Norwich City boss Chris Hughton calls on his team to focus ahead of a "big month".

Norwich City boss Chris Hughton has admitted that the coming month could shape the club's season.

The Canaries are eight points clear of the relegation zone, but Hughton has called on his team to focus ahead of matches against the teams around them.

"It's a big month for us, as it is for a load of teams. All the games for us are big games and they're tough games. Our season certainly won't depend on the result here, as we never thought it would," Hughton told reporters following Norwich's 4-0 defeat to Manchester United on Saturday.

"The game here at Old Trafford was never going to define our season. Anything we got from here was going to be a bonus.

"There's only one team that's come here and won this season and that's Spurs, so we knew it would be tough. But certainly the positive for us here was our first-half performance."

Next up for Norwich is a clash with Southampton at the weekend.
