Norwich City search for their first goal and first points since the Premier League season resumed when they host Brighton this lunchtime - and our reporters will be at Carrow Road to bring you all the updates, analysis and reaction.

The Canaries have lost all four of their matches since the campaign restarted last month, with their only goal coming in last Saturday’s cruel 2-1 defeat to Manchester United in extra-time in the FA Cup quarter-finals last Saturday.

That was a third successive game behind closed doors at Carrow Road, following on from a 3-0 defeat to Southampton and a 1-0 loss to Everton in the league.

Daniel Farke’s team then slumped to a calamitous 4-0 loss at Arsenal on Wednesday night, leaving them seven points from safety with six games remaining.

City’s final chance now comes with three games in a row against survival rivals, although Brighton are out of reach as they are 12 points better off, but still only six points clear of the relegation zone.

You may also want to watch:

A trip to Watford on Tuesday is followed by a home game against West Ham on Saturday and anything less than six points from those three games will leave Norwich waiting for the fate to be confirmed.

Brighton beat Arsenal 2-1 and drew 1-1 at Leicester since the season restarted, but were beaten 3-0 at home by Manchester United on Tuesday.
