Tim Krul insists that Norwich City won’t be fazed by the visit of Premier League champions Manchester City at Carrow Road this weekend.
Speaking in OTBC, Norwich City's official matchday programme, Krul discusses the test he and the team will face against what he labels one of the best sides in the world.
“Last year, if there was an injury and someone had to come in, they always stepped up to the plate and took their chance,” Krul says, commenting on squad rotation. “We’ll have new players coming in against Manchester City and they just have to show that they’re ready. The fringe players train so hard in pre-season and are pushing us so hard, so I’ve got no worries about that.
“Manchester City is world-class opposition and we can’t wait to challenge ourselves. We realise it’s not going to be an easy task but it’s one we shouldn’t put too much pressure on ourselves for.
“We should go and express ourselves. We’re against one of the best teams in the world but we’re at Carrow Road in front of our own fans, who have been incredible. Against Chelsea, from the first second to the last, we felt we were going to get a result out of that game, so why not against Manchester City?”
