What subs would you choose?

Personally I would go steer, hause, konsa, hourihane, lansbury, Jota, Davis.

Would go exactly the same team except I'd like to see a 4-2-3-1 with Nakamba and Luiz both holding and McGinn playing off Wesley but dropping back to defend when we don't have the ball.

 

....................................Heaton....................................

Guilbert............Engels.............Mings............Targett

........................Luiz...............Nakamba......................

Trezeguet....................SJM..........................Grealish

..................................Wesley......................................

 

Me too. Wonder if it's worth considering chucking this team out there and telling Nakamba to stay on Pukki all match. Neutralise Pukki and you neutralise a lot of their threat.

I reckon the team will be the same as started against Burnley maybe Conor gets dropped for Luiz not sure though. I wouldn't be disappointed if the same team started, I just want to see tired/not performing players getting subbed much earlier. If big Wes has another shocker he needs to come off at half time!

One thing is for sure. There will be goals in this one.

2 teams with a woeful defense.

Agree. Every game we have lost has been by the odd goal. 

Have Norwich still got an injury crisis? They will try to win this which could work in our favour on the break.

Good bring it on, I think we have a slightly better team but they have the home advantage going to be a very interesting game.

Yet we are the team that's conceded most shots on target.

Just recently we've conceded 5 goals in the past 2 games.

Our defence right now is not great. We all love Mings, and Engels has looked good, but they are both making several mistakes each match. I'm not totally convinced by Guilbert yet. I think Targett will come good, but needs to stay free of injuries. Taylor is not good enough, although I do think he is something of a scapegoat.

Taylor is the number one scapegoat.

I know this may come across as a shock to most people on here but Taylor isn't the reason we are bottom 3.

Away from home that actually looks awesome, might leave Wesley a bit isolated but McGinn has the legs to link it up, I'd give Grealish free reign to go where he wants and tell Nakamba to help out Taylor when Grealish is awol on that side. I'd keep the three trequartistas narrow too. Would help us play out a game with a 5 tight in midfield knocking it about.

And in the 3 Prem games before the last 2 we allowed a total of 1 goal.  Our defense is more than adequate to maintain our Premier League status.

Given Norwich’s injuries, no excuses not to get something out of this one.

Who is out for them? Edit- on bbc football website it says that they’re down to their third choice keeper who is actually still decent, Michael McGovern, he’s a Northern Irish international. Grant Hanley is also out who is a decent centre back, it also says they have 9 players out injured so we should have a chance of victory

9 first team players allegedly, including both the regular keepers.   Mainly defenders out them I think?  Cantwell is a slight doubt and would be the biggest miss, but expect him to make it to be honest.

So it should be considering all of the money we’ve spent on it

I hope Cantwell is out, I think he’s excellent, I think he’ll make it too
