Emi Buendia remains on the bench as Daniel Farke sticks with the same team which drew 0-0 at Newcastle for this evening’s daunting clash with runaway leaders Liverpool.
Ben Godfrey returns to the bench after his three-game suspension, replacing Tom Trybull among the substitutes, where Argentine ace Buendia remains.
Kenny McLean makes his 50th appearance for the Canaries, with fellow Scotland international Grant Hanley retaining his place ahead of Godfrey in central defence.
Opposition view: Liverpool fans still not ready to believe their long wait is over
The visitors make one change from their team which won 4-0 at home against Southampton prior to the international break, with Naby Keita replacing Fabinho as the defensive presence in midfield.
Fabinho is on the bench, as are the fit-again Sadio Mane and James Milner, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain retaining his place ahead of star man Mane, who has missed three games with a hamstring strain.
