Norwich City failed to secure a win after missing easy chances in one of the boring football scores of the weekend in the Premier League. Brighton could feel hard done when they were denied a penalty in the first half after Neil Maupay was brought down in the penalty area. Krul made a crucial fingertip save not long after when he tipped a Leandro Trossard shot onto the post.

Subs used: Lamptey (6), March (6), Mac Allister (N/A)
Player of the match: Pierre Lees-Melou (Norwich)
Norwich boss, Daniel Farke: “We ticked many boxes today. We wanted to get off the mark at home, we wanted a second game unbeaten in a row, we wanted a second clean sheet in a row, we wanted to take points in a home game and create more chances than we did in the Burnley game and these boxes were all ticked.”
Brighton boss Graham Potter: “In the final third we struggled a little bit. The decision-making wasn’t as good as it can be. It was a tricky game against a back five, Norwich fighting for their points. We have to focus on the one point we did get, the clean sheet. We did some things well but not well enough to get the three points.”
