EPL: NCFC vs SaintsFC

Norwich 18:00 Southampton

Southampton, who are in a poor form, will be traveling on the pitch of rookie Norwich City who is struggling at the bottom of the table at the earliest match in the 30th round. The previous round lost. But Canaries also want to successfully claim the debt lost in the first leg to narrow the gap with the safety group.

Emiliano Buendia has recovered from a muscular injury sustained in a Tottenham FA Cup fifth round victory and has started the weekend defeat against hosts United United Sheffield United in the previous round in the Premier League. The 4th defeat in the last 6 rounds and the 8th defeat in the Premier League this season of Canaries so they continue to stay at the bottom of the table with 6 points less safe area. Center-back Christoph Zimmermann was strong enough to return to the bench last weekend to reinforce Norwich's defensive options. Goalkeeper Ralf Fahrmann missed Norwich's last two matches for personal reasons but top scorer Tim Krul is still in good shape. Norwich's injury list currently has only 2 players: Timm Klose, Sam Byram and Onel Hernandez. Already less than 2.

Moussa Djenepo started his ban on three matches after his red card in last weekend's loss to Newcastle, the fourth defeat in the last 5 rounds and the 15th loss of The Saints. Nathan Redmond still has to sit out, he has only 3 goals for them this season. Stuart Armstrong missed last weekend's game due to an injury and Yan Valery made a costly mistake with Newcastle in his first appearance since November. from Tottenham is Kyle Walker-Peters. Southampton are 7 points ahead of the red light team, with a good record when away from home (20 points after 14 matches) but very bad at home (14 points after 15 matches) this season.
