James Milner (l): No time to dwell on draw at Norwich

City have failed to score in consecutive Premier League games for the first time for over a year but Milner insists all is not lost.

"We were on top and had them penned in, they had a late chance but when you have that much possession, especially in the second half, it is disappointing not to get a goal," Milner told the club's official website.

"But you have to take the positives. We kept a clean sheet and maybe at the start of the season that is a game we would have come away and lost.

"We know the goals will come, we have created enough chances and probably should have got one, but it just did not go for us.

"You could look at it as two points dropped, but it is a point on the board and there is a long way to go.

"You can see how tight the league is at the top and the bottom, everyone you play is scrapping for points and a win can mean a big difference in league position.

"We are at home and it will be a lot different to the cup final, but we need to bounce back from this and show we are ready to go again."
