Norwich City paid an eye-catching tribute to a former Canaries and Seagulls striker as the clubs met.

A huge banner celebrating Justin Fashanu - and in the colours of the rainbow flag - was placed across seats behind one goal.

Fashanu was a poweful and talented goal-getter who came out as the first professional footballer to be openly gay. He committed suicide in 1998.

He is perhaps best remembered for a goal he scored for Norwich against Liverpool at Carrow Road in 1980, at the same end as Leandro Trossard netted his winner today.


Graham Potter pointed out ahead of the match that a win would put Albion on 36 points, equalling their tally of last season with five games still to play.

They duly pulled that off.

This result also saw them match last term’s final totals of 36 goals scored and three away wins.

They have matched the two home-and-away doubles they managed in each of their two previous Prem seasons.

There is no chance of adding a third.


Did memories come flooding back when Adam Idah’s stoppage-time header came back off the post?

Norwich twice scored on Albion’s previous visit to Norfolk when shots came back off the woodwork, hit goalkeeper David Stockdale and bounced in.

Maty Ryan had got well across so there was always the chance of a repeat misfortune.

But the ball evaded Ryan and Dan Burn hacked clear.


Albion are the only team to have kept clean sheets in each of their last three Premier League away games.

Arsenal and Wolves are on two successive shutouts away from home, the Gunners’ second having come at Molineux today.

They have not conceded on their league travels since Neal Maupay's late winner at the Amex a fortnight ago.


Summer football should mean warmer weather - but not this time.

Temperatures struggled to get above the high teens under a moody sky.

It was sunny and 25degC in Norwich on the afternoon of April 11, when the match would have been played had the season not been halted.
