Norwich City’s defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers leaves them seven points from safety with 11 top-flight fixtures remaining.












Supporters have had their say on social media following the defeat, with the majority feeling deflated after another dispiriting defeat.

On very few occasions this season have City been comfortably second-best, but Wolves outclassed the Canaries from the off.

Portuguese forward Diego Jota proved influential and he netted the opening goal after being found in the box by Matt Doherty's pass. He beat Max Aarons before ruthlessly dispatching the ball into the net.

He had another soon after, when Raul Jimenez' flicked header found Romain Saiss after a short corner. The Frenchman delivered a teasing cross which Jota tapped in at the back post.

City were toothless and lacked cutting edge in their approach. Wolves had a third shortly after the interval, when Jimenez tapped in after Jota's effort rebounded off the post.
