The Shape of You singer was seen sitting in the Norwich end despite reportedly being an Ipswich fan.

And fans on Twitter were quick to point out the musician had come along to watch the match.

With a nod to one of Ed's hits, @PepsiMaxed50 said: 'I'm just thinking out loud but it's good to see Ed Sheeran at the Norwich game.'

Andy Cossey joked he had finally got a selfie with Norwich legends Adam Drury and Grant Holt and an Ipswich fan - in this case Ed Sheeran - photo bombs you.
