Van Wolfswinkel was named in Chris Hughton's starting XI and he went close early on, whistling a shot narrowly wide from outside the box.

But Jonny Howson went one better after half an hour, getting in front of his defender and flicking in Nathan Redmond's cross from eight yards out.

Brighton should have equalised before half-time but Andrea Orlandi somehow missed the ball with the goal at his mercy and then fell over as he attempted to get a second bite.

Hooper came on for Norwich in the second half, but it was fellow summer signing van Wolfswinkel who had another chance, only to be denied by a good low save from Tomasz Kuszczak.

Brighton equalised with a stunning goal from Solly March, who unleashed a left-foot screamer from 25 yards out into the top corner of the net.

Norwich had a late chance to win it but Luciano Becchio headed back across the goal and wide of the target in front of an impressive crowd of 10,622.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

One Point And One Conclusion For United

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
