One away supporter even ran onto the pitch at Carrow Road to try to get to Benitez as his team dropped to within six points of the relegation zone.

He said: “I am a professional and I have enough experience of these situations. 

“I came here to fix issues that come from the last five years so what we have to do is analyse these mistakes we are making and try to avoid them.

“Other things are not in my hands. I am just trying to do my job.

“I am really disappointed that we lost and disappointed for the fans who are travelling to support us. It’s not an ideal situation.

“We have to improve things on the pitch, keep working hard and try to make the right decisions.

“We didn’t start the game well and after we made a couple of mistakes we had another mountain to climb.

“The team was much better in the second-half and now that we have Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin, Mina and Doucoure back we are expecting to be stronger.

“You can see that this is trying to react but we have to be more proactive. We can’t be conceding goals in the first minutes and then trying to react.

“It’s positive that we are reacting but these mistakes are costing us points and games every week.
