ruled out on the eve of the match with a side strain.

“I’m pretty pleased, proud I have to say,”




“We had such a difficult week with so many Covid cases, nine in our group, and others missed the games because of flu.

“When you show symptoms, it’s just flu but you are panicking a little bit. We had to confront so many positive cases and all the testing.

“Everyone was more focused on not panicking in waiting for the test results than being able to concentrate on football.”

Norwich have won eight of their last ten matches in all competitions.

“To deliver that performance was outstanding,”

Farke said


“We could have made our life easier in the second half. They got a goal out of nothing, but we got over the line.

“We have quality players, but we also have such spirit and togetherness.

“We are happy with 50 points at this stage. We are more or less labeled as the favorites in every other game, to deliver this consistency is outstanding but we have to keep going.”
