Norwich v West Brom

Norwich City will be desperate for an upturn in form when they host West Bromwich Albion at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon.

The Canaries have won just one of their last five outings in all competitions and come into this weekend's game off the back of two consecutive defeats.

The most recent of those was a sensational 6-2 defeat to Newcastle United at St James' Park last weekend, which sees them languishing down in 16th position.

Gary Hooper and Lewis Grabban could come into contention after stepping up their rehabilitation from their respective ankle problems.

Youssouf Mulumbu has featured for Norwich's Under-21's side this week, but will not face his former side as he continues recovery from a fractured metarsarsal.

The Baggies, meanwhile, have not been in the greatest form either, having lost three of their last five games, but did edge out Sunderland 1-0 in their most recent fixture.

West Brom are just three places better off than their opposition with 11 points after nine games, having won three, drawn two and lost four of those.

James Morrison remains doubtful with an ankle injury, while Stephane Sessegnon or James McClean could find themselves benched if manager Tony Pulis reverts to a 4-5-1 formation.
