  • Norwich survive a second-half fightback from Swansea to record their first away victory of the season in the Premier League in a thrilling contest which extends their unbeaten run to nine games in the top flight. Stay with us for all the post-match reaction.


    90 + 3
  • A Shechter header loops just over the crossbar amid the late drama. Swansea are now reverting to long balls but Johnson is very calm to head back to Bunn.

    90 + 3
  • De Guzman's initial corner is cleared but his follow-up cross is perfection and Michu heads in at the back post. Is there enough time for Swansea to find one more chance?

  • GOAL MICHU (3-4)!!!

  • Swansea are not finished yet. Garrido concedes a corner and, at the set-piece, Norwich replaced Whittaker with Barnett.

    90 + 1
  • ADDED TIME: There will be a minimum of three minutes added time before the final whistle.

  • Rangel goes in the book for dissent after referee Webb adjudged him to have fouled Pilkington close to the touchline.

  • Snodgrass has been very good today. He will be my man of the match. His set-pieces helped set up goals in the first half before he scored with his second-half free-kick.

  • Centre-back Chico carries the ball forward and sends a dipping 30-yarder swerving just over the crossbar. Bunn looked comfortable and confident the effort was always going over the top.

  • More brave defending from Bassong as he throws himself in the way of another shot. This time the effort is from substitute Shechter.

  • Swansea's fans have gone a bit flat from the earlier boost of the potential comeback. Another goal would make it very interesting. The game is still very open. Dyer's shot clatters into Bassong.

  • This has been a thrilling game and the drama is not over yet. Some lovely one-touch combination play see Dyer play in Michu in the box. Michu swivels on to his left foot but drags his shot agonisingly wide of the base of the far post.

  • Norwich make a late change. Morison is on in place of Holt.

  • But Swansea have not given up. De Guzman curls a pass to the far post and Michu cannot quiet keep the ball in play. He kicks the ball away in frustration.

  • The corner goes short and is then crossed to the far post by Garrido. But Swansea are first to the ball and head clear.

  • Norwich are now really taking their time over goal-kicks and throw-ins but are looking increasingly dangerous on counter-attacks. They win a corner on the right.

  • That goal has deflated Swansea. For all their efforts in the second half, it looks like they ate going to pay the price for mistakes from set-pieces.

  • Are Norwich home and dry now? Swansea out to 10/1 to salvage a draw and 40/1 to snatch a win.

  • That could be game over for Swansea. It is an excellent goal from Snodgrass, whose set-pieces have been brilliant. From 25 yards from goal, he curls over the wall and beyond the reach of Tremmel to bend the ball just inside the post.
