Norwich City will be back in the Premier League next season after their automatic promotion was confirmed this afternoon when Swansea City and Brentford failed to win.

This will see the Canaries back in England’s top flight division for the 2021/22 campaign after they were relegated last season.

They have now won promotion five times to the Premier League, but this is the earliest they have secured it since 2004.

Daniel Farke’s job is not done yet as they face Bournemouth on Saturday evening at 20:00 BST which can bring them one step closer to winning the title.

Whilst Farke and his squad cannot beat Reading’s record amount of points (106 in 2006), they can beat the record for the most amount of wins in a season (31) if they win all of their remaining fixtures.

Norwich’s remaining fixtures include: Bournemouth, Watford, Queens Park Rangers, Reading and Barnsley on the final day.

The attention has already started to turn to their chances of achieving Premier League survival next season.

Many believe Norwich need to invest and bring in reinforcements if they are to have a chance, but on the other hand, they need to keep the players that have performed this season.

The likes of Emi Buendía, Max Aarons and Todd Cantwell have all been linked with moves away from Carrow Road this summer.

Farke will be desperate to repeat January’s transfer window which he branded as ‘almost perfect’.

Speaking in February, Farke said: “Really happy. First of all, the window is now done and we no longer have to worry about all the speculation. We have many younger players with a lot of potential but right now they know that for the next three and a half months they can concentrate fully on the league with Norwich City.”

Norwich fans will worry that this may not be the case in the summer as it looks to be a transfer window filled with speculation surrounding some of their finest young talents.
