Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson praises the performance of Norwich City, who shocked the Red Devils at Carrow Road this evening.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has praised the performance of Norwich City after the Canaries shocked the Red Devils 1-0 this evening.

Despite having the majority of possession, United struggled to carve out many clear-cut openings and went down to Anthony Pilkington's header on the hour mark.

"You've got to give credit to the way Norwich defended - they defended for their lives tonight," said the Glaswegian boss afterwards.

"The only chances we had were half chances. Their goalkeeper (John Ruddy) had a good night too. We had a lot of pressure but didn't get the goal we needed."

Defeat for United meant that their Manchester rivals City usurp them atop the Premier League.
