Daniel Farke: Norwich need a 'big miracle' to stay up

Daniel Farke believes only a "big miracle" will save Norwich from relegation.

The Canaries have lost both matches since the Premier League resumed after a 1-0 defeat to Everton on Wednesday (24.06.20) and are six points from safety with seven matches to go, and their boss believes it will take something remarkable to avoid dropping back to the Championship.

Speaking after the game, the German coach said: "[We need] even a bit bigger miracle. After each time we lose the situation is not easier.

"We are not naive. We can judge this in a proper way. We are in two competitions, the FA Cup and the league.

"It's not realistic for us to stay in this league, it's not realistic for us to stay in the FA Cup, but as long as we have a chance, we try to be successful in both competitions."

Norwich fell to defeat after Michael Keane's second-half header and Farke felt the loss was harsh on his team.

The 43-year-old manager said: "We're disappointed with the result. I think today a loss is not a fair outcome of the game.

"We were solid, spirited. We looked pretty sharp in the first half. We were the better side with good chances. We deserved more at half time.

"In the second half, one set-piece was the difference. It was a disciplined, spirited performance full of desire. We are disappointed with the result but not the performance. We tried everything today and more."
