Norwich’s situation is beginning to look bleak.

Last weekend they were swatted aside by Manchester United, going down 4-0 at Old Trafford.

That means Daniel Farke’s side are now winless in nine league matches, dating all the way back to November 23, 2019.

This, unsurprisingly, means they are bottom of the table but are now eight points from safety.

The Canaries need points and they need them quickly.

Their next six are against Tottenham, Newcastle, Liverpool, Wolves, Leicester and then Sheffield United.

Those will not be easy so surely they must win this one to give themselves any chance.

Nine of their 14 points have been won at home so will they add three to both of those tallies here?

As for Bournemouth, their slide down the table has been simply alarming.

On September 20, they won 3-1 at Southampton to go sixth with ten points from six matches.

Since, the Cherries have won only two games out of a possible 16 and those were against Manchester United and Chelsea.

Last weekend, they hosted relegation rivals Watford but were comprehensively beaten 3-0.

A massive blow.

This means they remain in the bottom three for two consecutive weeks having not been there for two years prior.

They may be six points better off than their hosts but Bournemouth have absolutely no form, momentum or confidence.

In their next four, Eddie Howe’s side meet Brighton, Aston Villa, Sheffield United and then Burnley.

But when you’re 19th in the table, every match is a daunting prospect.

Thus, this trip to Norfolk is simply a must win.

Norwich have been one of the busiest clubs in the transfer market so far but, given their current position, this is no great surprise.

Tim Krul will continue in goal despite the fact he’s conceded the most goals in the league so far (38).

Despite this fact, the defence will remain unchanged.

Max Aarons will be at right-back with Sam Bryam keeping his place over Jamal Lewis on the other side.

At centre-back, with Timm Klos and Ben Godfrey both injured, Christoph Zimmermann will continue alongside Grant Hanley.

In midfield is where the new recruits are.

Slovakian international Ondrej Duda has joined on loan from Hertha BSC; he’s an attacking midfielder.

Likewise Lukas Rupp has arrived on a permanent deal from Hoffenheim, he too is an attack-minded midfielder.

However, both are expected to be on the bench.

Mario Vrančić, Alex Tettey and Kenny McLean are likely to continue in midfield.

Moritz Leitner, Tom Trybull, Ibrahim Amadou and Marco Stiepermann are the other options in a congested area of the squad.

Further forward, Emi Buendía and Todd Cantwell will be out-wide.

The latter has six goals in the Premier League so far this season.

However, their main goal threat could be back.

Teemu Pukki missed the trip to Old Trafford but could return after a hamstring injury.

Adam Idah would make way.

Will this side keep Norwich’s slim hopes of survival alive?

As for Bournemouth, their injury list is not as long as it once way but they are still missing some key components of their side.

In goal, Mark Travers deputised last weekend but usual number one Aaron Ramsdale should be back in for this one after a slight injury described by his manager as ‘bizarre’.

In defence, Jack Stacey, Lloyd Kelly, Chris Mepham and Charlie Daniels are long-term absentees.

Against Watford, weirdly, Nathan Aké returned but at left-back.

However, he’ll move inside here alongside Steve Cook; Adam Smith and Diego Rico will be at full-back with Simon Francis dropping out.

In midfield, David Brooks has not played all season; Arnaut Groeneveld is also injured.

Philip Billing is likely to come into the side, alongside Jefferson Lerma with Dan Gosling joining Lewis Cook and Andrew Surman on the bench.

Out-wide Ryan Fraser and Harry Wilson are likely to keep their place.

Junior Stanislas is back from injury but will only be a substitute.

Up front, with Josh King injured, Callum Wilson will continue to be partnered by Dominic Solanke.

The latter did score in the FA Cup against Luton a fortnight ago but still has not scored in the league since he joined the club for £19 million.

Will this side get a massive win for Bournemouth away at the only side below them in the table?
