  2. Lawro's predictions: Norwich v Tottenhampublished at 17:54 20 May

    After more than 20 years, legendary BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson is making his final set of Premier League predictions this weekend.

    Lawro's prediction: 0-2

    I know there is this perception that Tottenham can always slip up, but not this time.

    I am expecting Norwich to give them a game but Spurs have got Dejan Kulusevski now as well as Harry Kane and Son Heung-min and I don't see the Canaries holding out, let alone beating them.

    Spurs have fought so hard to get into this position, where they just need a point to get back into the Champions League after two seasons away. I don't see them falling at the final hurdle.

    Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte says striker Harry Kane should be fit to face Norwich despite feeling unwell.

    Kane is thought to be suffering from the same virus that affected a number of staff and players last week and caused the England captain to miss media commitments on Friday.

    Norwich City midfielder Mathias Normann has recovered from a knock picked up during last weekend's draw with Wolves.

    Billy Gilmour has returned to parent club Chelsea for treatment after rolling his ankle while defender Ben Gibson is struggling with a back issue.

  4. 'It's been a failure' - Smith on his first six months as Norwich bosspublished at 09:45 20 May

    Dean Smith admits his first six months in charge of Norwich City have been a failure as he contemplates a swift return to the Championship after Sunday's game with Tottenham.

    Smith replaced Daniel Farke in November but his arrival has not sufficiently galvanised a Canaries side that has only won five games all season.

    "Ultimately, it's been a failure," he said. "We were brought in to keep the club up.

    "There have been good moments, like Jon Rowe's emergence, but I feel for the supporters.

    "We have to keep fighting."

    After winning the Championship title in two of the past four seasons, Norwich have plenty of experience at the lower level.

    Smith confirmed plans are in place for another promotion tilt and that he does not believe he will have to sell first in order to buy players this summer.

  5. Smith on Sinani, Cantwell and Spurspublished at 09:24 20 May

    Dean Smith has been speaking to the media before Norwich's final game of the season at home to Tottenham on Sunday.

    Here are the key lines from his news conference:

    • Smith says Billy Gilmour and Ben Gibson are both doubtful but he is hoping they will be fit enough to feature. Gilmour has returned to Chelsea for an assessment on his ankle, while Gibson is struggling with a back injury. Mathias Normann has trained and is fit.

    • He says plans are in place for next season and these will continue over coming weeks. In the meantime, he’s heading for a brief US holiday to watch his son play.

    • He dismissed rumours linking Norwich with West Brom defender Cedric Kipre as “not true”.

    • The loanees have returned - except for Danel Sinani, who has a play-off semi-final with Huddersfield to prepare for: “We’ll have a look at Sinani during pre-season. It’s been great to see Jordan Hugill, Sam McCallum, Onel Hernandez and Bali Mumba around us.”

    • Todd Cantwell will also return to Norwich after his loan spell at Bournemouth: “I envisage him being back for pre-season. Bournemouth haven’t taken up the option.”

    • On the challenge of playing Spurs: “We are aware of the threats of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. Son is one of the best at making deep runs into space behind you, while Kane is an unbelievable finisher who can play as a nine or a 10. Our players have to be ready for it.”

    • Norwich have won just one of their past nine league games against Tottenham (D3 L5) - 1-0 at home in February 2014. The Canaries have conceded at least twice in their past five matches against Spurs (D1 L4).

    • This will be the sixth time Spurs have faced a side already relegated from the Premier League on the final day of the season, though they’ve lost more of those games (three) than they’ve won (two).

    • Tottenham have lost their final league game just once in the past 11 campaigns (W8 D2) - but that was 5-1 at already-relegated Newcastle in 2015-16.

    • The bottom side have won their final Premier League match in just two of the past 16 seasons (D3 L11).

    • Wolves remain unbeaten against Norwich in their past six league encounters (W3 D3), drawing home and away against the Canaries in a league season for the first time since 1998-99 (0-0 and 2-2 in the second tier).

    • Teemu Pukki has been directly involved in 61% (14/23) of Norwich City’s goals in the Premier League this season; only Alan Shearer (62% for Blackburn in 1995-96) and Matt Le Tissier (69% for Southampton in 1993-94) have ever been involved in a higher share of their side’s goals in a single campaign in the competition.

    • Bruno Lage's side are winless in their past six Premier League games (D2 L4), their longest run without victory within a single season in the competition since January 2021 (8 games, D3 L5).

