Chris Hughton: Norwich manager aware his side must be more creative

While Hughton's side head into Saturday's clash having lost just one of their last five league games, four of those have been draws, with only one goal scored in their last six outings.

The Canaries currently sit six points off the bottom three and Hughton is aware things need to change if they are to stay clear of the relegation zone.

"We have looked solid as a unit and I can't fault the lads' work ethic. Everybody is putting in a real shift for the team," he said.

"But we perhaps just need to be that little bit more creative, we certainly need to be taking our chances and perhaps need to be a bit more of a threat in the final third.

"At points this season our attacking play has been good, but for a club like ours it is difficult to sustain that week-in-week-out in this league.

"There will be ups and downs. You just have to hope that when you get the good period you get the points to go with it.

"We need to make sure that the gap that we have had between ourselves and the bottom three is something we can maintain.

"We now have 12 games through until the end of the season, we perhaps need to start turning some of our draws into wins.

"It goes without saying most people look at that 40 point mark, and that is achievable."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
