Former Norwich City striker Chris Sutton has pulled no punches in his assessment of the Canaries' Premier League survival chances.
The former Chelsea and Celtic front-man, speaking on BBC Radio Five Live, said: 'I think Norwich are in big trouble, I think they concede too many goals.
'I think Norwich are where they should be, I don't think they're are under-achieving. I just don't think they are good enough, that's the problem.
'They can't score goals, the manager has tried to change things, has played different systems in his attempts to find a solution. The bottom line is, they're just not good enough player for player.'
The Norfolk-born 42-year-old also feels the experience of manager Sam Allardyce gives Sunderland an edge in the survival scrap.

'With regards to who is going to stay up now, I actually thought by the law of averages Sunderland would go down (but) Sunderland have the best man in charge, a man who has never been relegated before and they have a way,' he continued.
'Norwich's hope is they play Sunderland and Newcastle, they all play each other, and they have to win those games – that's the chance they have.'
