I think it’s fair to say that injuries tend to be more of a problem for the smaller Premier League teams. In general, if a Premier League club has started the season very well, but loses form, then it is usually because they have suffered injuries and this can cause them to lose momentum.
In Norwich’s case, the biggest injury that they suffered was to first choice goalkeeper John Ruddy. And it’s fair to say that Mark Bunn has struggled to find the same sort of form. But it’s also true that there have been other injury problems. Grant Holt recently had a period out of action and Steven Whittaker hasn’t played for some time now.
I remain confident that if Norwich can add to their squad through the transfer market, and get their first choice team back, then they will easily be safe of the relegation zone, despite what Ladbrokes have been saying.
So, I would suggest that money put down on the Canaries being relegated would be money lost.
