It was a clash of the Premier League’s bottom two at Carrow Road this evening – and our reporters were there to bring you all the updates, analysis and reaction from Norwich City’s 2-0 loss to Watford.
Both teams go into the game (8pm kick-off) desperately in need of a win, with the Canaries having lost five of their last six matches following a 2-0 defeat at Brighton Saturday.
Watford however haven't won a league game yet this season, losing 2-1 to Chelsea at home last weekend to leave them bottom with five points from 11 games, two points adrift of City.
The Hornets are in their fifth consecutive campaign in the top flight, finishing 11th and reaching the FA Cup final last season. That Wembley date proved a nightmare however, getting thrashed 6-0 by Manchester City.
A poor end to that season means Watford have won just one of their last 17 Premier League games, which was a 2-1 win at relegation destined Huddersfield in April - losing nine of those games.
That form saw Javi Gracia sacked in early September and brought Quique Sanchez Flores back to Vicaragae Road for a second stint as manager, drawing with Arsenal, Sheffield United, Tottenham and Bournemouth during his seven league games so far.
