Predicted Norwich City line-up to face Birmingham in the Championship
Norwich City will welcome Birmingham City to the Carrow Road on Friday evening in a Championship fixture.
Despite being in the top three, the Canaries have hit a sticky patch of form in recent weeks. They earned a valuable point last time out against West Brom at the Hawthorns.
But Daniel Farke will hope Norwich City get back to winning ways against Birmingham City after failing to earn a victory in the last four games.
Daniel Farke has no injury problems ahead of the Birmingham City game. Mario Vrancic will miss the game after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season.
Probable Norwich City XI
Manager: Daniel Farke
Tim Krul (GK)
An experienced customer between the sticks, Krul will retain his place in the team.
Max Aarons (RB)
Aarons has established himself as a regular starter at right-back. He is a certain starter against Birmingham.
Christoph Zimmermann (CB)
Zimmermann should start in central defence as usual. He will have to be at his best to keep Birmingham forwards at bay.
Ben Godfrey (CB)
Partnering Zimmermann in central defence could be Ben Godfrey. He has proven his versatility for the Canaries of late and deserves to keep his place in the team.
Jamal Lewis (LB)
A rampaging left-back, Lewis will look to contribute as much as he can to the Norwich City attacks.
Alex Tettey (CM)
Tettey generally keeps things simple in the midfield and provides a base for the creative players to play freely.
Tom Trybull (CM)
Trybull is likely to partner Tettey in central midfield. The duo would look to dictate the tempo of the game with their passing.
Onel Hernandez (LW)
With his explosive pace and dribbling skills, Hernandez could cause a lot of problems for the Birmingham City backline.
Todd Cantwell (CAM)
In the No.10 role, Cantwell is expected to start. The youngster will look to link up the play between the midfield and the attack.
Emi Buendia (RW)
Buendia will start on the right wing of Norwich attack. With his creativity and vision, he can unlock the Birmingham defence on Friday.
