  1. 16.55

    Thanks for tuning in this afternoon! Stay with Sky Sports for the full match report and all the reaction.

  2. It's all over! United beat Norwich 4-0 thanks to Kagawa's hat-trick and a sweet strike from Rooney late on.

  3. 90+4

    Turner does well on the stretch to prevent Welbeck getting to a ball in the box and that looks like it could be it...

  4. 90+4

    Cleverley gets forward as we near the full-time whistle but the hosts are kept at bay as Norwich carry on in damage-control mode.

  5. 90+3

    Valencia tries to pick someone out with a through-ball into the box but it somehow evades both Rooney and Kagawa and rolls back to Bunn.

  6. 90+2

    United are sitting comfortably on the ball as the minutes trickle down. It's unfortunate for Norwich, who did well in the first half but have been truly worn down since that opening goal.

  7. 90+1

    It's a sweet strike from Rooney, who's been great in a creative role today and has got his moment in the spotlight late on.

  8. What a goal from the striker, who drops his shoulder to lose Johnson before applying a lovely dipping finish from range to defy Bunn. Fantastic finish.

  9. 90


  10. 90

    It looks up all wrapped up for United now and Kagawa will feel he's definitely staked his claim for a spot against Real on Tuesday night.

  11. It's the Japanese player that starts the move as he picks out Welbeck in midfield and the striker finds Rooney, who passes back to Kagawa in the box. He takes a couple of good touches before dinking it into the back of the net over Bunn. Quality stuff again from the United man.

  12. 88


  13. 87

    De Gea, who hasn't had much to do today, does well to keep a long ball inside and he feeds it back to his defenders.

  14. 86

    The spark seems to have gone out of this Norwich side after the second goal and it looks like United just need to steer this home.

  15. 85

    Evans deals with a throw in from Garrido and rolls a leisurely ball back to De Gea, with United in no hurry now.

  16. 84

    Valencia gets the better of Garrido down the right and drives the ball into the box, with Rooney and Kagawa lurking, but the former gets in the way and can't create something.

  17. 83

    After that lull in play the action resumes, with Welbeck gingerly getting to his feet. It looks like United are home and dry but injuries are still a worry for Ferguson ahead of the clash with Real.

  18. 82

    Welbeck is on the ground receiving treatment and the yellow card does indeed come out for Turner.

  19. 81

    Welbeck is left floored after an over-eager challenge from Turner in midfield. It's a clumsy one and he might be looking at a yellow.

  20. 80

    We're into the final 10 minutes and United are closing on extending their lead at the top to 15 points. Norwich will have to quickly regroup if they're going to strike back.
