Norwich City coach Chris Hughton seems to have righted what looked to be a sinking ship early on in the season, as his team stunned Manchester United 1-0 at Carrow Road on
Saturday. It was yet another solid defensive display from Hughton’s men, who have now only conceded one goal in their last five English Premier League games.
After the game, Manchester United coach Alex Ferguson was full of praise for Hughton and his players. “They defended for their lives and you know from the past few weeks there has been a big improvement in their defensive record,” he said. “Not losing a goal against Arsenal, not losing a goal against Stoke, so there is an indication that Chris has got their act together in terms of not losing goals. If you don’t lose goals then you always have a chance of winning the match.”
He added: “We’re disappointed to lose the game but we have to give credit to Norwich for the way they fought and battled for every ball on the pitch. They defended fantastically well and the goalkeeper also had a really good night so it’s disappointing.”
