Olsson was dismissed in the second minute for handling the ball on his own goal line at Loftus Road in an incident that saw the Swedish international sent-off and QPR awarded a penalty. Tjaronn Chery missed the spot kick but the hosts won the game with first-half goals from Conor Washington and Sebastian Polter.

City released a statement from the FA on their official web site on Monday afternoon, which read: 'Norwich City have been fined £15,000 after the club admitted an FA charge of failing to control its players. The incident occurred in the second minute of the game against Queens Park Rangers on November 19 2016.'
