  1. Your thoughts on Norwich's transfer windowpublished at 18:19 24 January

    There's one week to go until the transfer window closes and we've been asking for your thoughts on Norwich so far - who should Dean Smith buy, sell or keep?

    Here are some of your views so far:

    Colin: My thoughts on Norwich City's January transfer window so far... what transfer window? We haven't done anything. Get rid of Cantwell he clearly doesn't want to be here and Placheta who isn't up to the English game. We desperately need to sign a centre-half and it would be great if we could keep Brandon Williams, he's class.

    Paul: We were desperate for support to help Pukki but our new attacking formation v Everton may be the answer, if Idah can continue with the same form, supported by Sargent and Rashica. I think that it is unlikely we will buy a new player, even if we sell Cantwell and/or Aarons.

    Joe: Awful recruitment over the past two Premier League campaigns desperately need a Premier League proven striker if we have any chance of staying up!

  3. Watford 0-3 Norwich: Pick of the statspublished at 08:32 24 January

    • Watford are without a win in nine games in all competitions (D1 L8), their longest run without a victory since December 2013 (10).

    • Norwich enjoyed their biggest margin of victory in a Premier League match since beating West Brom 4-0 in May 2013, and their biggest away from home in the division since September 1993, a 5-1 win at Everton.

    • The Hornets have now gone 30 Premier League games without a clean sheet (since a 3-0 win v Liverpool in February 2020), with only West Brom enduring a longer such run in the history of the competition (34 in 2011).

    • Dean Smith is the first Norwich manager to win back-to-back Premier League games with the club since Alex Neil in April 2016.

    • Since the start of 2016-17, only Arsenal (19) have picked up more Premier League red cards than Watford (18).

    • Aged 21 years and 335 days, Josh Sargent was the youngest player to score a brace in a Premier League match for Norwich since Dean Ashton v Crystal Palace in April 2005 (21y 143d).

  4. Relegation battle intensifies after Norwich beat Watfordpublished at 07:46 24 January

    Josh Sargent's exuberant celebrations, echoed by the visiting Norwich supporters, showed how important this victory was to Dean Smith's side.

    It is the first time this season Norwich have moved out of the bottom three, while defeat for Watford piles more pressure on manager Claudio Ranieri.

    Norwich were most people's favourites to go down at Christmas but back-to-back wins over Everton and Watford have seen them shoot up the table from bottom to 17th in just over a week.

    The relegation battle promises to continue as Burnley, now propping up the table, have four games in hand on Norwich, having had numerous games postponed because of Covid-19 cases and injuries.

    Newcastle United also have games in hand but, with no side in the current bottom six winning more than five games this season, Norwich will be heavily boosted by their recent victories.

    Ranieri's side still have two games in hand but it was an 11th defeat in 13 games during his Watford tenure, while Dennis' sending off means he will miss another crucial relegation battle with bottom side Burnley on 5 February.

    The Canaries face a tough February, including games against Manchester City and Liverpool, but Watford are under pressure to bounce back against Burnley in their next match having already dropped points to relegation rivals Norwich and Newcastle in recent matches.

  5. Watford 0-3 Norwich - Smith reactionpublished at 23:33 21 January

    Norwich boss Dean Smith tells BBC Sport: "When you go 3-0 up in a game, I expected us to see it out. It was not a pretty affair from us, we knew it would not be, but we started the game off really well.

    "The game got away from us in the first half but we spoke about it at half time, we were good without the ball today and not so good with it. We are in a results business, we needed the result today and it certainly gives everyone a lift."

  6. Watford v Norwich City - confirmed team newspublished at 19:00 21 January

    Claudio Ranieri makes four changes from the Watford side who drew with Newcastle.

    Daniel Bachmann comes in for goalkeeper Ben Foster, who is not in the squad.

    Tom Cleverley, Kiko Femenia and Christian Kabasele all start, while Jeremy Ngakia and Juraj Kucka drop to the bench. Craig Cathcart is not in the squad.

    Watford XI: Bachmann, King, Cleverley, Pedro, Kamara, Sissoko, Femenia, Samir, Dennis, Kabasele, Kayembe.

    There is just one enforced change to the Norwich side from the 2-1 win over Everton which led to the sacking of Rafael Benitez.

    Goalkeeper Tim Krul is ruled out with a shoulder injury so in comes Angus Gunn.

    Kenny McLean is on the bench after recovering from coronavirus.

    Norwich XI: Gunn, Aarons, Hanley, Gibson, Williams, Sorensen, Lees-Melou, Sargent, Idah, Pukki, Rashica.

