Chris Hughton admitted to mixed feelings about facing a fortnight’s break after Norwich City produced their best performance under their new manager with a 1-1 draw at his former club, Tottenham.
The Canaries appear to have shaken off the effects of the disastrous 5-0 opening day defeat at Fulham, and on their return to London they might well have taken all three points.
Asked if he was sorry to have to wait two weeks for the Premier League visit of West Ham – another of his old teams – Hughton said: “Yes and no, because I think you like that period when the players can recover and recoup.
“But we now have more international players and what comes with that is the threat you could possibly pick up injuries. But that’s the same for everybody.
“Yes, I hope we don’t lose any of the momentum we have had over the last couple of weeks.”
England goalkeeper John Ruddy, Scotland pair Russell Martin and Robert Snodgrass, Wales striker Steve Morison, Canada striker Simeon Jackson, Norway midfielder Alex Tettey and England Under-21 pair Declan Rudd and Ryan Bennett are all on international duty before the next round of Premier League matches.
