thumbnail Hello,

The Danish goalkeeper is not fazed by the Red Devils' below-par performance against the Canaries while Michael Owen believes Paul Lambert's side have a good chance of staying up

Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard insists that the three points and clean sheet are the most important thing following the Red Devils' uninspiring 2-0 win over Norwich City.

The visitors had a number of chances to take the lead at Old Trafford before Anderson put Sir Alex Ferguson's side in front towards the end of the second half with substitute Danny Welbeck adding a second before full-time.

The result ensures United remain at the top of the Premier League table and although Lindegaard - who made his first start in the Premier League - sees room for improvement, he maintains that a victory, as well as a clean sheet, are more significant than the overall performance.

He tweeted: "pretty or not... 3 points and a clean sheet is the facts! Still room for improvements though #Believe."

Lindegaard's United team-mate Michael Owen, meanwhile, stated his opinion that Paul Lambert's side have a realistic chance of avoiding relegation to the Championship come the end of the season and was quick to praise the Canaries' performance against the champions.

A Tweet from unused substitute Owen read: "Norwich played well today. Denied us space in the dangerous areas. They stand a good chance of staying up on that evidence."
