Farke revealed on Monday that his Birmingham counterpart Aitor Karanka made a brutally honest admission about his ultra-defensive strategy in the Canaries’ recent 1-0 home win

The Blues packed their defense at Carrow Road, in a bid to frustrate Norwich, and were on course for a point until the 87th minute winner Mario Vrancic

Given that Brentford tops the league tables and new signing Ivan Toney is the division’s top scorer, Farke doesn’t expect City to have to go looking for the Bees.

« Against Birmingham Aitor said to me after the game: ‘Sorry we just tried to survive You were way too good for us and we were happy to come back with a 0-0 or a 1-0 », said Farke « Brentford are such a fantastic possession team, but I wouldn’t say it makes the game any easier for us if the opponent plays a little higher

« We are not afraid of possession, we like to dominate the game In theory, the more ball we have the better we can control this game and prevent Brentford from creating too many scoring chances »

Toney is an obvious dangerman, after seven goals in seven league appearances since his £ 5million transfer from Peterborough to fill the void left by Ollie Watkins

« It’s not a big surprise for me He has shown he can score goals, although at a different level, » said Farke « He has entered a stable environment and a team that knows his work, a team that dominates in possession and creates many opportunities I was sure it would be a perfect fit He showed that at the start of the season which is great for confidence

« Maybe no one thought he would be nearly double digits already, so controlling him in our box is a big topic. He looks like a fantastic replacement for Watkins I’m not even sure if ‘he would have been there with seven goals at this point I don’t want to talk too much about their attackers

« I prefer to talk about mine. No Adam (Idah) but Jordan (Hugill) and Teemu (Pukki) have already scored goals this season »

Idah suspended after wave of bloodshed in the final stages of Saturday’s 2-1 win over Wycombe The young Irishman replaced Hugill in the second half, but Farke is happy with the impact at the start of the season. his striker animated at both ends of the field

« You can’t compare Jordan with Teemu or someone like Emi Buendia They’re all different, » he said « I don’t judge them from match to match I trust my players I don’t wasn’t thrilled when he scored that penalty at Rotherham or when he didn’t score against Wycombe When he’s on the pitch he is eager to score

« Jordan is a guy you can count on He has great body language, great for team building in the locker room

« He’s also important defensively in the corners. We haven’t conceded a single goal in this area yet, which was a problem for us last season. I don’t judge a player just on goals and assists »
