Chris Hughton says that Norwich City did not deserve to get beat by Aston Villa at Carrow Road this afternoon.

Norwich City manager Chris Hughton has said that he is "annoyed" by his team's 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa in the Premier League.

The Canaries are now just three points above the relegation zone following today's result at Carrow Road.

"I'm annoyed and frustrated because there was no way we should have lost or deserved to lose," Hughton told BBC Sport.

"We were the better side over 90 minutes, but Villa have pace on the counter-attack and we have conceded two poor goals today."

Hughton also criticised the referee's decision not to show Joe Bennett a second yellow card after he conceded the penalty from which Grant Holt equalised.

"Joe Bennett shouldn't have been on the park - he was on a yellow card when he conceded the penalty and had two or three fouls after that," he added.

"I find it incredible that he was still on the park."

Norwich welcome West Bromwich Albion to Carrow Road next Sunday.
