  1. Thanks for your company

    FT: Norwich 1-3 Sunderland

    Sunderland celebrate with their travelling fans at Carrow Road. They've had less than 30% of the possession but fully deserve their win overall. It's an eye-catching result, in this very unpredictable division.

    Thanks for your company for this one, you've been great. I urge you to stay with the BBC Sport website now to follow live coverage of Manchester United v West Ham United (16:00 BST) by clicking here.

    We'll see you again on Tuesday for a full round of Championship fixtures. Au revoir.

  2. League One latest

    Wigan 1-1 Bury

    Meanwhile, we've had two goals early in today's League One game.

    Wigan went in front through Michael Jacobs, but Bury debutant Alex Bruce has brought the Shakers level.

    Look out for a match report on the BBC Sport website and app later.

  3. FULL-TIME

    Norwich 1-3 Sunderland

    Sunderland celebrate

    Sunderland have the three points! Simon Grayson has four points from his first two league games.

  4. Post update

    Norwich 1-3 Sunderland

    It's not going to happen for Norwich this afternoon.

    It'll be their first defeat under Daniel Farke.

  5. Post update

    Norwich 1-3 Sunderland

    Norwich launch the ball forward, but Jason Steele does well to get out and claim it in the air.

    Sunderland are closing in on an impressive away win.

  6. Post update

    Norwich 1-3 Sunderland

    It's all Norwich now. They're camped in the Sunderland half, but they're in to stoppage now and there will be at least five minutes added on.

  7. Post update

    Norwich 1-3 Sunderland

    Norwich win a 12th corner, this time through Josh Murphy. They're giving it a real go, but they might not have enough time left. This time Marley Watkins sees his volleyed effort blocked.

  8. SUBSTITUTIONS (Sunderland)

    Norwich 1-3 Sunderland

    Lewis Grabban

    Either side of another Norwich corner, Sunderland take off both of their goalscorers, as first Aiden McGeady is replaced by Lynden Gooch and then Lewis Grabban comes off as well, with John O'Shea coming on.

  9. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Norwich 1-3 Sunderland

    Russell Martin hits the post for Norwich from a narrow angle! Good chance!

    Moments later, Sunderland's Tyias Browning knocks the ball behind for a Norwich corner. The game is becoming stretched now with the Canaries committing plenty of players forward.

    Jason Steele punches the corner away for the visitors.

  10. Post update

    Norwich 1-3 Sunderland

    Norwich have around eight minutes plus stoppage time left to try and complete a remarkable comeback. It's a tough ask.

  11. SUBSTITUTION (Norwich)

    Norwich 1-3 Sunderland

    Moments before that goal, Norwich made their third and final change, with Wes Hoolahan replacing Steven Naismith.

  12. GOAL - Norwich 1-3 Sunderland

    Lewis Grabban own goal

    James Maddison's free-kick is headed back across Sunderland's box and, as the visitors fail to clear it, Lewis Grabban inadvertently puts the ball into his own net for an own goal.

    Is there time for Norwich to fight back after all?

  13. SUBSTITUTION (Sunderland)

    Norwich 0-3 Sunderland

    The visitors make their first change and on comes Darron Gibson for Lee Cattermole in midfield.

    There's a substitution full of Premier League experience, if ever I saw one...

  14. Post update

    Norwich 0-3 Sunderland

    Sunderland celebrate

    It was a brilliant cross in from McGeady and a well-time header from an unmarked Lewis Grabban, less than six yards out.

  15. GOAL - Norwich 0-3 Sunderland

    Lewis Grabban

    It's all over now! Former Norwich man Lewis Grabban has his second of the afternoon after good work from Aiden McGeady again, who sent over a perfect cross.

    Simon Grayson's men are in dreamland at Carrow Road. Who honestly saw this scoreline coming?

    Not me, after the first half an hour, that's for sure.

  16. SUBSTITUTION (Norwich)

    Norwich 0-2 Sunderland

    The Norwich fans who have been joining in with the #bbcefl chat get their wish, as Nelson Oliveira comes on for Cameron Jerome.

    Can he be the Canaries' hero for a second week running?

  17. Post update

    Norwich 0-2 Sunderland

    This scoreline will be raising quite a few eyebrows in the EFL.

    I saw many, many people write Sunderland off and not even list them among the promotion contenders this season, following their relegation last term and a summer of uncertainty.

    But an away win at Carrow Road would be a very solid statement, in this very early part of the season.

  18. Post update

    Norwich 0-2 Sunderland

    Aiden McGeady

    Aiden McGeady's goal is his first for Sunderland, after moving to the club for an undisclosed fee in July.

    Kid Presentable: Need to get Nelson Oliveira on. Destined to score similar to last week.

    Quite a few Norwich fans seem to be thinking along the same lines on that one.

  20. SUBSTITUTION (Norwich)

    Norwich 0-2 Sunderland

    Immediately, Norwich make a change. Josh Murphy is coming on for Yanic Wildschut.
