Norwich City’s disappointing start to the season
Norwich City’s disappointing start to the season has seen them drop to within three points of the relegation zone.
The team has recently suffered huge thrashings at the hands of fellow relegation threatened the teams like Newcastle United. These results are starting to put a lot of pressure on manager Alex Neil, who is being backed by several bookmakers as the next favourite to get the sack. Ahead of the game against Leicester City, the manager has asked his players not to drop their heads. Neil claims that the Premier League is an extremely tough league and the teams need at least six or seven players playing at their best in order to stay up.
Since this is not happening for Norwich at the moment, working extremely hard will be one of the key priorities for the team. The 3-0 win over West Brom in the League Cup remains the sole victory that the club have achieved in the last few weeks. As a result, confidence is extremely low within the team. Norwich are up against West Brom in the upcoming league game and they should provide some opportunity to take three points. Getting some victories on board is important since the team has difficult upcoming matches against Manchester City and Chelsea.
“At this level you need seven or eight of your players playing well. I don’t think we had that. That is what cost us. At West Ham, in the last away game, we had players playing at the top of their level. If you have too many of your players not playing as well as they can that is obviously going to cause you a real issue.It is such fine margins at this level. There have been a couple of games when I feel we have deserved to win,” said Neil.
