    • KICK OFF
    • 90'
      O’Neil takes one for the team as he fouls Ayew in the middle of the park. He sees the danger after giving away the ball on the counter-attack and gets his name taken by the referee as a result.
    • 90'
      Britton plays a pass forward to Ayew and the Ghana international scoops it forward first time looking for Gomis, but Bennett again clears the danger for Norwich. Top-drawer defending.
    • 90'
      Ayew drives forward for Swansea through the middle of the pitch as O’Neil comes across and clears the danger out for a corner to the visitors. The Swans are pushing for a late equaliser.
    • 0'
      That’s all from me, Matthew Judge, and it has been a great pleasure talking you through all of today’s action from Carrow Road. We hope you can join us again very soon. Take care!
    • 0'
      Solid at the back and threatening going forward, Norwich were excellent today and cancelled out Swansea’s passing. The visitors very rarely got in behind the Canaries this afternoon.
    • 0'
      It’s all over at Carrow Road and Norwich City have picked up their first win since September thanks to a Jonny Howson tap-in in the second half. Swansea dominated possession but never looked like scoring a goal.
    • 0'
    • 0'
      Both goalkeepers have rarely had much sent their way, in truth, so far but Fabianski has probably been on alert more so than Ruddy. The latter is getting good protection from those in front of him at the moment.
    • 0'
      It’s honours even here at Carrow Road so far as both sets of players trudge down the tunnel with the scoreline 0-0. Swansea dominated possession in the opening period but Norwich looked more likely to score.

    • 0'
      Both sets of players are stripped and raring to go as they leave the tunnel and enter onto the field here at Carrow Road. We are just moments away from seeing the action start to unfold.

      TEAM NEWS: Swansea manager Garry Monk decides to stick with the same XI that suffered a fairly comprehensive 3-0 defeat to Arsenal in their last game. Bafetimbi Gomis starts again despite facing the prospect of nine games without scoring a goal, with Andre Ayew and Jefferson Montero providing the su

      TEAM NEWS: Norwich make three changes from their 2-1 defeat to Manchester City last time out. Alex Neil has brought Wes Hoolahan, Andre Wisdom and Gary O'Neil back into the starting XI at the expense of captain Russell Martin and Matt Jarvis, who both miss out on the matchday squad entirely, and You

      Hello and welcome to our LIVE coverage of the Premier League clash between Norwich City and Swansea City from Carrow Road. The home side have only won once in five attempts on their own patch this season, but will fancy their chances of reversing that record against a team that have come away from t
    • 1'
      Norwich get us under way here at Carrow Road. The man in charge of the cards for today’s affair is Mark Clattenburg.
    • 3'
      Hoolahan chases and harries Fernandez and that forces the Swansea defender to slice the ball clear for a throw-in to Norwich. It’s been a tentative start to this game from both sides at the moment.
    • 5'
      Shelvey collects the ball in the middle of the park and sweeps a delightful pass through Norwich’s midfield towards an onrushing Sigurdsson, but it carries slightly too much weight as Ruddy collects.
    • 7'
      Shelvey switches play out to Montero who bursts beyond Wisdom down the left-hand side and wins a corner for Swansea as his cross deflects off Bennett and out of bounds.
    • 9'
      BIG CHANCE! Brady curls in a magnificent cross towards the back stick which Jerome meets, but he guides his header over the crossbar unmarked inside the penalty area.
    • 11'
      Shelvey takes a heavy touch in the middle of the park and that sees him lose possession to Brady, who nicks the ball away from the Swansea man’s toes with a good sliding challenge.
    • 12'
      Fernandez cancels out a long ball looking to pick out Jerome from Norwich but his header falls straight into the path of Howson, who stings the palms of Fabianski with a long-range strike.
    • 14'
      Sigurdsson plays a lovely through ball towards Taylor marauding inside from left-back, but Bennett shifts across well and makes a good tackle to snuff out the danger for the hosts.
    • 16'
      Howson plays a long punt forward hoping to pick out Jerome but Fernandez reads it well as he heads away the ball to Williams. Swansea are typically controlling possession at the moment but the Canaries are looking good.
    • 18'
      Bassong reads Ki’s attempted pass forward towards Gomis and tries to launch a counter-attack for Norwich, but Tettey gives the ball away to Montero on the breakaway.
