Norwich Boss 'Very Impressed' With Swansea City

Norwich Boss 'Very Impressed' With Swansea City

Norwich City manager Chris Hughton says he's been 'very impressed' with Swansea City this season.

After a rather slow start to the season, the Canaries are now on a par with Swansea City in terms of recent form, as both teams are unbeaten in the last six with 3 wins and 3 draws. Norwich in fact are unbeaten in the last 8, and that includes a 1-0 win at home against Manchester United.

Talking about his side's opposition this Saturday, Hughton told the club's official site:

"I`ve been very impressed with Swansea, not only because of the run they`re on, but also the style of football that they`re playing.

"I thought they were very good last season, but they`ve added a bit and brought in players that have done very well in the team.

"The manager has used his experience in the Spanish market, he knows the players very well, and they`ve all hit the ground running - in particular Michu, who is scoring goals at a very good rate.

"Swansea are playing an exciting brand of football, and are probably playing as well as anybody in this division.

"With each game comes a team threat and an individual threat. We must make sure we`re as resilient as possible, but also that we have a threat ourselves.

"It`s not about one player, it`s about the whole team, and we`ll certainly have to make sure that we`re on our game to get something from it.'


The Swans face a tough match at home this weekend against a side who are now proving hard to beat - like they were last year under former boss Paul Lambert.

Both sides will be full of confidence but if Swansea City are at their best - like they have been in recent games - there'll probably be only one winner. If Norwich did win, it would be their first away victory of the season.
