THE TEAM NEWS

NORWICH

  • Aside from their excellent win over Man City, Norwich's form has been poor of late having lost four of their last five games in the league.
  • Daniel Farke picked up even more injuries last week as Fahrmann is struggling while Godfrey and Lewis are also carrying knocks at present.
  • There is an outside chance Tettey and Vrancic could both return while Farke will hope Lewis and Godfrey are fit to avoid more changes.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): McGovern; Aarons, Godfrey, Amadou, Lewis; McLean, Leitner; Buendia, Stiepermann, Cantwell; Pukki

Unavailable: UKlose (Injured), Hernandez (Injured), Zimmermann (Injured), Trybull (Injured), Krul (Injured)

Doubtful: Fahrmann (Injured), Vrancic (Injured), Godfrey (Injured), Tettey (Injured), Lewis (Injured), Cantwell (Injured)

ASTON VILLA

  • Aston Villa drew 2-2 at home to Burnley last week but will have been frustrated after conceding two equalisers to Sean Dyche's men.
  • Boss Dean Smith is waiting on a number of fitness doubts as Lansbury, Targett, Wesley and Mings have all been carrying knocks this week.
  • Targett seems the most likely player to miss out here so Taylor could come back into the line-up with may otherwise be unchanged.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Heaton; Guilbert, Engels, Mings, Taylor; McGinn, Nakamba, Hourihane; El Ghazi, Wesley, Grealish

Unavailable: Chester (Injured), Kodjia (Injured)

Doubtful: Lansbury (Injured), Targett (Injured), Wesley (Injured), Mings (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

These two promoted teams have had difficult starts to life in the Premier League aside from the occasional moment of glory. Norwich won both matches 2-1 last season in the Championship and while they are favoured in this one, goals at both ends seems highly probably at Carrow Road.
