Norwich City have made nine changes to their starting line-up for this evening’s Carabao Cup third round clash away to League One side Wycombe Wanderers.
Christoph Zimmermann and Emi Buendia are the only surviving members of the starting XI from the 1-0 win at QPR in the Championship on Saturday, with strikers Dennis Srbeny and Jordan Rhodes both starting.
Ben Godfrey starts alongside Zimmermann in central defence, with Michael McGovern in goal and Felix Passlack and Ivo Pinto at full-back.
Alex Tettey and Todd Cantwell drop out completely but star striker Teemu Pukki is on the bench if needed, as are the experience of Timm Klose, Mo Leitner and Marco Stiepermann.
The Canaries go into the tie unbeaten in five matches in all competition and on the back of a three-match winning streak in the Championship, having knocked out Premier League side Cardiff 3-1 in the last round.
Wycombe are 18th in the third tier following promotion and earned a 2-2 draw at high-flying Portsmouth in the league on Saturday, having knocked out League Two sides Northampton and Forest Green on penalties in the earlier rounds.
Norwich: McGovern; Passlack, Zimmermann, Godfrey, Pinto (C); Trybull, Thompson; Vrancic, Buendia, Srbeny; Rhodes. Subs: Krul (GK), Leitner, Lewis, Klose, Stiepermann, Pukki, Aarons
