The struggles of those below them in the Premier League standings mean the Canaries are currently eight points clear of the drop zone.

It would not take much, though, for that gap to be closed and for Hughton's men to be dragged into a basement battle.

The Norwich boss is aware of the size of the challenge facing his side - with crucial clashes against Southampton, Sunderland and Wigan Athletic set to define their season.

"It's a big month for us, as it is for a load of teams," Hughton said in the wake of Saturday's 4-0 reversal at title-chasing Manchester United.

"All the games for us are big games and they're tough games.

"Our season certainly won't depend on the result here, as we never thought it would.

"The game here at Old Trafford was never going to define our season. Anything we got from here was going to be a bonus.

"There's only one team that's come here and won this season and that's Spurs, so we knew it would be tough. But certainly the positive for us here was our first-half performance."

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.
