Swansea vs Norwich preview: Canaries seek first win in nine

A look ahead to the Premier League fixture at the Liberty Stadium

It’s a big game for…

Nathan Redmond: The young English winger has been one of the few bright spots for Norwich of late and has become a real fan favourite at Carrow Road. Redmond will celebrate his 22nd birthday on Sunday and there is a sense that the former Birmingham man is beginning to come of age. With only one win so far in 2016 Norwich are in desperate need of a spark if they are to avoid the drop and Redmond may just be the man to provide it

Best stat...

15- There have been a remarkable 15 goals scored in the last 3 meetings between these sides at the Liberty Stadium.

Remember when…

A Grant Holt inspired Norwich team held out for a 3-4 win over Swansea despite a ferocious second half comeback from the home side. This end-to-end thriller from back in 2012 extended the canaries’ unbeaten run to a club record 9 games in the Premier League.

Player to watch…

Lukasz Fabianski- The Swansea keeper has been in fine form of late, keeping a frustrated Tottenham team at bay for 70 minutes at White Hart Lane before producing some inspired first-half saves to help earn his side all three points at The Emirates on Wednesday night. Norwich City enter this weekend’s fixture having only scored 1 goal in their last 5 fixtures away from home, with Fabianski in his current form, it could be another long afternoon for the canaries.
