Match Preview: Norwich City v Southampton

19 June 2020

Premier League football returns to Carrow Road as Norwich City host Southampton in their first game for over 100 days on Friday (6pm KO).

Our match preview has an overview of the fixture’s history, an insight into the Saint’s season and a look at who will be the man in the middle.

The opposition

Seeing a huge lack of footballing action like all other teams, Southampton’s form is more or less redundant, playing their last game 104 days prior to their clash with the Canaries.

Before the break, the Saint’s won just a single game of their last five, losing all others to opposition including Newcastle, West Ham, Burnley and Spurs.

Sitting relatively comfortable at 14th after ten wins, four draws and 15 losses, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side can rest easy knowing a relegation threat would require a serious downturn in results.

Southampton will also be without Moussa Djenepo through a suspension picked up back in March. Djenepo has been a stand-out player this season for the Saints, proving to be an excellent box-to-box midfielder for the side.

Southampton’s biggest talent so far this season is Danny Ings. The 27-year-old has been red-hot in front of goal scoring 15 and assisting one goal in 29 appearances for the Saints.

Head-to-head

The Canaries last met Southampton in December earlier this season at St Mary’s Stadium, a game which saw the Saints edge City 2-1 to take all three points.

The last league meeting at Carrow Road between the two sides came back in 2016, City taking the win on that occasion thanks to an Alex Tettey strike inside the box.

Ref watch

Kevin Friend will be the man in charge for Friday’s fixture. Friend has overseen a total of 28 games so far this season, handing out 82 yellows and six red cards in those matches.

He was last appointed to officiate a Norwich game back in December 2019 for a league game against Tottenham Hotspur. The game ended in a 2-2 draw after a late equaliser from Harry Kane on the penalty spot. Friend showed six yellow cards in the match.

For this weekend’s fixture, his assistants will be Adrian Holmes and Simon Beck, with Dean Whitestone the fourth official. Simon Hooper and Mark Scholes will be overseeing VAR.

Match Reports

City beaten comfortably by Southampton

19 June 2020

Norwich City were beaten by Southampton for the second time this season in a 3-0 defeat at Carrow Road on Friday evening.

Daniel Farke made three changes to the last starting line-up back in March against Sheffield United, with Timm Klose, Tom Trybull and Josip Drmic coming into the eleven. 

As for Southampton, Ralph Hasenhuttl saw Stuart Armstrong, Nathan Redmond and Michael Obafemi return to the Saint's starting eleven at Carrow Road.

City were given the first opportunity of the game by the second minute when Teemu Pukki won a free-kick in the attacking half. Emi Buendia stepped up to the cross, seeing Trybull offered the chance of a half-volley, but it was cleared away by Southampton. 

Just minutes later, Kenny McLean took a shot from distance for City's second stab at a goal, the effort just wide of the post.

Southampton's first chance came from a rapid counter-attack from a Canaries corner, seeing Redmond set off. The attack came to nothing when Jamal Lewis managed to match the ex-City star's pace to see the danger away, however.

The Saints next tested Tim Krul's reactions just before the 30-minute mark, when a James Ward-Prowse corner was caught by Armstrong. The volley sifted through the crowd of shirts, but Krul made no fuss of the effort.

Danny Ings found himself having the best chance of the first-half, his effort ringing off the crossbar as a stern warning to the Canaries.

A nice passing move then found McLean with an opportunity to shoot on the edge of the Southampton 18-yard box, but the effort wasn't caught as well as it could be, leaving no troubles for Saints 'keeper Alex McCarthy. 

A free-kick reminiscent of Buendia's first of the game saw Klose win the header, but the Swiss defender couldn't quite nod it on toward goal, going out for a goal-kick to more or less wrap up the first-half.

The second-half started in Southampton's favour when Ings capitalised on a defensive error, his effort finding the far corner to give the visitors the lead in the 49th minute. 

It didn't take long for the Saints to double their lead, when a low-driven effort from Armstrong beat Krul to the back of the net, minutes after their opener.

City thought they had recovered a goal after Mario Vrancic tapped the ball home in his first action as a substitute, but the linesman's flag was up on the far side for offside.

From then on, it became fairly quiet in the game. Whilst Southampton were enjoying the better amount of possession, City were swatting away any attack they faced.

This was until the 78th minute, when Redmond added a third to Southampton's tally. The ex-City man shook off Ben Godfrey with in the 18-yard box, firing one past Krul to see the result wrapped up in Saints favour.
