Norwich City’s long long wait for a Premier League win has finally ended this weekend as Daniel Farke’s side picked up a 2-1 win away at Brentford.

The newly promoted pair have enjoyed dramatically different starts to the campaign but on a decisive afternoon, it was a determined Norwich that eventually squeezed out the result against Brentford.

Despite their struggles at both ends this season, Norwich settled into their rhythm well in the opening stages, as Matias Normann weaved through to slot them in front.

And with the stung Bees offering little before the break, Canaries talisman Teemu Pukki took his chance, as the Finnish star tucked home a second goal from the penalty spot.

However, despite their two-goal advantage at half time, Norwich completely eased off the gas in the second period as Tim Krul superbly kept out Christian Norgaard.

And with all the traffic heading in one direction late on, Brentford did haul themselves back into it as Rico Henry cushioned home Sam Ghoddos’ cross.

But despite hanging on in the final minutes Krul reacted again and again to seal the win.
