  2. Post update

    Norwich 1-1 Stoke

    Joselu blazes a golden opportunity from close range miles over the Norwich bar. Stoke's only chance of the half, and they've wasted it.


    Norwich 1-1 Stoke

    Butland to the rescue again, he denies Dorrans for the second time with a save low to his left to touch away a shot from 25 yards. Seconds later he blocks Cameron Jerome's overhead kick with his upper arm at point-blank range.


    Norwich 1-1 Stoke

    Stoke have been very disjointed since the break, but a rare attack is stopped abruptly when Steven Whittaker pulls Diouf's shirt as the striker moves past him. Classic professional foul.

    Bradley Johnson replaces Wes Hoolahan as Alex Neil seeks a late winner.

  6. Post update

    Norwich 1-1 Stoke

    Ooof! Bassong and Martin collide heavily as they converge on a high ball. Bassong gets the worst of it, but impressively he gives his chest a quick rub and carries on regardless.

  7. Post update

    Norwich 1-1 Stoke

    Diouf tries an overhead kick as the ball sits up invitingly. It comes to nothing as Norwich scramble it away, and within seconds we get the second water break of the day. No boos this time - and Norwich scored just after the first one of course...

    NorwichCityOK: Whatever the result it gives me hope that Norwich are scoring every game!

    lfcway: Messi might not be able to do it on a wet windy night at Stoke, but looks like Shaqiri will. Stoke have signed a top player.

    Peter, Portadown: My mate had Courtois first week and Adrian second week in his fantasy team - both sent off. He has Butland this week... bad omen for Stoke?

    Norwich 1-1 Stoke

    Stephen Ireland and Joselu are on for Afellay and Arnautovic. The former Man City midfielder was a game-changer last week at Spurs, can he inspire something similar today?

  12. Post update

    Norwich 1-1 Stoke

    Xherdan Shaquiri

    Signs of life from Stoke at last as Johnson tries to dance through the middle of the defence. Shaqiri is then close to a spectacular first Stoke goal, going just wide with a curling shot from an angle.

  13. Post update

    Norwich 1-1 Stoke

    Yellow and green shirts are flooding forward, Norwich are playing like a side who had the proverbial half-time 'rollicking' - whatever one of those actually is.


    Norwich 1-1 Stoke

    Norwich 1-1 Stoke

    Opta Joe: 10 - Nathan Redmond has had a hand in 10 goals in his last eight league appearances for Norwich City (five goals, five assists). Decadent.

    Norwich 1-1 Stoke

    The teams head in for a breather after an entertaining first half. Stoke have just about shaded it, but Norwich have hung in and made the most of just about the only chance they had.


    Norwich 1-1 Stoke

    Russell Martin goes into the book for throwing his elbow at the ball as Stoke clear an attack from Norwich.

  22. Post update

  25. Post update

    Norwich 1-1 Stoke

    Robbie Brady, without a goal for two years, is a yard away from breaking his drought as he curls a free-kick wide of Butland's left-hand post.

  26. Post update

    Norwich 1-1 Stoke

    Kevin Kilbane

    BBC Radio 5 live

    "For Norwich's first game against Palace, it was almost as if they'd said: 'We are back in the Premier League now, let's be a bit more defensive'. But they've come back at Stoke hard now and will create chances with the players they've got. They went at teams last season - that's how they got promoted."

  27. Post update

    Norwich 1-1 Stoke

    Xherdan Shaqiri

    Despite having yellow and green shirts swarming around him at all times, Shaqiri keeps finding space. He eludes three defenders to thread the ball to Glen Johnson, but the ex-Liverpool defender is just offside.


    Norwich 1-1 Stoke

    John Ruddy gets away with one. The Norwich keeper's clearance goes straight to a Stoke shirt, but thankfully for Ruddy, Diouf is miles offside as he collects the return and slides the ball home.

  29. Post update

    Norwich 1-1 Stoke

    Alex Tettey clatters Shaqiri in the centre circle with a foul that looks like one borne of frustration after a fine opening spell from the Stoke record signing.

  30. GOAL - Norwich 1-1 Stoke

    Russell Martin

    GOAL! Russell Martin had just seen Butland pull off a fine save from a header, but seconds later he latched on to a through ball from Nathan Redmond and shot through Butland's legs.

    Was it something manager Alex Neil said in the drinks break?

    Mark Hughes
  31. Post update

    Norwich 0-1 Stoke

    Alex Tettey chances his arm from distance but his effort flies harmlessly wide. Referee Mike Dean calls for a water break, giving everyone a chance to gather themselves on a roasting day in Norfolk. It's not gone down too well on the terraces, with some boos ringing out.

