Victor Lindelof taken off in Man Utd's win with Norwich after pointing to his chest in worrying scenes

VICTOR LINDELOF was taken off in Manchester United's match with Norwich after pointing to his chest in worrying scenes.

The defender dropped down in discomfort and had his hand on his chest when United medics rushed onto the pitch.

After a few minutes, Lindelof, 27, was taken off the pitch and replaced by Eric Bailly, 27.

Up until that point, the Swedish international had helped United in keeping a clean sheet at the back with captain Harry Maguire, 28.

Soon after coming off, Cristiano Ronaldo, 36, converted from the spot, which was the only goal separating the sides.

It leaves caretaker boss Ralf Rangnick unbeaten in his three matches in charge since replacing sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

And it is three Premier League wins on the spin for United, who climbed to fifth, level on points with fourth-placed West Ham, who have a game in hand.

United were again without midfielder Paul Pogba, 28, who was out with a hamstring injury.

The Frenchman, whose contract expires at the end of the season, is still yet to sign an extension.

And boss Rangnick admitted he will not pursued the likes of Pogba to stay at the club if they do not want to.

He said: "I wouldn't say he's not worth keeping but, of course, players have to want to play and stay for a club and a big club like Manchester United.

"If a player does not want to play for a club like United, medium or longterm, I don't think it makes sense to convince him to change his mind.

"This is such a massive club with such fantastic support from the supporters, I don't think anyone in the club should try to convince a player to stay."
