Norwich City travel away to face Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday as they look to end their poor run of away form.
The Canaries have lost all four of their away matches this season, scoring once in the process. They lost 4-1 to Liverpool, 1-0 to Crawley, 2-0 to West Ham and 2-0 to Burnley, whilst winning two of their three games at home.
After being beaten 2-0 by Burnley last weekend, Daniel Farke will be hoping that his side learned their lesson and will be better prepared for the trip to Selhurst Park as they look to pick up all three points.
Alex Tettey and Tim Krul have both been ruled out for the game, after suffering injuries last week.

But how will Norwich line up? Here is our predicted XI ahead of the game…
With Krul out, Ralf Farhmann should make his league debut in goal. He’s a doubt with a groin injury, but trained on Friday, which suggests that he should be fine to play.
Byram should keep his place at right-back after impressing in the last two games for Norwich. Max Aarons remains sidelined.
Amadou had a few wobbles against Burnley, but Farke could stick with him alongside Ben Godfrey as they look to form a partnership at the back.
Godfrey has had a great start to the season, despite Norwich’s defensive woes, and should start again. With Tettey out, Godfrey could be given the captain’s armband.
McLean deserves another start despite the defeat to Burnley in order to show what he can do at Premier League level.
Leitner impressed off the bench against Burnley, which may be enough to earn himself a start at Palace.
Norwich’s biggest creative outlet. Buendia already has four assists this season and will be looking to add to that this weekend.
Stiepermann needs to start adding end product to his game or he might run the risk of being dropped in the near future.
Cantwell is fully deserving of his place in the side on the left. He’ll be hoping to cause Palace problems with his creative play down the wing.
After a disappointing performance against Burnley, Pukki will be looking to bounce back with a goal at Selhurst Park to add to his six league strikes already.
