Goals from Cameron Jerome and Alex Tettey either side of half-time gave Alex Neil's team a 2-0 lead and Anthony Martial's reply for United couldn't stop Norwich climbing out of the relegation zone thanks to their first victory at United since 1989.
United were booed off at full-time by their disgruntled supporters and a run of six matches without a win in all competitions, a sequence that includes elimination from the Champions League and falling out of the Premier League's top four, will lead to fresh questions about Van Gaal's suitability for the job.
The Dutchman was taunted by Norwich supporters with chants of “Jose Mourinho: He's taking your job”, a reference to the former Chelsea manager, who was sacked on Thursday.
Van Gaal has faced growing criticism from fans and former United players over the cautious style of his team's play.
Leicester stay on top
Meanwhile, Two penalties from Riyad Mahrez and a fine finish from Shinji Okazaki helped Premier League leaders Leicester to a 3-2 win over Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday.
