Norwich City supporters have expressed their pride at the Canaries performance against Manchester United during the 2-1 FA Cup quarter-final defeat at Carrow Road.
Todd Cantwell’s 75th minute equaliser cancelled out Odion Ighalo’s opener - but Harry Maguire’s late winner saw United progress to the semi-finals of the competition.
The England defender, who moments earlier had a header brilliantly saved by Tim Krul, reacted sharply to turn in the loose ball at the far post.
Timm Klose saw red late on for a professional foul on Ighalo - the Swiss will serve a one-match suspension and will miss City’s trip to Arsenal in midweek.
City were resolute out of possession and had opportunities to win the game through Emi Buendia and Onel Hernandez.
United brought on World Cup winners Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial as well as Marcus Rashford as they flexed the quality of their squad. In the end, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had enough to see off the Canaries.
