The first player to feature in this doomed eleven would be Russell Martin. It’s fair to say that Martin’s first year back in the Premier League hasn’t really been a success. He’s received numerous criticism from the Canary faithful, as the Scottish international still attempts to force his way into the centre-half position. The stats also don’t help Martin out, with the former Peterborough man having only three players have committed more errors leading to an opposition shot than his four this season.
The second player to feature is left-back Martin Olsson. Although Olsson hasn’t been a constant presence in the Norwich team this season thanks to Robbie Brady occupying the left back position, he has been somewhat of a disappointment. The Swede has averages of 1.2 tackles and 1.0 interceptions per game, ranking him pretty low in even Norwich’s defence. Norwich have also conceded over 2.0 goals per game when Olsson has started for the Canaries.
The last Canary to feature is Graham Dorrans. The former West Brom man has struggled to hold down a starting spot for Norwich, and his statistics seem to show why. Dorrans has failed to score so far this season and has only registered a single assist so far. He also only has averages of 1.1 tackles, 0.9 interceptions, 0.7 shots and 0.7 key passes per game, which goes a long way to explaining his absence in the starting XI for the majority of the year.
