Onel Hernandez says that he and the rest of the Norwich City squad will continue to fight for points in the Premier League following the international break, amid a run of form that sees them at the foot of the league table.
City lost 2-0 to Watford at Carrow Road on Friday night, but Hernandez insisted the result was not reflective of the home side’s performance.
“We controlled the game and were the better side,” he said. “We made some mistakes and they are punished in this league.
“Mistakes can happen. We kept going after conceding the goals and got some control in the game. We created a lot of chances but in the end we didn’t score. They scored the second goal and that’s how it works in this league. If you don’t score and the opposition have one chance, they score.
“From the start, we had the game under control, and I didn’t think Watford were too dangerous for us, but it’s like I said. In this league, if you make little mistakes, they punish you directly.”
Looking ahead, Hernandez added that he and his teammates aren’t about to throw in the towel and will use the next two weeks to prepare for Everton and go again.
“We have to stick together, get closer and think about what we can do better,” he explained. “We don’t want to change much because, for me, we had a good game. It was just the mistakes that made the difference.
“Nothing’s over. We have to keep going on and focus on Everton after the international break. We’ll have some players coming back like Christoph Zimmermann and Grant Hanley and then we’ll start again.”
