    Norwich looking for positive reaction against Stoke City

    Probable Lineups:

    Norwich City (4-4-1-1) Ruddy, Martin, Yobo, Bassong, Olsson, Snodgrass, Tettey, Johnson, Redmond, Hoolahan, Hooper

    Changes are in the books for Chris Hughton’s side as they fell to a 4-1 defeat against Aston Villa in their previous fixture. With problems in the backline Ryan Bennet could return to the fray to replace Joseph Yobo. Both center defenders are on injury doubts, but should be fit to start. Wes Hoolahan is looking to get his starting role back with the only goal for his side against Villa. Defender Micheal Turner and midfielder Jonas Gutierrez will not feature.

    Stoke City (4-2-3-1): Begovic, Cameron, Shawcross, Wilson, Pieters, Adam, Whelan, Odemwingie, Walters, Arnautovic, Crouch

    With Charlie Adam serving a three-match ban for his stamp on Arsenal’s Olivier Giroud, Stoke manager Mark Hughes is forced to call in reinforcement in the form of Stephen Ireland to play the role of playmaker. Peter Odemwingie is a doubt, but if he is fit enough, he just might get the nod ahead of Ireland. Jonathan Walters, who scored the winning penalty against Arsenal will stand behind lone striker Peter Crouch, completing the 4-2-3-1 formation.

    What the fans are saying…

     

     

     

    Remember this?

    Last time around Stoke midfielder Charlie Adam was the only one who got on the scoresheet as Norwich City were brushed aside 1-0. Norwich have their chance for revenge with Adam serving a ban.

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    With Stoke not having a very strong away record, Martin Olsson can prove to be a hassle for the Potter’s front line. With Olsson playing the full 90 minutes in almost every game this season and Norwich’s ability to defend leads at home, he will be looking to stop the likes of Jonathan Walters and Peter Crouch from scoring at all cost.
