Norwich boss Farke: We're doing things the right way

Norwich City boss Daniel Farke is happy with their start to the season.

After opening the season with defeat at Liverpool, the newcomers took their first three points with victory over Newcastle before losing at home to Chelsea.

Farke feels his side pushed Chelsea all the way in last weekend's 3-2 defeat, but admits they must turn positive performances into points.

"We have our strengths. My feeling was we were pretty close to gaining at least one point or even three points [against Chelsea]," said Farke.

"Of course there are some topics we can improve in order to protect our own goal a bit better, but I think it's also important to take lots of self-confidence that our way of playing, our philosophy, is exactly the right path.

"If we're just trying to park the bus with our type of players then we have no chance with teams like Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City or even a team like West Ham with so much quality.

"For that we have to go our own way and so far I'm pretty pleased with the performances."