  32. Post update

    Norwich 0-1 Stoke

    Shaqiri does his defensive duties this time, tracking Brady back to the edge of his own area and frustrating the Norwich player so much that he fouls his Swiss opponent.

    Mame Biram Diouf

    Opta Joe: 4 - Mame Biram Diouf has scored four times in his last four Premier League appearances. Glance.

  34. Post update

    Norwich 0-1 Stoke

    Excellent work from Jack Butland, who races to the edge of the box to dive at the feet of Steven Whittaker, who had sprinted clear for Norwich's first moment of real threat.

  35. Post update

    Norwich 0-1 Stoke

    And there I was about to say that Shaqiri had barely featured as yet. It was a fine delivery, but Norwich's defence was caught napping.

    Kevin Kilbane

    Final Score

    Xherdan Shaqiri

    "It's a brilliant ball in from Xherdan Shaqiri - there is so much pace on it that the Norwich defence just cannot cope. It looks a simple header for Mame Biram Diouf but that goal is all about the quality of the delivery."

  37. GOAL - Norwich 0-1 Stoke

    Mame Biram Diouf

    GOAL! Xherdan Shaqiri makes an almost immediate impact, swinging in a free-kick from the right that skims over the defence, allowing Mame Biram Diouf to stoop in and nod home from the six-yard line.

  38. Post update

    Norwich 0-0 Stoke

    Brady swings in the first corner of the match, but it doesn't even get as far as the near post before the home defence clear it easily.

  39. Post update

    Norwich 0-0 Stoke

    The game is being played at walking pace, but Robbie Brady breaks the shackles with a quick run down the left that Geoff Cameron ends with a clattering, clumsy foul.

  40. Post update

    Norwich 0-0 Stoke

    Alex Neil

    Maybe it's the heat, but it's been a subdued start. Stoke have had most of the ball, but their new attacking line-up has yet to make an early impression.

  41. KICK-OFF

    And we're under way, with the hosts kicking off.

  42. Post update

    Norwich v Stoke

    Carrow Road pays tribute with a minute's applause for former Canaries keeper Sandy Kennon, who passed away earlier this week aged 81. He played 255 times for the club, and was part of the side that reached the FA Cup semi-final in 1959.

    The teams are out, and it's handshake time as we approach kick-off.

    The teams are back in the cool of the dressing rooms, leaving a rapidly-filling up Carrow Road to sizzle in the late summer sun.

  45. Post update

    Norwich v Stoke

    Xherdan Shaqiri

    Potters boss Mark Hughes has been waxing lyrical about new boy Shaqiri to BBC Sport.

    "We've seen his quality, he's not disappointed in training and we hope he reproduces what he is capable of in a Stoke shirt."

  46. Phew! It's a scorcher!

    Norwich v Stoke

    Martin Fisher

    Match of the Day commentator

    "Like Stoke, Norwich got their season off and running a week ago, capitalising on Sunderland's shortcomings impressively to earn a 3-1 win at the Stadium of Light.

    "They have been brilliant on the road since Alex Neil was appointed in January but he will appreciate that their survival chances need regular success at home. This fixture surely sits in the box marked 'winnable'."

  49. Post update

    Norwich v Stoke

    Xherdan Shaqiri, Stoke's £12m record signing from Inter Milan, is finally unleashed today. The Swiss international makes his debut after serving the final match of a ban imposed while he was still in Italy.

    He's Stoke's only change to the side that held Spurs 2-2. Norwich are unchanged from the XI that beat Sunderland.

    Norwich XI: Ruddy; Whittaker, Martin (c), Bassong, Brady; Redmond, Tettey, Dorrans, Howson; Hoolahan; Jerome.

    Subs: Rudd (GK), Wisdom, Johnson, Grabban, Hooper, R Bennett, O'Neil.

    Norwich team v Stoke

    Stoke XI: Butland; Johnson, Cameron, Muniesa, Pieters; Whelan, van Ginkel; Shaqiri, Afellay, Arnautovic; Diouf.

    It's perfect if you've ever thought you can read the runes better than pundits like Alan Shearer and Mark Lawrenson.

  52. Post update

    Norwich v Stoke

    Both sides will be keen to build on the encouraging signs gleaned from their first points of the season last weekend.

    Norwich stunned Sunderland with a flurry of blows for a 3-1 win, while Stoke climbed off the canvas to grab a deserved 2-2 at Spurs.

    Can either land a knockout punch today? You're in the right place to find out.
