Daniel Farke’s Norwich City has been sent back up to the English Premier League on Saturday without even kicking a ball.

Naija News reports that draws for Swansea and Brentford sent the Championship leaders back into the top-flight.

Recall that Norwich alongside Watford and Bournemouth were relegated from the EPL on the 2019/2020 season.

The Canaries’ have dominated the second tier with 27 wins from their 41 games so far, getting promoted after third-placed Swansea were held to a 2-2 draw by bottom of the table Wycombe, while fourth-placed Brentford drew 0-0 with Millwall.

Norwich are 14 points clear of Swansea, who have four games left, and 16 ahead of Brentford, who have five matches left.

They are also eight points clear of second-placed Watford, who lost 1-0 at local rivals Luton on Saturday.

With promotion secured, Norwich, who have won 11 of their past 13 matches, can relax going into their game against Bournemouth at Carrow Road later on Saturday.

Daniel Farke’s team can clinch the Championship title with five points from their remaining five matches.
