Norwich 4-2 Watford


Sunderland beat Everton 3-0 and it's curtains for the Canaries. Newcastle gone too along with Aston Villa.

Thanks for joining me.


Norwich 4-2 Watford

All over at Carrow Road, Norwich thump Watford, but is it enough to keep them in the Premier League?

Norwich 4-2 Watford

Gary O'Neil scuffs the free-kick into the wall.

Norwich 4-2 Watford

Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe is brought down on the edge of the box by Craig Cathcart.

A fifth??

Norwich 4-2 Watford

John Ruddy collects Troy Deeney's deflected strike at the second attempt. It nearly crept in.

Norwich 4-2 Watford

Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe smashes a shot over the crossbar for Norwich.

Not long left to play...

Norwich 4-2 Watford

Into added time...

Norwich 4-2 Watford

Smash, have that.

Norwich skipper Russell Martin does not care.

With Almen Abdi going round him with the ball, Martin resorts to kicking down the Swiss midfielder.

Let's not talk too much about Adlene Guedioura's free-kick, flying high into the stand. Terrible.

Norwich 4-2 Watford

Three to go.

Enjoy these three minutes, Norwich fans. You're officially still in the Premier League...for now.


Norwich 4-2 Watford

Now Norwich's Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe is booked, having only just come on.

It's turning into a bit of a dirty scrap, this.


Norwich 4-2 Watford

Only a yellow card, but this should have been a red.

Watford's Nathan Ake with a reckless sliding challenge on Dieumerci Mbokani, nowhere near the ball, catching the Norwich striker on top of the foot.

A very painful one and Ake lucky to still be on the field.


Norwich 4-2 Watford

Steven Naismith off, Vadis Odjidja-Ofoe on. Easy for you to say.

Norwich 4-2 Watford

A look at the big Norwich clock situated on one of the stands.

Their Premier League time is slowly ticking away.

10 to play.


Norwich 4-2 Watford

A rousing round of applause for Nathan Redmond, who has been the star player today.

He comes off for a deserved rest and Matt Jarvis comes on.

Norwich 4-2 Watford

Miguel Britos is a lucky boy.

He tangles with Steven Naismith inside the box as the Scot was running onto a through ball.

Referee Roger East waves the appeals away with an emphatic "NO!"

Could easily have been given.

Norwich 4-2 Watford

The linesman looks like he's hurt his finger.

Ref Roger East runs across to see if his mate is OK.



Norwich 4-2 Watford

Wes Hoolahan won't get his goal for Norwich today, he comes off and Robbie Brady comes on.

Watford also shake it up, Ben Watson is replaced by Adlene Guedioura

Norwich 4-2 Watford

A lack of goal action in the last few minutes. We have seen six goals, it's a little greedy to be asking for more.

Disappointed that QSF hasn't given a few bodies a run out for Watford tonight given we've nothing to play for - Berghuis deserves a start for one.

Saul in Aberdeen

Norwich 4-2 Watford

Norwich boss Alex Neil continues to give instructions to his players. He has done a superb job since taking over the club, so the board won't take the decision to sack him in the summer, will they...?

Sunderland 3-0 Everton

A reminder of the scoreline from the Stadium of Light.

Sunderland lead which means Norwich and Newcastle are going down.

Norwich 4-2 Watford

Wes Hoolahan has had a good game for Norwich and wants to get on the scoresheet.

He makes a driving run from the middle of the park, as the Watford defence parts like the Red Sea, but the Republic of Ireland man's shot from the edge of the area is wayward and does not trouble Heurelho Gomes.

Norwich 4-2 Watford

Watford's Almen Abdi lets fly from outside the box but his strike is off target.

Nathan Ake has come on for Cameroon international Allan Nyom.

GOAL - Norwich 4-2 Watford

Dieumerci Mbokani (56 mins)

Norwich going down fighting.

A lovely, lovely goal and it's Norwich's two best players who combine.

