Manchester United 4-0 Norwich City: Kagawa hat-trick secures Red Devils victory
Anderson featured in Manchester United’s 4-0 demolition of Norwich City with Shinji Kagawa netting a superb hat-trick to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League.
Rafael was rested for the game with Manchester United’s Champions League clash against Real Madrid coming up in the midweek but Anderson was given a rare start in midfield.
The Red Devils got off to a slow start and it was only just before half-time when Shinji Kagawa opened the scoring, prodding home Robin van Persie’s knockdown.
Kagawa doubled his tally after the break with another coolly taken finish from Wayne Rooney’s cut-back to send United two goals clear.
The Japanese midfielder then completed his hat-trick with a neat side-footed finish from Rooney’s pass.
The creator then turned goalscorer as Rooney finished the rout with a superb strike from 25 yards out.
