Alex Neil: “We need to cope the pushiness of Chelsea”

Norwich came close to win against West Ham, leading 2-0 with 14 minutes to go before conceding two late goals. They played very well against Leicester and just another goal on the thin ice for The Foxes took away the glee for a brilliant and unexpectable draw against the first in the league.

Talking to Norwich City TV, manager Neil said: ‘In recent weeks we’ve had games where we’ve been in control of them, but for one reason or another we’ve let a lead slip or found ourselves on the wrong end of the result. Obviously I’m hoping that it’s going to change on Tuesday. If we can get something out of the game then it would be a huge bit of encouragement going into Saturday’s match.”

‘When we played Arsenal and Everton at home recently, we gave a really good account of ourselves and there’s no reason why this can’t be the same. ‘They’re going to come and try to open the pitch up and be really aggressive and attacking. It’s about how we cope with that and then carry out own threat at the top end of the pitch as well.’
