Manchester United Show Some Life in Capital One Cup

Mitchell Gunn – USA Today Sports

Manchester United pulled off one of their typical comebacks last weekend as they turned the game around in the last minutes against Stoke City. Judging by the results, it seems like the momentum from that victory carried over to their Capital One Cup match against Norwich City.

Despite the fact that the Red Devils were facing another Premier League side, David Moyes decided to make several substitutions, and the moves paid off. Phil Jones and Tom Cleverley were the only ones that survived from the team that played on Saturday, and Manchester United looked much more dangerous than in previous matches.

They had a lot more accuracy going forward, and they were able to find the back of the net consistently — two things they were unable to do in recent games.

Javier Hernandez was one of the stars of the match as he scored twice. The Mexican has been rumored to be on his way out of the team because he would like to get more first-team minutes, and he seems to deserve a bigger role after a performance like the one he had today.

Manchester United were able to dominate from start to finish, and players like Adnan Januzaj, Fabio and Hernandez proved to be valuable pieces in a long season that’s starting to get better for the Red Devils. If they’re able to perform like this every time they step on the pitch, they should be able to turn things around sooner rather than later.
