Both Norwich and Southampton come into this competitive fixture looking to bounce back in style with a win.

The Canaries are only a win away from moving up to 10th in the league if results go their way, but Chris Hughton will not let his side forget that they will have a battle on their hands when Southampton come to town.  

The Saints will be disappointed with their last result as they lost at home to former manager Harry Redknapp’s Queens Park Rangers side, leaving them just three points off the relegation zone. Wigan will not play in the league this weekend thanks to an FA Cup tie with Everton, and Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino will hope his side can turn their good performances into positive results to move away from the relegation tussle.
