Robert Snodgrass remains the Canaries' main attacking threat as the Premier League season reaches the run-in, according to the EA Sports Player Performance Index.

He has had more attempts on goal than any of his colleagues with 56, and has on average had an on-target effort on goal every 76 minutes, the lowest in the squad.

Wes Hoolahan has been on hand to help out Snodgrass and has taken some of the attacking duties off of his shoulders. He has completed a pass in his opponents' half every 3.9 minutes.

Sébastien Bassong remains one of Norwich's main defensive leaders this season, his excellent reading of the game resulting in 110 interceptions.

Wigan boss Roberto Martinez will be looking for much greater defensive consistency from Franco Di Santo when he chooses to get involved in tracking back in the latter stages of the season. The striker has committed more fouls than any other Lactics player with 40.

James McCarthy has been at the centre of so much of Wigan's play. Not only has he made a solid 190 defensive contributions, he's also completed 717 passes in his opponents' half, the highest in the Wigan squad.

Look for Jean Beausejour to be testing the aerial ability of Norwich's defenders. He has delivered more crosses than any other Wigan player this year with 102.
