Norwich head coach Daniel Farke revealed that he will not lose hope of Premier League survival despite the fact that his side has started the season with five successive defeats. The Canaries are last on the table and face Liverpool in the Carabao Cup midweek. The fixture schedule has not been kind as they have faced Liverpool, Manchester City, Leicester City, and Arsenal to start the season. Their loss to fellow promotion side Watford was the most disappointing result of their Premier League campaign this season.
“Let’s be honest, the first game that really mattered was our home game against Watford,” Norwich head coach Daniel Farke said. “Yes, we lost this game and of course this was a setback and we are at the moment if we’re really honest three points behind our plan – that’s not great. We’re not overly happy with it but it also doesn’t mean that we are relegated – so you always want to stay balanced, be self-critical, and to be honest and we analyze this and we definitely have to focus, especially our defense of our own goal because we’ve conceded too many goals so far.”
“It’s also important that at this moment I don’t punish my players too much, and I’m backing them, and then also to be critical and speak about what we have to improve,” he added. “I think it’s important to be always honest but also not to bury them alive and it’s important to stay positive.”