    • 20'
      Olsson steams forward from Bassong’s pass away from Shelvey but he hits the ground hard as Naughton goes into a challenge full-blooded. The referee waves away both of their appeals for a free-kick.
    • 22'
      OUCH! Howson curls in a cracking free-kick which Fabianski punches away, but he gets wiped out by Bassong inside the six-yard box in the process. The Swansea keeper looks dazed after that.
    • 24'
      Shelvey loses the ball in the middle of the park as Hoolahan drives forward, but the Norwich man fails to play it to Jerome alongside him as Swansea get away with one there.
    • 26'
      Hoolahan picks up the ball down the left flank from Ruddy and sprays a pass through to Jerome quickly, but the Norwich striker gets denied a chance to score as the official on that side of the pitch raises his flag for offside.
    • 28'
      Naughton plays a through ball towards Sigurdsson who seems to leave the pass for Gomis, but it slows down on the way through as Bassong clears the danger for Norwich.
    • 30'
      Taylor gets on the end of a pass from Ki down the left and plays in a decent cross towards Gomis, who gets across Bassong at the near post but stabs his effort just wide for the visitors.
    • 32'
      Ki and Shelvey are controlling the midfield for Swansea at the moment and it appears as though Norwich are happy to allow the visitors possession. They defended well without it last weekend against Manchester City and are looking to repeat that this afternoon.
    • 34'
      Ayew turns around to his team mates and starts expressing his frustration as we edge closer to the interval. Swansea’s slow passing isn’t giving the Ghanaian enough space to move into so far.
    • 36'
      Olsson drives forward down the left-hand side and tries to pick out a Norwich team mate with a cross, but Ayew follows him all the way and gets a block in to hand the hosts a corner.
    • 38'
      NO PENALTY! Taylor drives infield again for Swansea and plays a ball down the side of Gomis, who backs into Bassong and falls to the floor inside the penalty area but the referee ignores his appeal for a spot-kick.
    • 40'
      O’Neil gets the ball out of his feet by playing in Olsson powering forward for Norwich, but the Swede blasts a cross too high and wide to the frustration of the home supporters inside Carrow Road.
    • 42'
      Norwich are enjoying their best spell of possession at the moment and they look a threat every time they move it down the left. The trio of Olsson, Brady and Hoolahan has been sharp at times.
    • 44'
      Tettey gets his head up as he plays a through ball looking for Jerome, but Taylor just about gets his body in the way to see the pass run through into the arms of Fabianski for Swansea.
    • 45'
      The fourth official on the touchline indicates that a minimum of one minute is being added on to the first half here at Carrow Road. Swansea are still in possession but are struggling to carve out chances.
    • 46'
      Welcome back! Swansea get us under way again here at Carrow Road as neither manager makes a personnel change to their sides during the half-time interval.
    • 47'
      SAVE! Howson gets down the right-hand side and sprays a cross in towards Brady, who gets above Naughton at the back stick but his header just lacks a bit of pace as Fabianski makes a comfortable stop to his right.
    • 49'
      Taylor tries to engineer a yard of space for himself down the left flank but he gets stopped in his tracks by Hoolahan as the referee awards Swansea a free-kick early in the second half.
    • 50'
      Sigurdsson bends in a free-kick towards the middle of the penalty area as Williams falls down under the slightest of touches from Bassong, but the referee waves away his protest for a penalty.
    • 52'
      Norwich have been quicker out of the traps in the second half so far and have picked up from where they left off in the first period in terms of looking dangerous down either flank.
    • 54'
      Tettey powers forward from midfield and looks to clip a threaded pass out wide to Wisdom, but Taylor gets there first and hands Norwich a throw-in. The hosts are on the front foot still.
    • 56'
      Ayew picks up the ball from Shelvey but Tettey nicks it away from him and sees it run through to Sigurdsson. The Iceland international tries to look for Gomis with a pass but Bennett wins it back off him.
    • 58'
      CLOSE! Howson plays a cracking pass to Hoolahan but the Irish midfielder gets his angles wrong as he tries to play it on to Jerome next to him. Fernandez wins the ball and gets Swansea in control.
    • 60'
      Hoolahan tries to get on the ball again just outside the penalty area with Norwich players all around him, but Fernandez smothers him and gets rid of the danger for Swansea.
    • 62'
      Olsson brushes Ayew in the face with his elbow as both players compete for an aerial ball and that sends the former Marseille man to the floor looking for a free-kick. The referee lets play go on, though, as Routledge looks set to enter the field of play in the next few minutes.
