Fulham vs Norwich City match preview
Having caused a bit of an upset in round two, will Fulham’s Carabao Cup adventure continue?
Last month, the Cottagers knocked out Tottenham on penalties, converting all five of their spot-kicks, with Andreas Pereira, Raúl Jiménez, Harry Wilson, João Palhinha and Kenny Tete all netting from 12 yards.
Amazingly, the Whites haven’t gone beyond the fourth round of this competition for 19 years, but are just two wins away from changing that fact.
In the Premier League meanwhile, Marco Silva’s side are currently 11th, following Saturday’s rather uneventful goalless draw with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
Here, will Fulham make home advantage count?
Norwich City meantime have already enjoyed 1-0 away wins over both Queens Park Rangers and Bristol City in the League Cup, but do not come into this tie with very much confidence.
That’s because, on Saturday, the Canaries were smashed 6-2 by Plymouth Argyle at Home Park, thereby conceding 6+ in a second-tier fixture for the first time in 27 years.
Having now lost three of their last four Championship outings, David Wagner’s team have slipped down to eighth place, with the German manager certainly coming under pressure.
Norwich are winless in 11 visits to Craven Cottage, dating back to a 1-0 victory on New Year’s Day 1986.
This fact is unlikely to change, will Fulham firm favourites to progress.
Fulham team news
Marco Silva’s team are next in action on Monday night, taking on West London rivals Chelsea, but he is still likely to rotate his team.
Marek Rodák will start in goal, as he did in the second round against Spurs, with Calvin Bassey, Tom Cairney, Alex Iwobi, Harry Wilson and Carlos Vinícius all also likely to come in.
Left-back Fodé Ballo-Touré could make his debut, having arrived on loan form A.C. Milan on deadline day.
Norwich City team news
Shane Duffy could face the side he left only a few weeks ago, starting at centre-back.
In attack, Adam Idah’s brace in Saturday’s drubbing at Plymouth took his tally to four goals for the season, and he’ll continue to lead the line in the absence of Ashley Barnes.
