Last season in the second leg of the Championship, Norwich City and Derby County locked horns in a seven-goal thriller with the away side securing all three points. Both teams have demonstrated their fast-pace attacking football that saw many chances being created. The Premier League witnessed another thrilling clash when Daniel Farke and Frank Lampard went head-to-head.
After their triumph in the Championship, Norwich was heading into the new season with positive reactions and high confidence.