    • 64'
      SI W. Routledge SO J. Montero
    • 64'
      Garry Monk makes his first change of the game for Swansea as he takes off Montero, who was quiet in the second half, and replaces him with Routledge just after the hour mark. Ayew switches over to the left flank now.
    • 64'
      Taylor curls in a cross from the left-hand side towards the middle of the penalty area, but Gomis fails to get on the end of the ball in. O’Neil looks to try and break for Norwich now.
    • 66'
      OFF THE WOODWORK! Routledge gets given too much time and space down the right-hand side and that allows him to pick out Sigurdsson, who scoops an effort onto the crossbar from inside the box.
    • 68'
      SI D. Mbokani SO J. Montero
    • 68'
      Neil makes his first change of the game for Norwich as he takes off Jerome, who played well up top on his own for long spells, and replaces him with Mbokani in a straight striker swap up top for the hosts.
    • 68'
      Brady curls in a cracking free-kick from only just inside Swansea’s half towards the left, but Fernandez gets above Mbokani and clears the danger for the visitors. He’s been terrific today.
    • 69'
      SAVE! Brady dips infield from the left-hand side and drives a right-footed effort towards the far post, but Fabianski tips it around the post to hand Norwich a corner. Fantastic stuff from the Swansea shot-stopper.
    • 70'
      G J. Howson Assist J. Montero
    • 70'
      The assist came from D. Mbokani.
    • 70'
      GOOOOOOOOOOOAAALLLLLL!! It’s 1-0 to Norwich! Mbokani knocks down Brady’s fabulous corner to Howson, who loses Shelvey inside the six-yard box and heads home into an empty net to put the hosts in front.
    • 72'
      Swansea have added more zip to their possession since going a goal down in the second half, but Norwich are looking comfortable at the back and continue to pepper Fabianski’s box every time they go forward.
    • 74'
      CHANCE! Brady plays a one-two with Howson down the right flank and drives a low ball across the face of goal, but Mbokani stands still and fails to gamble to try and make it 2-0.
    • 76'
      Brady powers in another corner towards the back post and as Bassong climbs higher than Fernandez, he sends his header into the stand behind the goal from a tight angle. It’s still all Norwich now.
    • 78'
      SI L. Britton SO J. Montero
    • 78'
      Monk makes his second change of the game for Swansea as he takes off Sigurdsson, who was quite quiet for the Swans today, and replaces him with Britton in order to get more control in the middle of the park.
    • 78'
      Bassong sends Norwich supporters into a fit of nerves as he takes his time on the ball and almost allows Ayew to steal it away from him. The hosts are still in control at the moment as Swansea continue to look devoid of ideas.
    • 80'
      Swansea are still in possession now as Shelvey tries to pull the strings. The midfielder was to blame for the goal his side conceded and he’s trying to make amends in the latter stages of the second half.
    • 82'
      Britton plays a wayward ball in the middle of the park and that sends Mbokani off and running. The Norwich striker chooses not to take on Naughton and instead plays a pass towards Howson, but Williams clears in the nick of time.
    • 84'
      Swansea have had the lion’s share of the ball today but for all their passing, Norwich have been pretty comfortable in defence and haven’t looked like conceding so far this afternoon.
    • 86'
      Shelvey plays a lofted pass down the right flank towards Naughton powering forward, but he puts too much on it as Olsson sees the ball out of bounds for a Norwich goal-kick.
    • 87'
      SI Éder SO J. Montero
    • 87'
      Monk makes his third and final substitution for Swansea as he withdraws Shelvey and replaces him with Eder. The Swans are going for it here with two strikers on the pitch and are just looking to get balls into the box now.
    • 88'
      Brady rises above Eder and clears away a cross at the near post. The Norwich man stays on the floor and looks in a bit of pain here, which will be a concern for Canaries boss Neil.
    • 90'
      SI Y. Mulumbu SO J. Montero
    • 90'
      Neil makes his second change of the game for Norwich as he takes off Hoolahan and brings on Mulumbu. The latter will come on now just to sew things up in the middle of the park as they close in on three points.
    • 90'
      The fourth official on the touchline raises his board and indicates that a minimum of four minutes is being added onto the second here at Carrow Road. Is there time for Swansea to turn the game on its head?