    Subs: McGovern, Byram, Dowell, Placheta, Kabak, Tzolis, McLean, Giannoulis, Rowe.

  7. Lawro's predictions: Watford v Norwichpublished at 16:30 21 January

    Mark Lawrenson takes on singer and Chelsea fan Call Me Loop in the latest round of Premier League predictions.

    Mark Lawrenson banner

    Lawro's prediction: 2-1

    This is probably the biggest game of the weekend, when you think about how much is riding on it.

    Both teams ended six-game losing runs last weekend, with Norwich beating Everton and Watford drawing at Newcastle.

    Norwich's win was the only victory any of the bottom four teams have managed between them in the 20 league games they have played in total since 4 December.

    It lifted the Canaries up two places off the bottom of the table and shows how precious three points would be to both of these sides here.

    The scenario will probably make it a very nervy match, with both teams afraid of making a mistake, but I think home advantage will help the Hornets edge it - just about.

    Call Me Loop's prediction: Norwich will be feeling confident after beating Everton but I am not sure things will go their way this time. My best friend's dad and brother are Norwich fans so I am going to give them a goal, but I think Watford will take the three points. 2-1

    Find out how Lawro and Call Me Loop think the rest of the weekend's fixtures will go

  8. Watford v Norwich: Team newspublished at 14:30 21 January

    Tim Krul and Kenny McLean

    Watford have no new injury concerns for the visit of Norwich City, with the same squad available following the draw at Newcastle United.

    Imran Louza, Adam Masina and William Troost-Ekong remain at the Africa Cup of Nations.

    Norwich City goalkeeper Tim Krul has been ruled out with a shoulder injury.

    Kenny McLean returns after he missed the win against Everton due to Covid-19, while Max Aarons and Brandon Williams are available.

    Billy Gilmour, Mathias Normann, Lukas Rupp and Andrew Omobamidele should all be fit to face Wolves in the FA Cup on 5 February.

    The Canaries also need a win, so who are you picking?

  9. 'It’s going to be a cracking 0-0!'published at 09:52 21 January

    Former Watford and England goalkeeper David James spoke to BBC Radio 5 Live to give his thoughts on Watford v Norwich.

    "I think Watford have failed to score eight times, Norwich 12 times …. so it’s going to be a cracking 0-0! Although, having said that, Watford haven’t kept a clean sheet this season.

    "Norwich were completely out of it three weeks ago and now they’re one win off getting out of the relegation zone, so I think it’s going to be an exciting game."

    He added: "Both teams have a chance of avoiding relegation, but so have four or five teams - as Everton could even be drawn into it. We're going to get an exciting end to the season at the bottom."

  12. Gunn ready for Watford callpublished at 10:36 20 January

    Norwich boss Dean Smith says Tim Krul will be “a big loss” but is backing replacement keeper Angus Gunn to fill in for the Dutchman.

    The 25-year-old played in heavy defeats by Arsenal and Crystal Palace over the Christmas period but is in line to start in Friday’s crucial relegation match at Watford.

    “Tim has hurt his shoulder and I am not sure on the time with him at the moment,” said Smith. “He will be a big loss but when big players come out of the team then it is an opportunity for others.

    “Gunny was disappointed with the results we had in the two games that he played in and has been working hard to get that opportunity again.”

    Norwich have conceded the highest number of goals in the Premier League so far this season but Smith is confident the defence will be tighter at Vicarage Road.

    “It can be a lonely place being goal when you haven’t got the protection you need," he said.

    “We were lacking numbers against Arsenal and Palace but he’ll be much better protected now.”

  13. Smith on Krul, Watford & goalscorerspublished at 09:33 20 January

    Dean Smith has been speaking to the media before Norwich’s game with Watford on Friday.

    Here are the key lines from his news conference:

    • Norwich have goalkeeper issues as Tim Krul is out injured, with Smith unsure when he will return: “He will be a big loss, but when those big players come out of the team, then it is an opportunity for others.”

    • Kenny McLean is in line for a return, while Max Aarons and Brandon Williams are also fit, with Smith saying player availability gives them a lift: “I knew once we started getting players back, our fortunes would change.”

    • On the need to get a positive result against Watford: “We all know how important this game is against Watford. It can do a lot for the team that wins it. Our incentive is more to beat a team just above us – we know there is a small cluster fighting to get out of the relegation places.”

    • On easing the goalscoring burden on Teemu Pukki: “I said we had to share the goals with Teemu. Now, we’ve got the likes of Adam [Idah] stepping up.”
