This will be Norwich's fourth Premier League match on a Friday. They have lost the previous three against Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Watford by an aggregate score of 11-2.

After a run of nine Premier League home matches in which they let in at least two goals, Norwich have conceded only twice across their last three at Carrow Road (W1 D1 L1).
