Kagawa nets hat-trick in Canaries defeat

Shinji Kagawa scored his first Manchester United hat-trick as the Red Devils warmed up for their Champions League duel with Real Madrid by brushing aside Norwich 4-0 to open up a 15-point lead at the top of the Premier League.
Although Sir Alex Ferguson had promised his team would be fully focused on the "mundane" domestic fare immediately prior to the most glamorous of European nights, for most of this contest they were well below par.
Eventually though, United cut loose, netting three times in the final 14 minutes, with Kagawa grabbing two to complete a memorable three-timer before Wayne Rooney belted in a sensational effort as United's grip on the title tightened.