    • Norwich are winless in their past three away league games against Wolves (D2 L1), while winning just one of their past 17 such league games (D7 L9), while the Canaries remain winless in 11 top-flight away matches against the Wanderers (D3 L8).

  10. Familiar failings cost Wolves dear against resolute Norwichpublished at 07:17 16 May

    Wolves boss Bruno Lage has been bemoaning his side's inability to avoid conceding the first goal while on top for weeks now, so his frustration was understandable after Wolves failed to complete a turnaround against Norwich.

    While they were flat and uninspired in the first half, they were controlling the game, but defensive issues had allowed Teemu Pukki three golden opportunities to score for Norwich. That he only took one was the main source of Dean Smith's complaints at full-time.

    After the break, there was more purpose about Wolves. Chiquinho came on at half-time and made a real difference, and it took 10 minutes for the equaliser to come. From there, it felt as though the tide had turned sufficiently for Wolves to earn just a second victory in seven games.

    However, Angus Gunn's fine save to deny Pedro Neto meant Norwich dealt with the best Wolves could throw. While Norwich looked shaky at the back for a spell, they were much stronger generally as Smith's side "stopped the bleeding", as he put it.

    Overall, it is hard to say that we learned anything new from what was a standard curtain-closing game.

  11. Wolves 1-1 Norwich - Dean Smith reactionpublished at 16:32 15 May

    Norwich boss Dean Smith speaking to BBC Match of the Day: "We certainly did [get an encouraging performance in the first half]. We had three wonderful chances; Teemu [Pukki] has been put through a number of times. I thought defensively we restricted them to not many chances at all. It was a really good, workmanlike performance but I'm disappointed we haven't got all three because we could have been more than a goal up at half time.

    "[The equaliser] was preventable because it wasn't a free kick! Unfortunately we have decisions like that go against us week in, week out. We are disappointed by that. We wanted to stop the bleeding today; we've been conceding too many goals and too many big chances. I thought we did that today. Second half, we were careless on the ball and didn't keep it as well as we did first half. We thoroughly merited the point."

    Lawro's prediction: 2-0

    Wolves were on a poor run of form even before they got taken apart by Manchester City on Wednesday, but this is a great chance for them to sign off for the season with a win in front of their own fans, in their last home game of the campaign.

    Norwich are already thinking about next season in the Championship and might give more chances to some of their younger players after 19-year-old winger Tony Springett did well against Leicester.

    This will be great experience for them but it's hard to see them getting anything at Molineux.

    Norwich City have the same squad available for selection from the defeat at Leicester City on Wednesday.

    Tim Krul, Kieran Dowell and Brandon Williams are among those who could return after remaining on the bench in midweek.

  16. Smith targets attacking reinforcements for the Championshippublished at 09:50 13 May

    Dean Smith says "we all know goals change games" as he reflects on a disappointing season for Norwich during which they have only hit the net 22 times in 36 Premier League games.

    The Canaries travel to Molineux on Sunday to face Wolves, a side they beat in the FA Cup in February, with only the prospect of finishing 19th to aim for.

    "We have had some big moments in games that we have not taken," he said. "That is frustrating because we all know goals change games.

    "Now we are going into the Championship, where the levels are not as high. We need to add players in the attacking areas to create goals."

    Despite being the lowest scorers in the league, Smith appeared to back existing forwards Teemu Pukki, Adam Idah and Josh Sargent to get goals next season.

    "It is in creating chances where we will need to bring people in," he said.

    He also called for a positive end to the season against Wolves and Tottenham next Sunday to generate momentum for next season.

    "I have been through a period of mourning and now I want to get back to enjoying football games," he said.

    "I want the players to go out and play with freedom."

  17. Smith on squad atmosphere, signings and Wolves memoriespublished at 09:25 13 May

    Dean Smith has been speaking to the media before Sunday’s game against Wolves at Molineux.

    Here are the key lines from his news conference:

    • Smith confirmed no further injuries and he will pick from the same squad that travelled to Leicester.

    • He wants his players to end the campaign well: “We don't want to finish the season with doom and gloom. I want the players to go and enjoy themselves and play with a bit of freedom.”

    • On the atmosphere among his squad: “Fans don’t want to see me smiling. But I’m a human being and I don’t want the players to see me being negative. I’m not coming to training in a clown outfit.”

    • He wants to sign players that can make goals rather than needing personnel to score them: “It is creating chances where we need to bring people in. We are going into the Championship where the levels aren’t as high.”

    • On Wolves: “We have played them twice this season and played very well twice. They have not managed to score against us. We have good memories of playing against them and hopefully we can take that into Sunday’s game.”
