Norwich boss Daniel Farke: West Ham beat us in small details

Norwich City boss Daniel Farke felt they lost to West Ham due to the small details.

Sebastien Haller and Andriy Yarmolenko struck the goals for West Ham's 2-0 win.

Farke said, "At this level small details cost. This is a game where VAR didn't work. There was a nasty tackle against my centre-back [Christoph Zimmermann] and it wasn't even given as a free-kick.

"Then a few minutes later my centre-back wasn't able to spring back and block the cross [for West Ham's first goal]. My centre-back is now in hospital. My feeling was this made the difference.

"I'm not claiming for red cards, it is up to the VAR to judge it. The only thing I say is that my centre-back is in hospital and the other player is on the shoulders of the West Ham goalscorer. I'm a friend of VAR but on this day it didn't work."
