Have Norwich City won more than ten games at Carrow Road in 2020?

And Norwich have been handed a triple injury boost ahead of the clash – with defender Ben Gibson, Lukas Rupp and Xavi Quintilla all available for selection.

However, goalkeeper Tim Krul, whose not been involved in their previous seven league matches, continues to miss out due to a thigh injury he sustained against Stoke City last month, meaning 36-year-old Michael McGovern should keep him place between the sticks for the Canaries.

Meanwhile, Przemyslaw Placheta remains sidelined for Farke, who also confirmed that defender Marco Stiepermann is a major doubt due to an injection in his ear, although the Norwich manager admitted that it’s nothing too serious.
