Norwich gave a strong account of themselves at Old Trafford last weekend, and their performance deserved to produce a positive result, but Cristiano Ronaldo‘s brilliant hat-trick for Manchester United saw the Red Devils run out 3-2 winners over the league’s bottom club.
The Canaries are not dead and buried, but it is going to take some effort for the team to escape the relegation zone at this stage of the season, as they are currently eight points behind 17th-placed Everton, who have a game in hand.
Dean Smith‘s side have won five, drawn six and lost 21 of their 32 league matches this season, conceding 66 times and scoring just 22, so it is not a surprise to see them at the bottom of the table at this stage.
Norwich will surely need to win all of their remaining games to stand a chance of staying in the division, and they will follow this match with fixtures against Aston Villa, West Ham United, Leicester City, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Tottenham Hotspur.
The Canaries have the second-worst home record in the Premier League this season, picking up just 12 points from 16 matches, and they will be facing a Newcastle team that is full of confidence.
Norwich will again be missing Adam Idah, Ozan Kabak, Joshua Sargent and Andrew Omobamidele through injury, but Brandon Williams is back, having been ineligible against Man United last weekend.
Billy Gilmour and Przemyslaw Placheta both featured off the bench against Man United and are in contention, but it would not be a surprise to see the same XI from the clash at Old Trafford.
As a result, Max Aarons might have to accept a spot on the bench once again, with Sam Byram set to continue at right-back, while Kieran Dowell is likely to earn another position in the final third of the field.
As for Newcastle, Callum Wilson, Isaac Hayden, Jamal Lewis and Kieran Trippier remain on the sidelines through injury, while Ryan Fraser is facing a battle to be fit before the end of the season.
Head coach Howe is likely to name close to the same side that took to the field against Palace last time out, although there could be a change in attack, with Jacob Murphy potentially replacing Allan Saint-Maximin.

Joe Willock is also pushing for a spot in the side, but Guimaraes was again impressive against the Eagles and should keep his spot, while Almiron is also expected to retain his position in the final third of the field.

Krul; Byram, Hanley, Gibson, Giannoulis; McLean, Normann; Dowell, Lees-Melou, Rashica; Pukki
