Norwich City and Southampton are drawing 0-0 at Carrow Road this afternoon.

Norwich City are drawing 0-0 with Southampton at half time in their Premier League match.

The first chance of the afternoon fell to Norwich's Nathan Redmond. The winger cut in from the left and beat two defenders, but fired his shot wide.

Bradley Johnson was the next to threaten for the home side, but his effort was off target.

Norwich continued their impressive start and could have taken the lead, but were denied by Artur Boruc's save from Leroy Fer's close-range shot.

However, Southampton could have had a penalty minutes later when Adam Lallana's cross appeared to hit Johnson's hand, but Howard Webb waved away the appeals.

The Canaries were back on the attack before the break as Redmond found Robert Snodgrass, who then played in Steven Whittaker, but the defender's strike went out for a goal kick.

Lallana had a great chance near the end of the first half, but struck the post.
