Norwich boss Daniel Farke eases expections

Norwich City boss Daniel Farke says fans must not expect too much from his players.

After producing a memorable 3-2 win over Manchester City, the Canaries slumped to three successive defeats including their 5-1 thrashing at home by Aston Villa before the international break.

"The injury situation is much better. It's not as bad as it was in the last few weeks, especially against Aston Villa," Farke said.

"The break helped us to settle and recover, so it came at the right moment.

"When we have all our players fully fit we are competitive at this level, even though we are the underdog in every game because we are a newly-promoted side that didn't spend lots of money.

"However, we have to make sure expectations aren't too high. One thing is to have players in training, the other is to have them fully fit."
