Some Norwich City fans are delighted with the performances of Tim Krul despite the club’s recent 2-0 loss to Brighton away from home this past weekend.
About a week after their 3-1 loss to Manchester United, Norwich conceded two goals in the second half against the Seagulls to lose at the Amex Stadium at the weekend.
Goals from Leandro Trossard and defender Shane Duffy saw Daniel Farke’s men stay in the relegation zone in the Premier League.
But some Canaries fans have reacted positively to Krul’s performance, despite the loss in the south of the country.
This league is unforgiving.. Better team won today.. pick ourselves up and we need to play better Friday..

He kept 13 clean sheets in the Championship last season for Farke’s men last season, appearing in all 46 league games. The former Seagulls stopper had made five appearances for Brighton during his stay at the Amex.
Some Norwich fans felt positive that times will get better for the club.
Onwards and hopefully upwards next game

Krul also impressed in City’s 3-1 loss to United at Carrow Road last weekend. He managed to save two penalties in the same half for the side, denying both Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford in the game.
The defeat to Graham Potter’s side saw Norwich stay at second-bottom in the league, four points away from 17th placed Everton.
What do we think?
Krul has been immense for Norwich even when the defence has come under criticism. If he had a better defence in front of him, Krul would have likely conceded fewer goals this season. He has the know-how of Premier League survival from his time at Newcastle United and if Norwich are to survive the drop, the 31-year-old’s leadership and experience will go a long way in determining that.
