Positive result

A win against Villa would have placed West Brom just two points behind Norwich and would have increased the pressure on Daniel Farke’s side.

The Canaries are at the top of the Championship table at the moment with 40 points from 20 matches, just a point ahead of second-placed Leeds United.

Norwich will return to action on Saturday afternoon when they take on Bolton Wanderers at Carrow Road in the Championship.

Promotion challenge

Norwich went through a bad spell earlier in the season, but Farke’s side are in good form at the moment.

It will be interesting to see if the Canaries can sustain their challenge for automatic promotion to the Premier League until the end of the season.
