Canaries defeated in Emirates FA Cup

CAMERON Jerome says Norwich City must move on quickly after being beaten 3-0 by Manchester City in the Emirates FA Cup at Carrow Road on Saturday.

The Canaries bowed out of the competition at the third round stage, as goals from Sergio Aguero, Kelechi Iheanacho and Kevin De Bruyne saw the visitors progress.

Speaking after the game, Jerome told Norwich City TV: "Playing against a side like Manchester City, it was always going to be a tough ask to get through.

"We did some good things in the game, but there's disappointment in the dressing room. I think we had some good spells, although once they got a couple of goals ahead we were chasing the game.

"It would have been nice to make the next round, but there's no disgrace in losing to a team like Manchester City. We've got to move on because we've got a big month ahead of us."

City's cup elimination leaves their attention firmly placed on the Barclays Premier League for the rest of the season, starting with testing visits to Stoke City and Bournemouth in the upcoming week.

"The league is our bread and butter, so we'll focus on that now," the 29-year-old forward explained.

"We've done really well recently and need to take that form on. There are two tough games in a week away from home coming up so it's vital we pick up points.

"It'd be nice to take something from either game."
