The new standard gave Norwich City the same old issues, which created nothing to suggest that they could be anything but doomed to relegation. A home meeting with Southampton has been seen as one of their run-in ‘s critical games, a chance to prove that there is hope yet. Instead, it has turned into a brutal reminder of why they are six safety points.
As for all teams in this resumed campaign, there are comprehensible explanations why Norwich is below their peak. The absence of supporters can’t help, although the summer heat won’t suit their pressing pressure. But, when they have been ripped apart again and again in the second half, the simpler response has been that they are simply not good enough.
Norwich’s match against Southampton opened the English Premier League ‘s 30th round. It was a battle between two teams from the bottom of the table and Norwich could not catch one of the last trains to enter the survival struggle in it.
Norwich lost 3-0 on their Carrow Road, and the second half saw all three goals. Southampton took the lead with Ings in the 49th minute and Armstrong was assisted five minutes later by the same player for a 2-0 lead.
Redmond resolved all the dilemmas over the winner in the duel tonight, scoring the third goal for, as it turns out, the final 3: 0.
After this loss, Norwich remained convincingly last. Southampton is a little bit better, now in the 13th position.
