Match Preview: Norwich City v Swansea City

6 November 2020

Third and second go head-to-head on Saturday at 3pm as Norwich City host Swansea City in the Sky Bet Championship.

Our Match Preview takes a look at the Swans’ impressive start to the season, the officials in charge of the weekend’s game, and how supporters can follow the action live.

The opposition

Swansea have taken five wins, four draws and just one defeat from their opening ten league games this season.

After being knocked out of the Carabao Cup at the first round to Newport County, Steve Cooper’s side went unbeaten in the first four league games, picking up wins against Preston North End, Wycombe Wanderers, Millwall, and a draw against Birmingham City.

Following defeat to Huddersfield Town, back-to-back draws to Coventry City and Bristol City were followed by wins against Stoke City, Blackburn Rovers and, most recently, a 1-1 draw with Brentford.

Andre Ayew has looked deadly in front of goal, with five goals to his name already in 2020/21.

Ahead of the weekend, Swansea sit second in the Championship, one point ahead of the Canaries and three behind Reading.

Head-to-head

Norwich have a perfectly balanced record against Swansea. In the 56 meetings between the two sides since 1920 (when the latter were known as Swansea Town), there have been 23 Norwich wins, 23 Swansea wins and 10 draws.

Last time out, an Emi Buendia goal was all that separated the two sides, as Norwich won 1-0 at Carrow Road in the Championship in March 2019.

Ref watch

Darren England has been appointed to take charge of Saturday’s game, Peter Kirkup and Steven Meredith and Gavin Ward the fourth official.

England has overseen five games so far this season across the Premier League, Championship and Carabao Cup, handing out nine yellow cards and one red in the process.

The last time he took charge of a Norwich game was for our 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion in January 2019, Jordan Rhodes’ 83rd minute equaliser securing a point from The Hawthorns.
