Draw at Bournemouth can be Canaries’ template for Everton trip – Trybull

Tom Trybull wants to see the same discipline and concentration that earned a 0-0 draw at Bournemouth when Norwich City return to Premier League action at Everton on Saturday.
The one positive result of the Canaries' seven-game downturn in form was that draw on the south coast, earning a first clean sheet of the season and chance to stabilise.
Three successive defeats have subsequently left Daniel Farke's team bottom of the table though, with a 2-0 home loss to Watford ahead of the international break particularly painful, after some disastrous defensive mistakes barely a minute into the game.
"I think we played a pretty good away game at Bournemouth also, after some defeats, but couldn't score," Trybull said. "We defended pretty well but this is the Premier League, we need to show that constantly.
"If you make one easy mistake or concede a goal after a couple of seconds, this is tricky and difficult for the mood in the whole stadium, and also the players.
"You want to show a good performance, you have so many things in your head, you have to show you want the turnaround and when something happens like that, it's not easy.
You may also want to watch:
"It's difficult but we need to learn. We made a couple of unusual mistakes in the last few weeks and when you do that on this level the opponent only needs one chance and they will score."
The Canaries will travel to Merseyside to take on an improving Everton, who bounced back from four successive defeats by winning two and drawing one of their last four games.
Trybull concluded: "This is the level of the Premier League and we need to adapt as soon as possible or it will be getting more and more difficult."

The midfielder returned from a month out with an ankle injury during that draw at Bournemouth and has started two of the following three games. It's the first time the 26-year-old has played top-flight football since spending 2016-17 with Den Haag in Holland, with the last of his 21 Bundesliga appearances for Werder Bremen being back in December 2013.
"Of course it is a good pace, the quality is higher than the Championship, that's normal," Trybull added. "I've played a second full game after my injury and I'm happy to be back but all that counts is the points."
