Premier League Preview: Fulham - Norwich City

The Canaries are just one away from the 40-point mark and are traveling to face Martin Jol's side, who could be facing the prospect of a fourth straight defeat


PROBABLE LINEUPS

FULHAM

Schwarzer
Kelly, Hangeland, Hughes, Riise
Duff, Diarra, Dempsey, Murphy, Dembele
Pogrebnyak

NORWICH CITY

Ruddy
Martin, Whitbread, Ward, Naughton
Bennet, Howson, Fox, Surman
Jackson, Morison


Fulham is without Andy Johnson, who still has no set return date from a knee injury. The home side is also without long-term absentees Steve Sidwell (hernia) and Zdenek Grygera (knee).

The Cottagers have lost three in a row and a re-call for Danny Murphy would seem a logical choice as manager Martin Jol looks to shore up his midfield. Aaron Hughes is expected to continue in defense, in place of Phillipe Senderos.

Norwich City is without top-scorer Grant Holt who was sent-off in his last game. Steve Morison will be his likely replacement. Anthony Pilkington is struggling to be fit and with so many attacking options available, there is no need to risk the winger from the start, a place on the bench is more likely.

Kyle Naughton is also expected to come in at left back, where he has often been deployed in away games for the Canaries this season.
