The Canaries came from behind twice at St Andrew’s to earn an opening 2-2 draw against Birmingham last weekend.
Meanwhile, Albion have already played twice – suffering a shock opening 2-1 defeat at home to Bolton thanks to Yanic Wildschut’s late winner, before Matt Phillips equally late equaliser claimed a point at Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night.
City make a swift return to Carrow Road, with their Carabao Cup first round tie at home to Stevenage on Tuesday evening (7.45pm).
Daniel Farke’s squad then face Sheffield United next Saturday (3pm), for a reunion with Chris Wilder at Bramall Lane.
Each and every Norwich City first-team game, our reporters will be on the scene. If you see them – especially with their cameras – say hello.
