Norwich City returned to Carrow Road on Saturday, with Daniel Farke leading a first-team training session on the pitch.

City’s last outing in NR1 was a 1-0 victory against Leicester City at the end of February, with Jamal Lewis’ second half strike proving to be the difference.

The Canaries official channels released a photo gallery that showed City’s first-team squad returning to the pitch - with some players sporting some questionable haircuts.

Preparations for the Premier League’s restart later this month have ramped up, with the latest round of coronavirus testing failing to record a single case of Covid-19.

City’s first fixture will take place at Carrow Road against Southampton on Friday, June 19. The Canaries first three games will be played at home - including their FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester United.

Other teams have also returned to their home venues to prepare for football behind closed doors, with Arsenal beating Charlton Athletic 6-0 in a friendly fixture at the Emirates.

City’s social media channels also posted a video of Emi Buendia scoring in a intra-squad practice match alongside photos that included Timm Klose, Onel Hernandez and Mo Leitner.
