Hughton rues Chelsea defeat

Norwich boss Chris Hughton felt his side were unlucky to lose 1-0 to Chelsea at Carrow Road.

Last Updated: 26/12/12 at 20:04 Post Comment

The Canaries slumped to their second defeat in two games thanks to Juan Mata's superb first half effort.

Hughton was happy with his side's showing and felt the difference between the two teams was that little bit of quality from Mata

"Chelsea came into the game on the back of a real big win, but we were right in it from the first whistle until the end," said Hughton.

"Our goalkeeper hasn't had to make too many saves, the one real bit of quality was shown by them and of course it was a wonderful finish by Mata.

"I thought at one stage when the game opened up I thought we could get something.

"We were close today if we have a little more guile, a little bit more quality in that final third then we get something, but we gave a good account of ourselves.

"If we had got something from the game today I don't think anybody would have begrudged us that because we certainly worked enough for it."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
