‘We will not be too addicted to the table’: Norwich manager Daniel Farke says the team won’t over-analyse their position as German insists club are looking higher than 17th place on their Premier League return

  • Daniel Farke is aiming for higher than 17th-placed survival for Norwich
  • The Canaries made a swift return after their relegation in the 2019/20 season 
  • Similar to that season, Norwich open up the campaign against Liverpool  

Norwich head coach Daniel Farke will not become ‘addicted’ to analysing their position in the Premier League table and insists the target is higher than 17th-placed survival.

Last season, the Canaries secured a swift return to the top flight for the second time in three years. 

But having ended that previous campaign rock bottom, finishing with nine successive defeats after Project Restart, the only way is up.

The Canaries bounced straight back to the top flight as Championship winners in 2020-21

Liverpool come to Carrow Road on Saturday, before Norwich face a daunting trip to champions Manchester City followed by FA Cup winners Leicester.

Farke said: ‘We will not be too addicted to the table. We know if we finish in position 17, we will get lots of praise, everyone will celebrate and probably have a ‘not relegated’ parade through the city.

‘I want to go into each and every game as the best Norwich side we can be, to deliver top performances and results, then we will see the outcome. 

‘We are still the underdog, but we are better prepared now as group of players.’

Similar to their last campaign in the top flight, Norwich play Liverpool on the opening day
