Predicted Norwich City line-up to face Bristol City in the Championship

League leaders Norwich City travel to Ashton Gate to face Bristol City in the Championship on Saturday.

The Canaries are on top of the tree heading towards Christmas and are playing a brilliant brand of football.

After a dramatic 3-2 win over Bolton last weekend, Daniel Farke’s Norwich City will aim to get three points at Bristol City, who occupy the 13th place in the table.

Team News

Moritz Leitner missed the victory over Bolton with a calf problem but could return this weekend against Bristol. Timm Klose was also an absentee but should return to the team.

Probable Norwich City XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Daniel Farke

Tim Krul (GK)

Krul will be hoping to keep a clean sheet this time around after conceding twice against Bolton.

Max Aarons

Max Aarons (RB)

Aarons has established himself as the first-choice right-back this season. A certain starter at Bristol.

Christoph Zimmermann (CB)

Zimmermann is a solid defender who will look to keep the Bristol attackers at bay.

Timm Klose (CB)

Klose has been brilliant alongside Zimmermann at the heart of the Norwich defence this season. His presence was sorely missed last weekend as the Canaries conceded two goals.

Jamal Lewis (LB)

Lewis is a rampaging left-back who tries to give everything he can for his team.

Alex Tettey

Alex Tettey (CM)

Tettey’s presence in the team is of high importance. A strong midfielder, he keeps things simple and dictates the pace of the game for Norwich City.

Mario Vrancic (CM)

Vrancic could start in a deeper role again, alongside Tettey. He will look to get on the scoresheet against Bristol.

Emiliano Buendia (RW)

Given the form Buendia is in, he is one of the first names on Farke’s team sheet.

Marco Stiepermann (CAM)

Stiepermann brings creativity and flair to Norwich’s play in the last third. A sure starter at Bristol.

Todd Cantwell (LW)

Cantwell is in a good run of form and deserves to keep his place in the team.

Teemu Pukki (ST)

Pukki has become a favourite at the Carrow Road in a very short space of time. The Finnish centre-forward is tearing apart teams in the Championship and his form is vital for Norwich’s promotion hopes. An easy pick against Bristol City.
