain ground on the top-four and keep in touch with Arsenal, who beat Southampton 3-0 on Saturday afternoon, in the table.
