This Sunday’s match versus Arsenal is likely to be Norwich’s City’s final game in the Premier League - for the time being at least.

Over three seasons the club have played 113 games, winning 30 of them, drawing 34 and losing 49. They finished 12th and 11th in the first two seasons - with this year’s final position still to be determined.

It’s fair to say highlights during this period were few and far between - but there were some.

Here NCFC columnist David Powles picks three of his own...

GRANT HOLT’S GOAL VERSUS LIVERPOOL IN 1-1 DRAW

On October 22, 2011 Holt came off the bench to secure a dramatic equaliser in front of the famous Kop at Anfield.

The image of him jumping ahead of goalkeeper Pepe Reina and defender Jamie Carragher remains my favourite picture of the three years in the Premier League.

This was an all too rare away day highlight for long-suffering fans who ttravel far and wide to watch the Canaries play.

THE 1-0 VICTORY AT HOME TO MANCHESTER UNITED

The famous 10-game unbeaten run during Chris Hughton’s first season at the helm of the club was just about as good as it got under the now despatched manager.

A highlight of that was a battling 1-0 victory at Carrow Road on November 17, 2012 in front of the television cameras. Winger Anthony Pilkington stole in to secure the winning goal with yet another brilliant header.

Manchester City 2 Norwich City 3

Free from the fear of relegation Norwich play with the sort of attacking abandon they rarely were able to replicate when it really mattered.

Yes the game meant little in terms of trophies and relegation, but it put Norwich in to 11th place - their best ever finish in the Premier League.

For a brief time it pointed to a happier, more attacking future. We know now that future never transpired.
