Manchester United manager, Ralf Rangnick has identified his side’s major problem following their 1-0 win over Norwich City in a Premier League tie on Saturday night.


Man United defeated Norwich at Carrow Road, thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo’s second-half penalty.


But Rangnick believes the ‘physicality’ of his Man United players was a ‘major issue’ in their victory over Norwich.


According to him, he told his players to step up the ‘intensity’ after a sluggish first half against the host.


“It was a very intense game, very physical. They played well, they didn’t play like a bottom team. We had some problems in the first 15 minutes,’ Rangnick told Match of the Day.


“From the start, we controlled the game but didn’t always have the best possible solutions. Defensively we did well, tactically in the first half, we didn’t allow them to have too many shots or chances.


“At half time, I told the boys we needed to increase the speed and intensity of the game. The second half was a little bit better, but at the end we were lucky to have a clean sheet and there were two or three clean sheets by David De Gea.


“It’s another clean sheet but still a lot of work to do.


“The second half I was not at all happy with the amount of corners that we gave away, but we got the three points.


“We have conceded the highest amount of goals in the top ten. Now we have two clean sheets, which is good, but we still need to improve on that away, especially against physical teams or teams that attack high like Norwich did.


“It’s also a question of body language and physicality and this was one of the major issues that we could have done better.”


Man United will now face Brentford in their next game on Tuesday.