Nathan Redmond with a silky turn to put Dieumerci Mbokani through on goal and he is as cool as a cucumber, waiting for Heurelho Gomes to go down before dinking the ball over him and into the net.

As mentioned, this result does not matter.

Sunderland lead Everton 3-0 which means the Canaries cannot catch them.

Dieumerci Mbokani

Sunderland 3-0 Everton

Sunderland have scored a a third and it's goodbye to the Premier League for Norwich.


Norwich 3-2 Watford

Juan Jurado hooked, Steven Berghuis comes on. Been a while since I've seen a player with more gel in his hair than Marouane Chamakh.

GOAL - Norwich 3-2 Watford

Odion Ighalo (51 mins)

Goals galore.

Norwich had not woken up after half-time and pay the price.

Skipper Troy Deeney shows his imposing presence by holding off a Norwich defender, before cutting the ball back into the box.

Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo - 12 games without finding the net - finally breaks his duck, lashing home a finish to drag Watford back into the game.

Odion Ighako

Norwich 3-1 Watford

Question marks over Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores's future at the club - which is ridiculous because they've had a very good season - but their recent form and this performance won't make that chat go away.

#WatfordFC have nothing to play for and QSF leaving in the summer anyway. No surprise players minds are already on holidays. #bbcfootball


Norwich 3-1 Watford

Back under way at Carrow Road.

"You're going down lads, but keep it going," will have been the team talk from Norwich boss Alex Neil.

Norwich 3-1 Watford

Watford fans, what have you made of your side's performance so far?

Hit me up on #bbcfootball

Be nice.

Norwich 3-1 Watford

Remember, it matters not what Norwich do here. As is stands, they are getting relegated to the Championship as Sunderland are currently lead 2-0 against Everton.

Canaries fans at Carrow Road are checking the scores on their phones and you can see from their faces it's not good news.


Norwich 3-1 Watford

Maybe the best Premier League half of the whole season comes to an end and it's Norwich who lead.

Norwich 3-1 Watford

Nathan Redmond has scored once and hit the post twice today but he's unhappy following a industrial challenge by Allan Nyom.

The pair square up off the pitch and one-on-one, Redmond is brave. I wouldn't fancy the little man's chances in a brawl between the two players.

Ref Roger East steps in to end the bout.


Norwich 3-1 Watford

All eyes on the Stadium of Light now to see if Everton can launch a recovery.

Meanwhile, Norwich almost get a fourth, but Heurelho Gomes stoops to save Steven Naismith's strike.

Seconds later, Gomes is called into action once again, this time palming away Wes Hoolahan's left-footed shot from the edge of the area.

Sunderland 2-0 Everton

Oh no, Norwich fans. Oh no, look away now.

Sunderland defender Lamine Kone smashes in a volley and the Black Cats double their lead.

As it stands, Norwich and Newcastle both getting relegated.

Sunderland 1-0 Everton


Patrick van Aanholt nets a free-kick for the Black Cats, which means it's bad news for Norwich who are going down to the Championship.

The Canaries can score 10 tonight, it still won't keep them up.

Norwich 3-1 Watford

But hold on...

GOAL - Norwich 3-1 Watford

Craig Cathcart own goal (37 mins)

Watford are a joke.

From skied clearances to falling over to scoring an own goal, Quique Sanchez Flores's side have been a laughing stock in this match.

Allan Nyom can't keep his feet as the ball comes across him and Wes Hoolahan collects.

The Republic of Ireland man drills a ball across the box which Craig Cathcart attempts to clear, but can only slide the ball into his own net.

Norwich comfortable and are staying up.

Wes Hoolahan

Norwich 2-1 Watford

Watford haven't seen the opposition area since scoring, it's been all Norwich.

To be fair, that's because the Hornets are a circus at the back. Mario Suarez - again - attempts a clearance which is successful in only going skywards. 

The ball goes into the arms of Heurelho Gomes though.
