Norwich City v Brighton & Hove Albion live stream, Saturday, 16 October, 3pm BST
Brighton will be looking to continue their fine start to the Premier League season when they travel to Norwich on Saturday.
The Seagulls sit sixth heading into the weekend’s action and are level on points with Manchester City up in third. Having impressed last season without always getting the results their performances deserved, Brighton will feel they are not in a false position.
Only City and Liverpool have better defensive record after six rounds of fixtures, and the way they took the game to Arsenal before the international break showed how well coached Graham Potter’s team is. Brighton, not the Gunners, played like the big-six side in that math.
However, scoring goals was a particular problem in 2020/21 and there are signs that it could be an issue again. Albion have found the net just eight times so far – the same amount as Newcastle down in 19th place. This time around they are not underperforming their xG either, which suggests chance creation is more of a problem than conversion. It is something Potter will be keeping an eye on even though it has not overly affected his side up to now.
Norwich finally picked up their first point of the season last time out, holding Burnley to a goalless draw at Turf Moor. It was certainly not a classic encounter, as its position as the last fixture on Match of the Day testifies, but Daniel Farke will have been pleased to have finally got off the mark.
However, Norwich need to pick up a win as soon as possible to give themselves hope for the struggle that lies ahead. The longer they go without a victory, the harder it will be to pull themselves out of trouble. Brighton are a good team but the Canaries should view this as a fixture they are capable of winning, particularly at Carrow Road.
Kick-off is at 3pm BST on Saturday, 16 October.

Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch Steve Bruce’s extra-red face without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps
A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.
Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price
It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
