Drmic made his first start for City in the game, having appeared a number of times off the bench for the Canaries in recent months.
“It was a good performance from Josip, and it's always good when a striker has end product," Farke said. “He got a goal and had good workload. I'm so in love with this group of players because they are sometimes moody or not happy when they're not in the lineup or the squad, but to come in without being in that rhythm and deliver such a team performance – committed, spirited, and top-class – says a lot about their character."
Asked for his thoughts on Ralf Fährmann's performance, after the 'keeper made a string of key saves, Farke was delighted.
“Ralf was one of the players who had to wait a long time to play," he said. “Last time he played 90 minutes was Crawley away. To make one or two crucial saves, one of which was world-class from Jay Rodriguez's shot in the first half, is good for him. It's good for the mood of the team.
“Tim Krul has had top class performances in the league. Michael McGovern has had good performances in the cup. In terms of goalkeeping, we have no problems – a top-class group on Premier League level."
