Swansea vs Norwich – Premier League preview and team news

Swansea City will be hoping to continue their march clear of relegation danger by getting the better of Norwich City, who cannot afford yet another bad result in their own battle to achieve survival. March had the makings of a pivotal month for Swansea, but not many reckoned on them beginning it by going to Arsenal and winning for the second season in succession. It looked set to be a long evening without boss Francesco Guidolin on the touchline as their title-chasing opponents dominated the opening exchanges and took the lead…

Chelsea vs Norwich – Premier League preview and team news

After seven defeats in the first 12 rounds of Premier League matches, Chelsea’s latest attempt to turn things around comes at home to Norwich City, who ended their own bad run last time out.

Norwich vs Stoke – Premier League preview and team news

Norwich City will be aiming for their second win on the bounce on Saturday when they face Stoke City, a side they have only beaten once in six previous Premier League meetings. It has been a reasonable start for the newly promoted club, with an opening day comeback against Crystal Palace halted by a highly dubious refereeing decision before a dominant display at Sunderland was rewarded with a 3-1 victory. They played with all the intensity their opponents lacked on Wearside, producing neat attacking football which suggested they are very well…
