Confirmed: Norwich City v Newcastle United lineups

Norwich City

Norwich City and Newcastle United will face each other in the Premier League this afternoon.

Newcastle United will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League this afternoon when they take on Norwich City away from home.

The Magpies will head into the game against Norwich on the back of a 1-1 draw with Sunderland at St. James’ Park in the league.

Rafael Benitez’s side are second from bottom in the Premier League table at the moment with just 25 points from 30 matches.

Newcastle are three points behind 17th-placed Norwich, who have played a game more.

The Magpies need to pick up all three points from this game in order to maintain a realistic chance of staving off relegation to the Championship at the end of the season.

Playing at home will give Norwich an advantage, but an early goal for Newcastle could make things tricky for the Canaries.

This is how Norwich and Newcastle will line up for the Premier League game at Carrow Road this afternoon:
