Fulham 2, Norwich City 1 - what the nationals said

The national newspapers' views on Norwich City's defeat at Fulham.

Sunday Mirror: 'Norwich were given a stark lesson in Premier League quality by Clint Dempsey and a Fulham team who appear to be on the up.'

The Mail on Sunday: 'Dare to wear bright orange boots and you had better play well. Clint Dempsey did just that, for the first half at least, and ultimately steered his side to victory.'

The Observer: 'With Fulham in the ascendancy it looked as if the visitors could be on course for a thrashing similar to the one they had received on their previous trip.'
