Hugo Lloris returns in goal tonight after missing our last 23 games following an elbow injury sustained at Brighton on 5 October. He's one of two changes from Saturday's draw at Watford - Lloris and Sessegnon for Gazzaniga and Tanganga, both of whom are on the bench.

Following their 2-2 draw at Carrow Road in the reverse fixture, Norwich are looking to avoid defeat in both Premier League (PL) meetings with us for only the second time in a PL season (also in 2013-13). Away from, home they havent won any of their last 15 evening kick offs (7pm and later) in the PL, drawing 5 and losing 10, since winning 2-1 at Ipswich in September 1994.
Norwich have failed to score in more different away agames than any other PL side so far this season (7). The Canaries have netted just 5 goals in their 11 away games in 2019-20, fewer than any other side.
Norwich's Emiliano Buendia has created 68 chances in the PL this season , with only Kevin De Bruyne creating (82). For the Canaries, Buendia's tally of 68 is 45 more than any other player for the club (Todd Cantwell 23). Teemu Pukki has scored 10 goals in 22 PL games this season - he is one of only three Finnish players tp reach double figures in a PL season along with Jonatan Johansson in 2000-01 (11) and Mikael Forsell in 2003-04 (17)
We have won our last 2 PL home games against Norwich, 2-1 in September 2013 and 3-0 in December 2015. After winning 20 consecutive PL home games against promoted sides between 2012-18, we have failed to win 2 of our last 3 such matches - losing 1-3 against Wolves last season and drawing 1-1 with Sheffield United this term.
We have won our last 9 PL home games played on a Wednesday, since a 0-1 loss against Leicester in January 2016. We are one of two PL teams yet to score in 2020 along with Bournemouth.
We havent failed to score in 4 consecutive league games since September 2006. Since Dele's goal against Bighton on Boxing Day, we have not scored a PL goal in open play in our last 6 hours and 18 minutes of football, attempting 52 efforts in open play without success in that time.
