Norwich need a response after Manchester City thrashing, says Hughton

The Canaries manager wants his team to improve after their 7-0 hammering at the hands of Manuel Pellegrini's men but have faith in themselves rather than dwell too much
Chris Hughton has urged Norwich City to put their 7-0 hammering against Manchester City behind them when they face West Ham on Saturday.

The Canaries manager saw his men drop into the relegation zone after their humbling at the Etihad Stadium, their sixth Premier League defeat of the season, and has come under increasing pressure for his side's poor start despite a summer spending spree of over £20 million.

5/1 Gary Hooper is 5/1 with William Hill to score in a Norwich win over West Ham
Following a run of five defeats and just one win in seven league games, the 54-year-old wants to see a positive response against Sam Allardyce's charges at Carrow Road.

Hughton told reporters: "It's our responsibility to get a reaction from the Manchester City game this weekend.

"Any negatives are in the past. We have faith in the ability that we have. The value of winning a couple of games is huge.

"We have to concentrate on ourselves. It's not about West Ham. It's a home game for us."

Hughton also confirmed that Netherlands striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel - who cost Norwich £8.5m but has scored just one goal this season - will miss the match with a foot injury.

Nathan Redmond will be given until the last minute to prove his fitness following a hip problem, while Scottish winger Robert Snodgrass is fine to play after recovering from concussion.
