Norwich City slipped to their fourth successive away defeat in the Premier League this season, with a 2-0 defeat at Crystal Palace this afternoon – and our reporters were there to bring you updates on all the action.

Goalkeeper Tim Krul and midfielder Alex Tettey have joined the Canaries' lengthy injury list ahead of the Selhurst Park encounter, thankfully both only with short-term issues.

Norwich are looking to end a long wait for an away victory against Palace, stretching back to May 1996, when an own goal from David Hopkin handed City a 1-0 win in Division One.

In 15 attempts since that win Norwich have only draw five and have conceded 31 in the process, losing their last attempt 1-0 to dent Premier League survival hopes in April 2016 - when Timm Klose suffered a season-ending knee injury.

They did win at Selhurst Park in August 2001 though, when Wimbledon were playing at the stadium, thanks to a late Marc Libbra winner.
