With seven Premier League games remaining until the turn of the year and the season’s halfway stage, we take a look at how we think Norwich City will fare up until the start of 2016.

Vs Chelsea (A), Nov 21

Some say it is the perfect time to play the defending Premier League champions after their catastrophic start to the season, but even Jose Mourinho’s gloomy Blues should have enough firepower to worm their way past the similarly struggling Canaries.

Shoot Says: Lose

Vs Arsenal (H), Nov 29

The Gunners have now won five of their last six Premier League games, joining Manchester City as joint-leaders at the top of the table. I’m afraid to say it looks like back-to-back defeats for Alex Neil’s men.

Saturday’s 1-0 win over Swansea City halted a run of four straight league defeats for Alex Neil’s Norwich City.

Vs Watford (A), Dec 5

Given how well the Hornets have adapted to Premier League life; especially in-form forward Odion Ighalo, we predict Norwich could be tumbling into the bottom three by early December given a third straight league defeat.

Shoot Says: Lose

Vs Everton (H), Dec 12

Away from home; Roberto Martinez’s Toffees can be temperamental and rather inconsistent. Bearing that in mind, Norwich should be able to salvage a point in front of the Carrow Road faithful.

Shoot Says: Draw

Vs Manchester United (A), Dec 19

Back to losing ways I’m afraid for Norwich. Louis van Gaal’s Red Devils remain unbeaten at home so far this season having won four and drawn two at Old Trafford. We don’t fancy the Canaries becoming the first side to snatch all three points from the Theatre of Dreams, just yet.

Shoot Says: Lose

Vs Tottenham (A), Dec 26

Merry Christmas Norwich fans; your festive fixture list doesn’t get much harder does it? With Spurs on a mission to gatecrash the Premier League’s top four and England striker Harry Kane seemingly finding his feet once more in front of goal, we predict a fifth defeat in six games for the Canaries.

Shoot Says: Lose

Vs Aston Villa (H), Dec 28

Maybe there is light at the end of the tunnel? Perhaps in their final fixture of 2015, Norwich could scupper their first league win since early November by defeating Remi Garde’s Aston Villa at Carrow Road. Something to savour perhaps at the end of the year as we predict the Canaries will be 17th in the table come 2016.

Shoot Says: Win

Overall Points: 16

League position: 17th
