The Canaries were unbeaten throughout their eight-game pre-season programme – and kicked off their EFL Championship campaign with a decent 1-1 draw at highly fancied Fulham.

Following their cup clash, City welcome relegated Sunderland to Carrow Road on Sunday lunchtime (1.30pm) for City’s opening home league game of the campaign.
