Norwich are immediately back in action just two days after losing 5-0 to Arsenal on Monday, this time traveling to south London to face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
The Canary Islands are desperate for points. A victory here would not be enough to lift Dean Smith’s team out of the relegation zone due to a catastrophically bad goal difference, but it would be a good start to an escape attempt when we roll into 2022.
Here’s a look at the starting eleven that Smith could choose …

Angus Gunn (GK) – Made his Premier League debut for the Canary Islands on the second day of Christmas and is set to start again, with Tim Krul still hesitant.
Max Aarons (RB) – A constant presence in the Premier League this season.
Ozan Kabak (CB) – A lack of other options will ensure that the Turkish national team player starts again, even though Arsenal were only his second full 90 in the Premier League since the end of October.
Ben Gibson (CB) – Team captain in the last two games in the absence of Grant Hanley and will do so again.
Dimitrios Giannoulis (LB) – Could replace Brandon William, who started the 5-0 loss to Arsenal.

Pierre Lees-Melou (CM) – Can return to the starting lineup for the first time since the beginning of the month.
Billy Gilmour (CM) – Has been an important starter ever since Smith replaced Daniel Farke.
Kenny McClean (CM) – A lack of meaningful competition with Mathias Normann out and Lukas Rupp still doubtful means he should keep his place.

Christos Tzilos (RW) – Could only make his third Premier League start, especially if Todd Cantwell remains in disfavor.
Teemu Pukki (ST) – Norwich looks to the experienced Finn for goals. He has made five of their eight in the league this season.
Adam Idah (LW) – The 20-year-old has had a number of chances from the bench in recent weeks and that could lead to a start here.
