Norwich City form and stats

Norwich City have played three Premier League home games so far, perhaps enough to set expectations for the season. In that case, only 0 points from these matches could be a signal of rough times ahead. Game days at Carrow Road have recently become somewhat of a nightmare for Norwich as they have lost three home games in a row. It hurts.

Norwich City are anxiously hoping for a goal as it's been 235 minutes since the last one in league fixtures. (Scored by T. Pukki).

Norwich drew their last game, 0-0 away at Burnley (placed 18th). Tim Krul, who guards the goal, was given a match rating of 8.13 out of 10 in that game. Krul stopped the opponent with five saves and topped it up with a clean sheet.

A defeat was the result before that one, 0-2 away at Everton.

Norwich have scored 2 league goals here from 3 matches, not a lot. As for conceded goals, Norwich's unpleasant statistic is 8 goals surrendered.

Brighton & Hove Albion form and stats

The seven points Brighton & Hove Albion have gathered from their first three away trips in the Premier League is impressive and could lead to great things if the form continues.

Brighton's last game was the home draw against Arsenal (0-0). Midfielder Marc Cucurella was the best performer of that match, with a rating of 7.71. Cucurella hit four key passes, dribled past the opponent 1 of 1 times and had 35 successful passes (of 43 total).

Before that, Brighton & Hove Albion travelled to Crystal Palace and returned home with a draw after the game finished 1-1.

Scoring goals is the main ingredient in creating success in football, and not only at home. So far Brighton have scored 4 goals in 3 league games away. They concede less than a goal on average per away game (2 so far).

Head 2 Head

As for the last ten games between these two teams, there's five Norwich victories, two draws and three Brighton & Hove Albion wins. Over/under statistics; five of these games ended with three goals or more, five matches with two goals or less.
