Norwich City v Swansea City Predictions – Norwich City Line-up
Championship leaders Norwich City will be aiming to keep their winning run going when they face Swansea City at Carrow Road this Friday night. The Canaries got the better of Millwall last week away from home, maintaining their two-point lead at the top of the standings.
Daniel Farke’s men are up against a Swansea side who are 14th in the table and not in the greatest of forms. The Welsh side are seven points behind in the race to finish in the top-six, hence, every game is a virtual must-win for them.
Louis Thompson will come back from his knee injury by April. Other than that, Farke has a fit squad to pick his eleven from.
