Norwich City fans react to United loanee Brandon Williams' performance

While Manchester United’s choice of full-backs differ from week to week, one player has been at risk of becoming a real forgotten man.

Brandon Williams has been toiling away at Premier League strugglers Norwich, and while their league position does not help him stand out, their problems are not in any way down to him.

Williams has been battling each week to try and help Norwich stay competitive, and has made 15 Premier League appearances so far, more than the four he got last season at Manchester United.

Best performance to date

Williams served up his best performance to date in a Norwich City shirt at the weekend as the Canaries beat Everton 2-1.


It was just the third win Williams has experienced in the Premier League as a Norwich player and he had a key part in the victory.

Williams provided an assist for one of Norwich’s goals after a surging run to top off an impressive counter-attacking move for Adam Idah to score what proved to be the winning strike.

The 21-year-old had to show his defensive ability more as the game went on and Everton pushed to try and equalise.

Williams won two aerial duels, won three tackles, made one interception and three clearances. This was all before he was substituted off in the 76th minute.

Norwich are up to 18th in the table, and while the two teams below them have games in hand, more displays like the one they put in against Everton will give them a real chance of survival.

Whatever the future might or might not hold for Williams at Old Trafford, he is picking up good top flight experience and showing he can cut it, and should not be written off too quickly.

Norwich fans are impressed
