Norwich v Crystal Palace predicted lineups and match preview

Norwich Carrow Road 2

Norwich City host Crystal Palace in the Premier League this weekend.

To be played on Saturday 8th August 2015 at 15:00. Venue: Carrow Road, Norwich

Odds: Norwich 6/4, Draw 11/5, C. Palace 19/10

Norwich City return to the Premier League this weekend as they take on Crystal Palace at Carrow Road.

Manager Alex Neil galvanised the Canaries last season, taking them from outside the top six in the Championship to success in the play-off final, beating Middlesbrough 2-0 at Wembley Stadium to make an instant return to the Premier League.

Neil hasn't splashed the cash much this summer, preferring to keep his squad intact from last season - though three new arrivals could start in Andre Wisdom, Youssouf Mulumbu and Robbie Brady.

The home crowd could be a factor for Norwich, in a game which could be hugely difficult for Neil's men as they take on Alan Pardew's Crystal Palace.

The Eagles have added some big signings in Yohan Cabaye and Connor Wickham, with both expected to start the game this weekend.

With existing talent such as Scott Dann, Yannick Bolasie and Wilfried Zaha also set to start, Palace have an exciting side, and will be looking to demonstrate their top eight credentials with a win against Norwich.
