James threatened once more as the first half edged to a close when he nutmegged Kenny McLean and went to beat Christophe Zimmerman, who closed his legs at the right moment and the ball went away for another corner.
Farke’s words at half-time clearly had an effect as Norwich looked more threatening in the second half, winning an early corner and stretching Swansea.
