The first half of this match was all Norwich with the Canaries scoring three goals and going into the half time break 3 – 0. In the second half Swansea started out strong and began a comeback. With Swansea pushing so hard Norwich was forced to play much more defensively. Despite this Norwich was able to get a fourth goal thanks to Robert Snodgrass.
Swansea did not let up, but giving up that fourth goal was a huge mistake as Michu netted his second in stoppage time. I had picked Swansea to win this, and if they hadn’t given up so many goals in the first half they could have. However, Norwich fully deserved all three points in this one.
