Robbie Brady insists Norwich City's squad is in no doubt they are Premier League class.

City have enjoyed a productive festive spell after beating the 23-year-old's former club Manchester United at Old Trafford for the first time since 1989.

Norwich will look to pull further clear of the bottom three when they wrap up a hectic period against Southampton at Carrow Road tomorrow afternoon.

'There are so many twists and turns, especially when you get into the second half of the season. You look at previous seasons and you might pick out teams who looked like they are going down and it just takes one or two results,' he said.

'You are always looking for those little switches and we were due one. We know we can play some good football and if we iron out the mistakes then the second part of the season can be better than the first.'

Brady has been an ever-present under Alex Neil since his move from Hull City and the Republic of Ireland international is relishing his leading role.

The Dubliner underlined his versatility again in the 2-0 win against Aston Villa on Monday after replacing Martin Olsson at left-back.

'I have loved every minute of it. I want to keep my place in the team and so far I have been able to do that. I feel I am in good form and I believe I have done more good than bad since the start of the season. I am happy with my performances so far but you can't really dwell on them as a professional. The manager here has been excellent for me. He gave me the opportunity to stay in the Premier League and playing every week gives me confidence.'
