sbo222 Manchester United's 1-0 home defeat to West Bromwich Albion was a collective failure, one where Jose Mourinho and almost every one of his players were substandard. As a result, it seems unfair to single anyone out. What is important, though, is to identify a key area where the team have both advanced and regressed, and this is in relation to United's full-backs.

Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia are two of the squad's most reliable performers, defensively diligent from week to week, but there is a sense that their best instincts have long been suppressed.

This isn't something that can be laid solely -- or even primarily -- at the door of Mourinho, since the issue arose some time before his arrival at Old Trafford. The fact is that two players who were among the very best crossers in the Premier League no longer deliver a consistently excellent final ball.

There are probably a couple of good reasons for that. One is that Young, in particular, has lost some of the speed that allowed him to get clear of his man before delivering the ball into the box. Moreover, he is a right-footer playing on the left wing, and so he always has to check back before he releases the ball.

In some games, the unfortunate and cumulative effect is that United concede a good 10 to 15 yards on the left flank in several attacks, since their opponents know that they will not attack the byline with any great aggression. sbo222

The addition of Alexis Sanchez has addressed this issue to some extent, but Sanchez is a right-footer, too, so he also hesitates when cutting inside. This might sound like a small matter, but it is the kind of thing which leads to a greater predictability in United's attack.

Young's loss of attacking flair is partly explained by his growing emphasis on his defensive duties, a fate which appears to have befallen Antonio Valencia.

Valencia's transformation is even more remarkable than Young's -- while Young is widely regarded as a hardworking yet ultimately limited full-back, Valencia has the tools to be the complete right-back. His defending has improved immeasurably and he has the speed and strength to unsettle anyone against him on the flank. He also regularly completes around 90 percent of his passes.

Yet there is a sense that Valencia, though a fine servant -- in so far as such as a concept still exists -- is holding himself back, and has done for some time. During the early part of the decade, he was a regular supplier of superb crosses to the head of Wayne Rooney, providing the striker with so many assists that Rooney scored more goals in a season than he ever had before. sbo222

Norwich 2-0 Preston: Canaries earn first Sky Bet Championship win of the season

 
sbo333 Norwich finally got their Sky Bet Championship season up and running as two late goals earned them a flattering 2-0 victory over Preston at Carrow Road. Finnish striker Teemu Pukki fired home his third goal for his new club to break the deadlock with just 10 minutes remaining - and the points were quickly wrapped up with a 25-yard stunner from Alex Tettey seven minutes later.

The result was tough on the visitors, who had more than their fair share of the play, but it was the Canaries sbo333 who came out on top to secure their first league win after taking just one point from their opening three fixtures.Neither side managed an effort on or off target in a cagey opening quarter, but the game gradually livened up and Preston wasted a glorious chance to get their noses in front in the 26th minute.

Tim Krul could only parry Lukas Nmecha's angled drive into the path of Darnell Fisher some 10 yards out, but the defender lacked the composure to convert, sbo333 with his first-time effort sailing way over the bar. Lewis Moult then tried his luck with a spectacular overhead kick which went straight at the Norwich keeper before the home fans finally had something to get excited about when Ben Marshall curled a free-kick just over after he had been fouled on the edge of the box by Ben Pearson.
