Chris Hughton: Aiming to secure Norwich's Premier League status

Chris Hughton: Aiming to secure Norwich's Premier League status

The Canaries' win over Everton last Saturday was their first in the Premier League since 19 December, encapsulating their second campaign back in England's top flight since winning promotion from the Championship.

Rising as high as seventh just before Christmas, Norwich have also conceded five goals on three separate occasions and were looking anxiously over their shoulders at the relegation zone before the victory over Everton.

It is such inconsistency that Hughton is looking to address with a view of becoming an established Premier League outfit.

"The teams that can be consistent are the teams that are used to this division, have the quality and are regular members of the division," Hughton observed.

"We are still striving to be that and along the road come the inconsistencies.

"However, in the end, there is only one thing that matters and that is we have enough points to still be in this division."

One source of goals for the rest of this season could be Kei Kamara, as the Sierra Leone forward notched his first goal since arriving on loan from Kansas City in the win over Everton.

Hughton, however, is wary over making early predictions on the 28-year-old's impact, adding: "He will help us. How much of a difference will he make? The judgement time will come after a few games."

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.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

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.
