Norwich City vs Blackburn Rovers predictions: Norwich City line-up

Norwich City welcome Blackburn Rovers at Carrow Road on Saturday needing just one point to seal Premier League promotion.

The Canaries drew 2-2 with Stoke City on Monday but Leeds United’s loss to Brentford has put Daniel Farke’s men on the brink. Leaders Norwich now have a six point gap to Leeds with only six points left to play for and a 10 goal better goal difference.

Blackburn Rovers, meanwhile, are on a four-game winning run and will look to throw spanner to Norwich’s promotion charge.

Team News

Daniel Farke has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the game.

Probable Norwich City XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Daniel Farke

Tim Krul (GK)

Krul has bags of experience and more importantly, he has been a big part of Daniel Farke’s team this season.

Max Aarons (RB)

Aarons has played so well this season, nailing down a regular place in the team.

Ben Godfrey (CB)

A rock at the back, Godfrey has impressed a lot this campaign and should keep his place in the starting XI.

Christoph Zimmerman (CB)

Another key star in Norwich City’s back-line, Zimmermann has been Godfrey’s perfect partner and should look to keep Blackburn attackers at bay

Jamal Lewis (LB)

Lewis has been a regular fixture in the team this season. The youngster should retain his place at left-back.

Tom Trybull (CM)

Trybull has performed ever so well since the turn of the year, nailing down a regular berth in the team. He should start in the engine room as usual.

Kenny McLean (CM)

The partnership of McLean and Trybull in the midfield has blossomed since the start of 2019. With two games left and a point needed to guarantee promotion, Farke certainly won’t change his midfield pairing.

Marco Stiepermann (CAM)

With eight goals and six assists this season, the German has bailed Norwich out in crucial times and is expected to start against Blackburn.

Emiliano Buendia (RW)

Easily among Norwich City’s best players this season, the Argentine is a creative presence who has the ability to create chances for his teammates and score goals in equal measure.

Onel Hernandez (LW)

With his explosive pace, power, movement and crossing abilities, Hernandez will look to trouble the Blackburn backline at the weekend.
