Norwich City manager Chris Hughton is the latest in the list of Premier League managers to get the boots this season.

The Barclays Premier League current bottom seven sides have all dismissed their managers, with Fulham on their third of the season.

The ‘Canaries’ confirmed on Sunday night the sacking of the 55-year-old former Newcastle and Birmingham boss and his immediate replacement with youth coach Neil Adams.

Norwich, who are five points above the drop zone with five matches to the end of the season, lost 1-0 at home to West Brom on Saturday.

They are still to play Fulham, Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal.

“The Norwich City Board has taken the decision to give the Club the maximum chance to secure the points required between now and the end of the season to ensure retention of our Barclays Premier League status,” the club said in a statement

The club have lost four of their last six league games, scoring just 26 goals all season.

“However the recent run of four defeats in our last six Premier League games and six consecutive away league defeats, left the Club with no choice but to act, with five games still to play in the current campaign,” the club added.

Hughton helped Norwich finish in an impressive 11th position in the Premier League last season.

The statement said: “Meanwhile the Club would like to place on record its sincere thanks to Chris Hughton, Colin Calderwood and Paul Trollope for all of their hard work on behalf of the Club since they took over in June 2012.”

Adams led Norwich to their first FA Youth Cup triumph in 30 years, courtesy of a shock victory over Chelsea in the final, in which his side won both legs.

The 48-year-old won the league title with Everton in 1987 and made 206 appearances in all competitions for Norwich between 1993 and 1999.
