The noises coming out of Norwich City this week had been combative.

The result was another defeat.

Following their 7-0 humiliation at Chelsea on 23 October, Norwich faced criticism across the spectrum

that they were a club not adventurous enough, that they had a manager without a plan,

that the players were not up to it.

Boss Daniel Farke and sporting director Stuart Webber both issued rallying cries and asked critics not to
judge their side after nine Premier League games.

But after their 10th game, Sunday’s 2-1 loss at home to Leeds, they are bottom of the table, with no wins,

two points and a stack of unwanted statistics.

For most observers, the question for Norwich has moved from whether they can survive to whether they can

avoid being one of the worst teams in Premier League history.

“If you can’t handle criticism or pressure from the outside, then you cannot do this job,” said Farke.

“I am not worried. I just want to protect my players. I am not thinking about my future but working with these players.”

So, where has it gone wrong for Norwich – and where do they go from here?

The Premier League numbers are dreadful for Norwich.

Farke has not won any of his past 20 top-flight matches – since a 1-0 victory over Leicester on 28 February 2020.

Andrew Omobamidele’s header against Leeds was only their third league goal of the campaign.

They have not scored more than once in any of their past 28 top-flight games and at the other end of the pitch,

Norwich have lost their past 33 Premier League matches when conceding the first goal.

Norwich won the Championship with 97 points last season but have not had a league victory this term.
