    FT: Norwich City 3-1 Newcastle

    A comprehensive win for Norwich gets their Premier League season up and running.

    More worrying for Newcastle though who have to travel to Tottenham next week.

    Keep up-to-date with the rest of Saturday's action over here.

    Norwich City 3-1 Newcastle

    A consolation but Newcastle at least have their first goal of the new season.

    Sean Longstaff pierces the Norwich defence with a clever pass to Jonjo Shelvey who shows clever sleight of foot to step inside Grant Hanley and bend into the far corner.

    Thunderous challenge from Sean Longstaff on Moritz Leitner as he cleans out the Norwich midfielder.

    He touches the ball but seems to loses his balance and picks up a booking.

    Slight dampener for Norwich fans.

    Max Aarons limps off and is replaced by summer signing Sam Byram.

    Norwich City 3-0 Newcastle

    Teemu Pukki is the first Norwich player to score a Premier League hat-trick since Efan Ekoku in January 1993.

    The Canaries have waited a long time for a new striking hero.

    Alex Tettey, one of only two players who survive from Norwich's last Premier League campaign, trots on to replace Tom Trybull.

    Paul Dummett picks up a booking for scything down Emi Buendia.

    Norwich break and win a corner but Ben Godfrey's header drops wide.

    Marco Steipermann has finished his job for today. Mario Vrancic has come on to replace him.

    Norwich City 3-0 Newcastle

    It's Marco Steipermann's turn to test the Newcastle defence.

    Again he's got in behind the midfield and finds space for a shot.

    This one though is straight down Martin Dubravka's throat.

  10. GOAL - Teemu Pukki

    Norwich City 3-0 Newcastle

    That'll surely be the three points for Norwich.

    They punish Newcastle for leaving gaps as Todd Cantwell again springs at their defence.

    Teemu Pukki takes over, rolls Matt Ritchie and slots a composed finish past Martin Dubravka to secure his hat-trick.

    What a start for the striker!

    Sean Longstaff is on for Ki Sung-Yeung.

    Can he wrestle some control for Newcastle in midfield?

    Norwich City 2-0 Newcastle

    Delightful one-two between Emi Buendia and Todd Cantwell gives the Argentinian a sight of goal but Fabian Schar gets in a vital challenge.

    More bad news for Newcastle.

    Joelinton has been clutching his back since falling awkwardly in a challenge with Grant Hanley a few minutes ago and he's now unable to continue.

    He limps off and Yoshinori Muto replaces him.

  14. GOAL - Teemu Pukki

    Norwich City 2-0 Newcastle

    Teemu Pukki scores a second goal for Norwich

    Just as Newcastle look like they're getting back into the game, Teemu Pukki punishes them again.

    This time it's Todd Cantwell who drives into acres of space between Newcastle's midfield and defence before picking out Pukki.

    He has plenty of time to steady himself and then skewers his shot through the narrowest of gaps and in at Martin Dubravka's near post. Clinical.


    Norwich City 1-0 Newcastle

    That's the best we've seen from Tim Krul so far.

    Newcastle corner comes in from the left, it's met fiercely at the near post and Krul turns it aside spectacularly.

    Norwich City 1-0 Newcastle

    Finally there's a midfielder breaking through the lines for Newcastle.

    Matt Ritchie and Jonjo Shelvey combine nicely to get Shelvey into the box but Tim Krul kicks his cross away.

  17. Post update

    Norwich City 1-0 Newcastle

    Newcastle started the second half well but it's reverted back to the first half pattern now, Norwich buzzing with threat and menace while their visitors struggle to keep possession.

    Little by way of goalmouth action though yet.

  18. Post update

    Norwich City 1-0 Newcastle

    Matt Ritchie is finding some space for Newcastle and with his left foot that bodes well for the visitors.

    He's swung in a series of menacing crosses already in this second half but they've not been able to test Tim Krul yet.

  19. Post update

    Norwich City 1-0 Newcastle

    The ball bounces around awkwardly in the Norwich box but neither Matt Ritchie nor Isaac Hayden can make clean connections with attempted volleys.

    It drifts harmlessly wide for a goal kick.
