Norwich City and Brighton meet in the Premier League on Saturday.

The early kick-off sees a crunch battle around the relegation zone, one which the hosts must realistically win if they want to avoid the drop.

The Canaries have restarted in woeful form and were heavily beaten in midweek, so Daniel Farke will expect a big reaction in a more winnable fixture.

Prediction

Brighton looked in far better shape after the restart than before it, but paid the price for a defensive-minded start against Man United last time out.

They are far better off taking a forward-thinking approach and should do so here, but Norwich know this is one of their must-win games if they want to beat the drop and could pull off a surprise result to give themselves hope.
