Winger Nathan Redmond insists Norwich City are not frightened of imposing their own game upon their Premier League rivals.

The Canaries lost 3-1 against Crystal Palace on Saturday despite showing plenty of attacking intent at Carrow Road. And Redmond, who came off the bench to score against the Eagles, feels Alex Neil will make sure that aggressive attitude goes on even though his troops suffered an opening-day defeat.

The 21-year-old said: 'As the gaffer has always said to us, we go out there not to fear anyone. We try and work harder than everyone else and try and play better than most of the teams that come here. We want to make this a ground that teams won't really like coming to.

'I think on Saturday we didn't play so bad – bearing in mind the score was 3-1. If we'd have taken our chances it would have been a different story.'

Redmond netted after Wilfried Zaha and Damien Delaney had put the Eagles in control. Norwich would have drawn level had Cameron Jerome's sensational overhead kick equaliser not been controversially disallowed by referee Simon Hooper. Yohan Cabaye added a late third for the visitors.
