Teemu Pukki – Norwich’s Talisman

Teemu Pukki – Norwich’s Talisman

Of all the teams that got promoted this season to the English Premier League, Norwich City is looking like the one most likely to stay up. Aston Villa have a good squad but they are yet to produce a result that makes one sit up. Yes, they did beat Everton by 2-0 at Villa Park but given the Toffees’ form, I do not believe that is too significant. Sheffield United have won but only against the currently underwhelming Crystal Palace. …

Finnish-er Pukki bringing the good times back to Carrow Road

After Norwich's first-half defensive performance against Liverpool, you could be forgiven for thinking that yesterday's game against Newcastle would be a tough test for Daniel Farke's men. But the Canaries have one of those rare qualities of promoted sides - they are fearless. They showed against Liverpool they weren't afraid to take the game to even the highest quality opposition. Norwich continuously stretched Liverpool's backline with the searing pace of Max Aarons and Jamal Lewis. Marco Stiepermann found himself in …

Liverpool Vs Norwich City Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

“Ready to go!” tweeted Mohammed Salah a few hours ago. He could be speaking for the bulk of football fans who have been impatiently waiting for club football to start again in the earnest. And indeed, they do not have to wait for long as Liverpool will kick-off the season on Friday night when they welcome Norwich City to Anfield for the first matchday of the 2019-20 Premier League season. Liverpool and Norwich might seem a few worlds apart, given …
Crucial Juan-Nil Win For Manchester United At Carrow Road

Crucial Juan-Nil Win For Manchester United At Carrow Road

Manchester United laboured to a rare away win, this time at relegation-threatened Norwich City thanks to a good finish from Juan Mata. The win took Louis Van Gaal's side closer to their rivals Manchester City, now only one behind with the latter set to play third placed Arsenal this weekend. It was another dire, uninspiring performance from the Red Devils where the stale nature of the way United played overshadowed what was, in context of the league, a hugely vital …
Advantage Newcastle in the battle for Premier League survival

Advantage Newcastle in the battle for Premier League survival

The dreaded Premier League trap door is wide open and as the season draws to a close, we get that bit nearer to discovering who will join Aston Villa in falling through it to the Football League Championship. It’s been a season of twists and turns and, as is often the case, the battle for survival could still hold a surprise or two in store. Just a few weeks ago, Newcastle looked favourites to follow relegated Villa, but new manager …

Arsenal vs Norwich City Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Arsenal have gone from favourites for the title to fighting for fourth place once again and questions continue to be raised about Arsene Wenger's future. They need a win this weekend, and a convincing one at that, to relieve any doubts that people have about them being able to qualify for the Champions League. The visitors on Saturday need points desperately as they fight for survival. Since they last played, both Sunderland and Newcastle are building momentum and Norwich need …

The Relegation Battle: Five Weeks Left | Infographics

With only weeks of football left, for the bottom five clubs in the Premier League it has all come down to this. Some have their hopes of survival hanging by a thread - and some slimmer than that - whilst others are looking up the table rather than down. Either way, it looks likely that three of Crystal Palace, Norwich City, Sunderland, Newcastle United and Aston Villa will go down, and they have six or fewer games in which to …
Norwich Stifle Man City

Norwich Stifle Man City

Manchester City edged a point closer to Leicester City at the top of the Premier League table but this result surely represents ground lost by them in the title race. Rather than increase the pressure on the leaders, Manuel Pellegrini’s side performed like men who should worry about being overtaken by West Ham or Manchester United in the top four. The predicted would-be champions by most pundits pre-season have not won back-to-back league games for five months. The BBC commentator …
