Arnaut Danjuma’s first-half strike condemned Norwich City to their first loss of the season - and our Canaries correspondents were at Dean Court to keep you up to date with all the action.

The winger turned and hit his driven effort into the net. Jason Tindall’s men march up the table and remain unbeaten despite a very positive performance in the second period from City.

Daniel Farke’s men have begun life back in the second-tier with a 1-0 victory away to Huddersfield Town and a 2-2 draw with former City boss Alex Neil’s Preston North End.

Today, they face a Cherries side also hoping to hold a place at the top end of the table following relegation from the Premier League - with Eddie Howe’s former assistant manager Tindall now at the helm.

Tindall has started life in the hotseat with an unbeaten start, Bournemouth claimed a 3-2 victory over Blackburn Rovers on the opening day of the season before drawing 1-1 with Middlesbrough last weekend.

The two sides last met in January in the Premier League - with City claiming a 1-0 victory at Carrow Road courtesy of a Teemu Pukki penalty.
