Like the majority of Norwich City fans on Saturday night, Emiliano Buendia felt hard done by for the Canaries not to come away with at least a point from the 2-1 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
“It’s frustrating when you lose after playing like we did,” he said. “We were hungry in the first half and had great chances. The second half was a bit tight and Wolves had two or three chances and scored two goals.
“Wolves are a really good team with good attacking players who took their opportunities. In the last few games we’ve played better and are more competitive. We have to be focused on the details and the wins will come.”
Buendia impressed, particularly in the first half, with a brilliant performance on the ball, pulling the strings in midfield and playing City’s forwards through on goal time and again.
“I felt good,” the Argentine said, discussing his own performance. “When we play like we did, I enjoy it a lot because we have very good players with quality. I’m playing one-twos with Kenny, Todd and Teemu and I enjoy it.”
At this time of year, players quickly have to turn attention to the next game, which is just around the corner. For City, it’s a Boxing Day visit to Villa Park against another side in the Premier League’s bottom half.
“We have to be focused on Aston Villa,” Buendia said. “It’s a really important game for our mini-league, so we have to smash it.”
