Daniel Farke: Let's create something special

23 October 2017

Daniel Farke has tasked his Norwich City side with 'creating something special' when they travel to Arsenal in the Carabao Cup fourth round on Tuesday night (7:45pm).

The Canaries go into the contest as firm underdogs despite a run of five consecutive away victories, the latest coming against rivals Ipswich Town in the East Anglian derby.

Farke knows there is little in the way of external expectancy, but has firm belief in the ability of his group to cause an upset.

"There is no pressure on us because 19 times out of 20, Arsenal would go through to the next round," the Head Coach said at Monday's press conference.

"There is always that one time though, and that time is special. I like situations where people don't expect you to create special moments.

"We've won our last five away games and that gives us confidence. It's a big task but I'm concentrated on bringing the best result back to Norwich City.

"We're full of respect for Arsenal but we want to beat them. That's our topic and what we're trying to do.

"We're looking to create something special."

With the match coming so soon after Sunday's high-intensity derby, Farke accepts preparation for the fixture won't be as full as he would have preferred.

"It's just 48 hours between the games but we will give everything to win," he added.

"Tomorrow evening we will be there with a fighting attitude again. We will try to bring our theoretical plan without training too much at it.

"We have to be smart in our preparation. A lot of lads have to play again so we will speak in theory about the game.

"It's not easy, but it is how it is. We will travel there with a smile on our face.

"I like situations when everything seems against you. We will have a massive support and the fans can carry us."
