The Stoke City boss Alex Neil will be grateful to have no fitness concerns at all coming into this clash with a fully injury-free group available for selection.
In all likelihood, The Potters will probably go for a 4-2-3-1 formation, utilising Jack Bonham, Dujon Sterling, Ben Wilmot, Axel Tuanzebe, Ki-Jana Hoever, Ben Pearson, Josh Laurent, Jacob Brown, William Smallbone, Tyrese Campbell and Dwight Gayle.
📰 Team News: Norwich City
Norwich City boss David Wagner has to choose a team with limited availability. Przemyslaw Placheta (Shin bone bruise) and Isaac Hayden (Knee Injury) will not be playing here.
We believe The Canaries appear most likely to play in a 4-2-3-1 system, settling for Angus Gunn, Max Aarons, Grant Hanley, Andrew Omobamidele, Dimitris Giannoulis, Kenny McLean, Jakob Sörensen, Christos Tzolis, Gabriel Sara, Josh Sargent and Teemu Pukki.
We feel that Norwich City and Stoke City may well find themselves both scoring in what promises to be a very even battle here.
Let’s see what happens, but it could well be that we end up with scores level. Our tip is therefore for a very close game with a 1-1 draw at the end of the 90 minutes.
