Mousa Dembele raises a smile when he's reminded of the last time Norwich visited the Lane.

That match on September 1, 2012 saw Mousa come off the bench at half-time to strike wonderful goal 20 minutes into his debut.

Unfortunately, the ‘dream debut’ was gatecrashed when Robert Snodgrass equalised for Norwich with five minutes remaining.

“It was a wonderful feeling to score on my debut, and a great experience for me,” reflected Mousa at the Training Centre this week.

“Norwich are a good team and we have a lot of respect for them. We didn’t have a lot of success against them last season and we know it will be tough.

“They have bought some good players as well, players I know from the Dutch league like Leroy Fer and van Wolfswinkle, so they have improved, but we are better as well and at home, we need to make the difference."
