Do we think Daniel Farke has got his sums right and more importantly can Norwich City’s players deliver to pull off a Premier League great escape?

The City boss reckons it will take at least six wins from the next 11 top flight games - starting with Sunday's trip to Wolves - to stand any chance of taking the fight for survival right down to the wire and the final day trip to Manchester City.

Norwich were brave and applauded from the field for their efforts in a 1-0 defeat to champions-elect Liverpool but had to rely on Aston Villa's stoppage time home defeat to Tottenham on Sunday not to lose any further ground in the race to stay up.

In Farke's quest for wins is the time now right to restore Emi Buendia to the starting line up? if so, who should make way in that attacking mix behind Teemu Pukki. And would you retain Grant Hanley and Christoph Zimmermann in tandem with Ben Godfrey waiting in the wings?
