Norwich passed over Millwall 1:3 away from home, in maybe bit more difficult game than what was expected. The hosts didn’t surrender and had a nice amount of chances, but the Canaries looked like a more experienced side. It was their third victory in a row, as they remain first at the table.
Swansea deserved their victory in a 2:0 win over Bolton. It came late, with two goals inside the last fifteen minutes, however, the Swans were the ones who dominated the game and missed great chances before the lead, including a penalty kick. They remain in the mid-table positions with seven points less than the play-off zone.
The Canaries will be without midfielder Thompson (6/0) for this one. The guests miss defenders Olson (17/0), Rodon (23/0) and midfielder Fer (24/1).
— Norwich have scored at least 3 goals in 8 of their last 9 home matches.
The Swans aren’t a naive side and do have quality, however, the team didn’t look impressive on the road recently. Especially not against those in-form, motivated and sides who are battling for promotion – between which Norwich does stand out as one of the strongest, if not the strongest one.
