Ralf Rangnick believe that his ‘physical’ Manchester United the players were the ‘main issue’ in their 1-0 win over Norwich City on Saturday.

United have now registered three consecutive Premier League wins but struggled at Carrow Road and required another stellar performance from David De Gea to keep a clean sheet.

And Rangnick admitted that he asked his players to ramp up ‘intensity’ after a sluggish first half.

‘It was a very intense, very physical match. They played well, they didn’t play as a bottom team. We had some problems 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 too many shots or chances.

‘In the first half, I told the boys we needed to increase the speed and intensity of the game. The second half was a bit better but in the end we were lucky to keep a clean sheet and there were two or three David De Gea clean sheets.

‘Another clean sheet but still a lot of work to do.

‘Second half I wasn’t happy at all with the number of corners we got, but we got the three points.

‘We’ve conceded the most goals in the top 10. Now that we have two clean sheets it’s a good thing but we still need to improve on that away from home, especially against teams with the fitness or high attacking teams like Norwich did.

‘It’s also a question of body language and physicality and this is one of the key issues where we can do better.’
