Probable Norwich City XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Daniel Farke

Tim Krul (GK)

Made a horrible mistake on Wednesday that led to a Hull goal. Krul will be looking to make amends at the weekend.

Max Aarons (RB)

The revelation of the season, Aarons has nailed down his place at right-back and should keep his place in the team.

Christoph Zimmermann (CB)

A rock at the back, Zimmermann has been brilliant for the Canaries. He is an undoubted starter at Rotherham.

Ben Godfrey (CB)

Godfrey has made a telling impact in the last couple of months, forming a solid partnership at the back with Zimmermann. He deserves to keep his place in the team.

Jamal Lewis (LB)

The 21-year-old Jamal Lewis has been a regular feature for Daniel Farke’s side, playing a key role in their promotion bid.

Tom Trybull (CM)

Trybull has nailed down a regular spot in the team with a series of consistent displays of late. On current form, he simply is one of the first names on the team sheet.

Mario Vrancic (CM)

McLean has partnered Trybull in central midfield of late but Farke could look to give him some rest and hand Vrancic an opportunity on Saturday. Vrancic has been a vital player for Norwich this season and will look to repay his manager’s faith.

Emiliano Buendia (RW)

Scored a brace in the 3-2 victory over Hull and will be confident of getting on the score sheet again on Saturday.

Marco Stiepermann (CAM)

The goal against Hull would have given Stiepermann a lot of confidence heading into the business end of the season. He is expected to start in his preferred no.10 role.

Onel Hernandez (LW)

Blessed with explosive pace, power and trickery, Hernandez is a livewire on the field and can single-handedly torment Rotherham on Saturday.
