The national newspapers' views on Norwich City's 1-0 defeat at Stoke City.
Sunday Mirror: 'It was appropriate that the goal which has all but secured Premier League safety for Stoke should have come from a man drafted in to change the perception of the club.'
The Mail on Sunday: 'Nzonzi was lucky to be on the field after a late tackle on Kei Kamara, one of a series of unpleasant challenges in a first half with four bookings.'
The Observer: 'Chris Hughton's side will have to improve dramatically on this latest lacklustre away performance . . . they are fortunate to be out of the bottom three.'

The Independent: 'Despite the introduction of Wes Hoolahan to add some craft, Norwich did not force a save out of Asmir Begovic . . . they remain on 38 points and cannot relax.'
The Sunday Telegraph: 'Norwich could have lost more heavily. Soon after the first goal, Crouch produced a terrible air shot from just four yards out after a cross from Adam.'
