Todd Cantwell: Every time I put on the shirt I give 100%

18 February 2020

Norwich City midfielder Todd Cantwell says he gives 100% every time he pulls on the yellow shirt, following the Canaries 1-0 defeat at home to Liverpool.

"I’m honestly thankful every game that the manager selects me to start in," he admitted. "I’d like to think I’m repaying that and every time I put on that shirt, I’ll give 100%.

"I think I’m improving game by game and I feel like I’m becoming a better footballer. On a personal note, I’m loving it, playing in the Premier League against the best."

As for the game itself, Cantwell says City were unfortunate not to come away with at least a point.

"We showed a lot of resilience again," he added. "They are the best team in the world at the moment but they came to Carrow Road and didn’t have an easy game – that’s a credit to everyone.

"The resilience we’ve shown at home is something positive we can take but it’s a shame we’ve got nothing to show for it again. It’s been a bit of a reoccurring event.

"The way Sadio Mane takes that out of the air and the way he snaps at it with his weaker foot is frightening.

"We knew we were up against some of the best players in the world. Any sniff of a chance and you’ve got a horrible feeling they’re going to take it.

"When we get our chances, we really need to capitalise because we knew we weren’t going to have spells in the game where we would control the ball how we like.

"The resilience we showed against the ball, I feel like we deserved something from the game."

Had City got something from the game, they'd certainly have had the Carrow Road crowd for the part they played in Saturday's match.

"The crowd were brilliant," Cantwell said. "They matched us in many senses and got behind us when we were struggling. It’s disappointing that we can’t celebrate with them at the end of that."
