Norwich predicted lineup vs West Ham – Premier League – XenBet

Norwich host West Ham on Sunday afternoon having had their Premier League relegation officially confirmed last time out.

A 2-0 loss to Aston Villa last weekend represented their eighth league defeat in 11 outings and ensured that the Canaries would be playing football in the second tier next season – that feeling isn’t too unfamiliar for the club, with this being their third relegation from the top flight since 2013.

A victory would still be nice, though, and against a despondent West Ham side, there is a chance. Here’s how Dean Smith could set up.

GK: Tim Krul – In line for a ninth consecutive Premier League start, aiming for a sixth clean sheet this term.

RB: Max Aarons – Has sporadically impressed once again this term and should be set for another start, having missed a few outings of late.

CB: Grant Hanley – Should skipper the side in what would be a 15th start in Norwich’s previous 16 league fixtures.

CB: Ben Gibson – Smith has opted to leave him out of the side for the last couple of games – it’s not worked.

LB: Brandon Williams – With his loan spell coming to a close, Williams should be set for a 26th Premier League appearance of the season here.

CM: Billy Gilmour – Another loanee who’ll probably be glad that this campaign is nearing its end, Gilmour should be awarded a second consecutive start after being in and out of the side in recent weeks.

CM: Mathias Normann – Has been one of the side’s brighter performers over the course of this season and will surely retain his spot in midfield.

CM: Pierre Lees-Melou – Having also shown encouraging signs, the young Frenchman should once again line up as the most advanced midfielder this weekend.

RW: Kieran Dowell – A fifth consecutive start beckons for the youngster, mostly courtesy of injuries to both Adam Idah and Josh Sargent, although a goal and an assist against Manchester United recently will have helped in this run of starts too.

ST: Teemu Pukki – The first name on the team sheet, Pukki has managed ten Premier League goals this campaign – which considering this team’s total is merely 22 is actually phenomenal.

LW: Milot Rashica – Considering some of the displays the Kosovan has put in this term, you’d have to imagine he’s playing his final games for Norwich.
