THE TEAM NEWS

NORWICH

  • Norwich slipped to defeat at Sheffield United last week which leaves them six points of safety now coming into this crunch home match.
  • Daniel Farke has no new injury concerns coming into this match though Zimmermann will have benefited from another week of training.
  • Vrancic is another option in central midfield if Farke does decide to change things around but it seems unlikely he will change too much.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Krul; Aarons, Hanley, Godfrey, Lewis; Tettey, McLean; Buendia, Duda, Cantwell; Pukki

Unavailable: Klose (Injured), Byram (Injured), Hernandez (Injured), Fahrmann (Personal reasons)

Doubtful: Zimmermann (Injured)

SOUTHAMPTON

  • Southampton slipped to a fourth defeat in their last five games at home to Newcastle last time out as they went down 0-1 at St. Mary's.
  • They were not helped by a 28th-minute dismissal of Djenepo and he will miss out here as Ralph Hasenhuttl will be forced into one change.
  • Armstrong and Smallbone may return from injury and illness respectively with the former a strong candidate to come into the starting eleven.

Predicted line-up (4-4-2): McCarthy; Valery, Stephens, Bednarek, Bertrand; Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Hojbjerg, Boufal; Ings, Long

Unavailable: Redmond (Injured), Djenepo (Suspended)

Doubtful: Smallbone (Illness), Armstrong (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Time is running out for Norwich as they have to target victories in their home matches like this one. They will welcome an out-of-form Saints side, but they may be a wounded animal after their tough result last week and Ralph Hasenhuttl's men are more than capable of playing spoilers here.
