EXCLUSIVE: Norwich boss Daniel Farke is in the firing line

EXCLUSIVE: Norwich boss Daniel Farke is under increasing pressure after winless start to the Premier League season – as Eddie Howe emerges as a potential replacement

  • Norwich have only two points from their first 10 Premier League games this term 
  • Daniel Farke has not orchestrated a win in his last 20 games in the top flight 
  • He is under serious pressure and could lose his job without an upturn in form

Daniel Farke’s position as Norwich manager is under mounting scrutiny following his side’s winless start to the Premier League season.

Bottom of the table Norwich have taken just two points from their first 10 games.

They have failed to win any of their last 20 top-flight matches under Farke, a run dating back to end of their previous Premier League campaign.

Daniel Farke is under mounting pressure after Norwich’s dreadful start to the season

After Sunday’s 2-1 home defeat by Leeds, Farke maintained he is still the man for the job.

Farke, contracted to Norwich until 2025, also received public support from sporting director Stuart Webber last week.

Behind the scenes, doubts are emerging about whether he can spark an upturn in fortunes.

Should he miss out on the Newcastle job, former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is one manager Norwich are expected to consider if they opt to make a change.

The manager has not won a game in the top flight in his last 20 matches in charge 

Norwich went down against Leeds at the weekend and are rooted to the bottom of the table 

The Canaries have a run of games which could decide their Premier League future.

On Saturday they face fellow-promoted side Brentford before the international break. Norwich finished 10 points above Brentford in the Championship last season but trail the Bees by the same margin in the Premier League despite spending around £70m on new signings in the summer.

After the break, Norwich’s next three games are at home against Southampton and Wolves before they travel north to Newcastle.
