Norwich City clinched promotion to the Premier League with five games to spare on Saturday after rivals Brentford and Swansea failed to win their Championship matches, guaranteeing Daniel Farke’s league leader one of the automatic promotion places.

Norwich sealed its immediate return to the top flight after finishing last in the Premier League in the 2019-20 campaign.

The Canaries have enjoyed an outstanding season and sit at the top of the second division standings with 90 points from 41 matches.

Only second-placed Watford, currently eight points behind, can now deny Farke’s side the second-tier title.

Unbeaten in 13 matches, Norwich could take another step towards the league title when it faces Bournemouth later on Saturday.
