Norwich City 0 Brighton & Hove Albion 0

Albion’s second consecutive scoreless draw sees them edge into fourth place in the Premier League table

Adam Lallana and Leandro Trossard both drew good saves from Tim Krul, the former Seagull in the Norwich goal.

Shane Duffy had another good chance from a corner but, like he did against Arsenal, he planted it wide.

However, Duffy did redeem himself as a rare error from Robert Sanchez gifted Josh Sargent with an effort on goal that Duffy cleared off the line.

Albion were aggrieved not to be awarded a penalty after Krul appeared to have tripped Neal Maupay.

Norwich came back into it in the second half with Teemu Pukki and Pierre Lees-Melou both going close.

Sargent also had another effort that was well cut out by a combination of Lewis Dunk and Sanchez.

Dan Burn also denied Pukki as Norwich counter-attacked after Pascal Gross had a shot blocked after a good centre from Lallana.

Albion’s last chance came from some great work from substitute Solly March who sent in a cross that saw Maupay fire over.

Albion were fourth in the Premier League at 5pm and take on Manchester City at the Amex next Saturday (23 October).
