Mark Bowen gave Norwich the lead before Chris Sutton powered home a second. Bradley Allen pounced on a poor backpass to set up a tense finish. However, Norwich and most significantly Gunn were not to be denied. Norwich arrived on Merseyside in confident mood to take on Liverpool.
It was a year when the Reds would fall way below their usual high standards.
Norwich opened the scoring through Ian Butterworth, but Liverpool struck back to lead The game then turned when Mark Bowen blazed widely over from the spot. Liverpool running out comfortable winners. Further disappointment was to follow against struggling Middlesbrough. It took a late Daryl Sutch strike to keep Norwich in touch at the top. The start of the month saw Norwich travel to Boundary Park in front of the sky cameras. In a pulsating game, a Mark Robins hat trick put Norwich City back on top of the Premier League after twice being pegged back by Oldham, with Oldham's second equalizer coming from a wonderful chip from outside the box by Ian Marshall.
Norwich further stretched their advantage with a home win against Sheffield United. This was trumped by an outstanding success at Villa Park. Norwich opened the scoring through David Phillips with Darren Beckford doubling the lead after a mistake from Nigel Spink. Villa leveled the game at before Daryl Sutch scored the winner with a fierce drive.
David Phillips winner was enough to sink Wimbledon at Carrow Road. This meant that Norwich had now extended their lead at the top of the Premiership to 8 points. Norwich travelled to Old Trafford in confident mood ahead of the game against Manchester United. It was a watershed moment for the Canaries who were about to embark on a 6 match winless run which would ultimately go a long way towards costing them the title. The year ended with disappointing goalless draws against Spurs and Leeds.
The new year failed to bring a change of fortune as Nigel Worthington's goal was enough for Sheffield Wednesday to secure all 3 points at Hillsborough he would be manager of the Canaries seven years later. Norwich netted their first goal in almost 8 hours of football against Coventry but were eventually pegged back by a strike from Mick Quinn. Norwich regarded their first win since the start of December with a fine success against Crystal Palace. Lee Power capping a fine individual performance with 2 goals.
Norwich were further buoyed by a success at Goodison Park through Chris Sutton. A heavy defeat at Southampton was to follow before the Canaries chalked up their first win over Man City in nearly 30 years. This came courtesy of 2 goals in as many minutes. Norwich went some way to wiping away the memories of their disaster at Ewood Park with draw at Carrow Road based on a strong defensive performance.
