Bottom club Norwich City remain without a Premier League win 10 games into the season

after slumping to defeat against fellow strugglers Leeds United at Carrow Road.

After a dour first half, the match burst into life when Raphinha dribbled past three players to fire the visitors

into a 56th-minute lead after being picked out by Dan James.

Norwich were level inside two minutes when 19-year-old defender Andrew Omobamidele headed home from
a corner needlessly conceded by keeper Illan Meslier.

But Leeds restored their advantage on the hour through Rodrigo’s long-range effort after Norwich had lost

possession outside their own box.

It was an improved performance by the Canaries after their humiliating 7-0 defeat at Chelsea last week,

but Daniel Farke’s side have now lost eight of their 10 matches since winning the Championship with

97 points last season.

James went closest to scoring in the first half after rounding Tim Krul but Grant Hanley was in the right place

to clear his attempt off the line.

The hosts at least showed more desire than they did at Stamford Bridge, but once again they lacked any

real attacking threat.

Teemu Pukki and Mathias Normann both went close with first-time attempts and Milot Rashica forced

a save from a free-kick.

Norwich also felt they should have had a penalty in the early stages when the ball struck James but referee

Anthony Taylor waved away their appeals.

All three goals were scored in the space of four minutes and 21 seconds in the second half and for Norwich City

are now  facing the serious issue that they are still staying at the bottom of the table with got just only 2 points

after playing for 10 matches in the league and defeated  8 matches so far.
