Norwich have made two changes to the side that lost to Aston Villa with Nathan Redmond stepping in for Youssouf Mulumbu while Cameron Jerome replaces Dieudonne Mbokani Bezua.

The Canaries continue to struggle at the bottom of the league having lost to fellow relegation contenders Aston Villa in last week's clash at Villa Park.

It was their fifth defeat in a row but with Newcastle only one point ahead of them, the home side have a chance to take themselves out of the relegation zone if results go their way today.

As for West Ham, the Hammers have made four changes to the team that beat Liverpool in Tuesday night's FA Cup fixture.

Song returns to the starting line-up after missing out on West Ham's 2-1 victory, while Byram comes in right-back and Collins takes Reid's place at centre back. Randolph steps aside for Adrian.

The Hammers last Premier League fixture ended in disappointment as they were consigned to a 1-0 defeat at St Mary's but at only three points off fifth place, the prospect of European football remains in touching distance.


Norwich: Ruddy, Martin, Klose, Bassong, Brady, Howson, O'Neil, Redmond, Hoolahan, Naismith, Jerome.

Subs: Mbokani Bezua, Bamford, Rudd, Jarvis, Dorrans, Olsson, Pinto

West Ham: Adrian, Bryam, Collins, Ogbonna, Cresswell, Noble, Song, Obiang, Antonion, E Valencia, Payet

Subs: Randolph, Carroll, Moses, Emenike, Oxford, Parfitt-Williams, Browne
