Norwich v Everton: What has been said?
Dean Smith has pleaded with fans to stop ‘sarcastic’ chants that he believes are not helping his side’s Premier League survival chances.
“I can be honest and say I don’t like the sarcasm from our own fans,” he said.
“We need to be together in this fight to stay in the league and as I’ve said the reasons for our performances and the results in the previous three Premier League games.
“We need our supporters to be with us as well, and I know at times there is only a minority, but I would ask them to refrain from that and get behind us and hopefully we can give them something to shout at.”
