This will be the first ever top-flight meeting between Brentford and Norwich City. The Canaries are unbeaten in their last five league meetings with the Bees.

Norwich are winless in their last 25 Premier League away matches in London (D6 L19), with only Derby County (26 between 1999 and 2008) and Fulham (36 between 2003 and 2011) having longer such runs. In fact, the Canaries have lost their last 11 in the capital, the longest run of defeats since Sunderland lost 14 in a row between 2002 and 2008.

Only Chelsea (15) and Manchester City (11) have had more different goalscorers in the Premier League than Brentford this season, with nine of the Bees’ 12 goals coming from different players (excluding own goals).

Excluding matches played on the opening weekend of the season, this is Norwich’s 40th consecutive Premier League match in the relegation zone, equalling Swindon’s record in the competition set in the 1993/94 season.
