Ferguson offers no excuses for Man Utd shock defeat

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson offered no excuses after defeat at Norwich City.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson offered no excuses after defeat at Norwich City.

The Canaries - reborn since the international break - produced another composed display to secure a third win in five Premier League games with a fine header from Anthony Pilkington, once on the youth books at United, on the hour.

"Norwich deserved their win because they worked so hard for it, although we had a lot of possession and one or two half chances. We didn't create enough great chances. It just wasn't our night," Ferguson said on ESPN.

"Their goal was a marvellous cross and a great touch for the header. There was nothing our keeper could do about that.

"So you have to give credit to Norwich because they battled well, and their goalkeeper had a good night as well, so it is disappointing."
