Video: Harry Maguire makes vital block to prevent certain Norwich City goal

Manchester United could have very easily found themselves 1-0 behind at half-time in the FA Cup quarter-final against Norwich City at Carrow Road.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made eight changes to the side that beat Sheffield United on Wednesday, and United have struggled to gel in a 45 minutes that has lacked quality.

The Reds have rarely threatened going forward, with Bruno Fernandes unsurprisingly looking like the most likely to make the break through. However, the Portuguese playmaker has been guilty of trying too hard to force the issue in possession.

Norwich have caused their fair share of problems for United’s defence and could have gone ahead at the stroke of half-time.

Following some tidy work from Todd Cantwell, captain Harry Maguire made a crucial block with Lukas Rupp’s volley destined for Sergio Romero’s goal.
