The hunting on away grounds haven’t been very fruitful for Norwich City so far with only 9 points returning home. The records show 2-3-13 (win-draw-lose). It's looking increasingly bleak for Norwich who now has to deal with a five game losing streak. Burnley was the last time a defeat was avoided.

Norwich City are looking to quickly end their 398 minutes long goal drought in the Premier League.

Norwich play their second straight away game, having lost the previous one 0-3 to Leicester City (placed 10th). Defender Hanley was the best team player with a rating of 7.41. Hanley hit one key pass and won 4 of 4 duels.

The game before that, was lost at home, a 0-4 defeat against West Ham United.

The attacking power of Norwich City when travelling is not overwhelming with 10 goals scored from 18 league matches away. For Norwich, more than two goals on average per game end up in their own net.
