Norwich City beat Newcastle 3-1 on Saturday in their first home match back in the Premier League.
Teemu Pukki scored a hat-trick to secure the three points for Daniel Farke’s side, who sit 11th in the table as things stand.
There was a disappointing moment at the end of the game, though, as Grant Hanley switched off and allowed Jonjo Shelvey in to score – losing the clean sheet for Norwich.
Some Norwich fans took to Twitter to comment on Hanley’s mistake after the game…

READ NORWICH VERDICT
Norwich turned in a superb team performance against Newcastle and were well worth their victory, but things could have been different if Joelinton had punished Hanley for completely missing a header from a cross – allowing the Brazilian to head wide from close range.
It has to be said, however, that he did make some good challenges and was strong in the air for the most part, but struggled massively when running back towards his own goal and was bailed out by Ben Godfrey, and Teemu Pukki once, on several occasions.
He then switched off in stoppage time to allow Shelvey into the box before getting his own legs in a tangle to let the midfielder turn him again and finish into the corner.
Against better sides, like Liverpool for example, his errors will cost Norwich points. Christoph Zimmermann and Timm Klose need to return quickly.
