Chris Hughton congratulates Paul Lambert on Villa's 1-0 win

The Canaries lost 1-0 at home to Aston Villa on Saturday, which led to chants of "Hughton, sort it out" around Carrow Road.

They quickly have a chance to bounce back when they travel to take on Watford in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night.

"It was disappointing, but this is a very quick opportunity to get back in to football," Hughton said. "We want to get back to winning ways there."

One of City's main problems has been scoring goals, despite the arrival of a battery of new strikers in Ricky van Wolfswinkel, Gary Hooper and Johan Elmander.

Nathan Redmond's winner against Southampton last month is the only goal the Canaries have scored in their last four league games.

Midfielder Jonny Howson is confident the goal drought will end soon.

"We need to address that, yes, but these things happen," the former Leeds man told Canaries Player.

"It is a long season, we will have our ups and downs, but it's a good group we have here so we will keep working hard and it won't affect the team.

"Whenever you have had a defeat you want to put it right as soon as possible and it helps having a game so soon after.

"Tuesday will be tough going to Watford, they have some good players and they are a good team, but we will go there looking to do well."

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.
