Norwich Vs. Manchester United, 2012 Premier League: Ryan Giggs Rescues A Win

Manchester United were anything but their best at Carrow Road, but ageless legends Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs rescued a victory for the Red Devils, keeping them in the title race with cross-town rivals Manchester City. Norwich City created more shots than their opponents and played extremely well -- perhaps they deserved a point -- but Giggs netted the winner in stoppage time to make it 2-1.

Scholes' opener came just seven minutes in on a well-timed run into the box. Nani hit a cross to the back post and Scholes was there to nod it in, giving United a perfect start. Norwich picked up their games after that and forced a couple of great saves out of David De Gea before they finally conceded. On a corner kick, Zak Whitbread knocked down the ball for Grant Holt, who netted the equalizer for the Canaries.

They looked to have a point they could be proud of until the 92nd minute, when Giggs tapped in cross from Ashley Young to give his team the victory. Norwich will feel hard done by, but they're still comfortably mid-table and can be proud of their performance.
