Hughton credits team effort as Canaries take flight
Latest news update:
Chris Hughton believes a collective team effort has been behind Norwich's resurgence after the Canaries chalked up another big scalp.
A well-executed header from winger Anthony Pilkington, once on United's youth books, after 60 minutes proved enough to give Norwich their third win in the last five Premier League matches.
Since the mid-October international break, the Canaries have kept four clean sheets, beating Arsenal 1-0 at Carrow Road, and conceding just once, in the 1-1 draw at Aston Vila.
It is a remarkable turnaround from the start of Hughton's reign, when Norwich had shipped 17 goals in the first seven matches, thumped 5-2 at home by Liverpool and then going down 4-1 at Chelsea.
"Any praise that I will get or achievements here is all down to 11 players on the pitch," the former Newcastle and Birmingham manager said.
"All you can do I is set a team up how you want to, try to motivate them, get them right tactically, but as soon as that whistle goes, it is about 11 players."
