Venue: Carrow Road (Norwich).
Norwich takes on West Bromwich Albion in another EFL Championship game from the second round. Both teams have just a single point so far but the visitors have already played 2 games.
Norwich finished in an entertaining draw last round. The visited Birmingham and despite going down on 2 occasions the team managed to avoid defeat finishing the game in a 2-2 result.
The Canaries have decent and ambitious squad. Farke looked to be finally improving the result and way of play of his team and it will be interesting to see whether he can carry this into the season.
West Brom won’t be happy with their start of the campaign. A late defeat to Bolton at home followed by a 1-1 draw against Nottingham is not the start their fans hoped for. The draw against Nottingham came rather late into the game as Albion managed to equalize just 3 minutes before the end.
Still West Brom continues their ambition to return to the Premier League this season. The squad has decent amount of quality but so far looks extremely disappointing.
