Dean Smith: Norwich City will survive in Premier League

Norwich City manager Dean Smith has said that he is confident that he can keep his new club in the Premier League.

Smith was sacked as the Aston Villa manager last week following a run of five Premier League defeats.

The Englishman was then appointed as the new manager of Norwich.

The Canaries had earlier dismissed Daniel Farke.

Smith told Sky Sports: “We’ve got 27 games left in the Premier League, so there’s a lot of points to play for and we’re just on the back of a win. 

“I’ve seen how progressive this club has been. Yes, it’s been difficult in the Premier League so far. Mine and Craig [Shakespeare’s] job, along with the rest of the staff and Stuart [Webber], is to keep us in the league this season and that’s firmly what we believe we can do. 

“We’ve got a great belief that we can get as many points as we can in 27 games to stay in this league and I believe the squad is capable of doing that. 

“The club got their first win away at Brentford in their last game and we can build on that confidence that the players should’ve got from that. 

“I think there is enough quality [in the squad]. I’ve looked at the squad with Craig [Shakespeare] and we both believe it’s a squad that probably isn’t producing the results they need. 

“Our job is to improve their performance levels, if we do that then we’ll get the results.”

Norwich are at the foot of the Premier League table at the moment with five points from 11 matches.

The Canaries are five points behind 17th-placed Watford and can be backed at 4/1 on Betfair to stay up.
