Norwich boss explains why his team lost 7-0 to Chelsea

Chelsea were huge favourites to beat Norwich City at Stamford Bridge today, but not many would have predicted a 7-0 scoreline.

Chelsea dominated the game from start to finish, as Norwich looked poor all through the game.

Norwich boss Daniel admitted after the game that his side wasn’t good enough as he claimed that his team was too slow with the ball.

Norwich manager Daniel Farke told BT Sport: “We said before the game that it was the toughest task in world football. We wanted to be at the top of our game, but we were not. We were too slow with the ball, against the ball and with our decision-making. That’s why we lost the game.

“We were not sharp enough with the runs in behind – this was a topic during the week. The players are disappointed, but there’s no need to punish them even more. We had decisions on the pitch that were brutal. We were a bit over-motivated that we conceded the red card and three more [late] goals.

“I told the players whatever happens, we use the next two days to forget about this because it’s not season defining. One of the season-defining games comes in our next home game.

“It’s not good for our confidence to concede seven goals. We’ll be disappointed for the next two days. After that we keep going.”
