Norwich City suffered at the hands of Alan Pardew’s Crystal Palace in a 1-0 defeat at Selhurst Park this afternoon.
A 68th-minute Jason Puncheon goal broke the dead-lock, seeing Alex Neil’s unchanged Norwich side struggling to replicate last week’s dramatic winner against Newcastle.
An injury to defender Timm Klose before half time saw Sebastien Bassong replace the Swiss, whilst Patrick Bamford and Nathan Redmond replaced Steven Naismith and Matt Jarvis in the second half.
Shots for both sides came to no avail, leaving Palace holding onto their only goal and the Canaries travelling home with no points.
