Hughton: Not expecting much movement at Carrow Road

Hughton's side have lost four straight in the league after a 10-game unbeaten run and Hughton has been linked with moves for Celtic duo Gary Hooper and Beram Kayal and Swansea frontman Danny Graham as he looks to avoid being dragged into a relegation scrap.

But the former Birmingham boss told the EDP: "I don't expect to be busy. We are, as most clubs will try to do, looking to strengthen the squad. If there are players there we will endeavour to do that, but I don't envisage massive changes.

"January is notoriously not a great time to bring in players. You have to make sure they are the right players at the right price and value which is why at this moment not a lot of business has been done."

"We are doing as much work as we can, not just these weeks during January, but the months leading into this period.

"If it is right and appropriate to do some business then we will do.

"We have lost the last four, but I don't think we have played badly. There is a lot of confidence in our dressing room."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
