Norwich City have made three changes to their starting XI for this evening’s Premier League clash with Crystal Palace.

Sam Byram reclaims his place from Jamal Lewis at left-back, having come in for Saturday's 2-2 home draw with Tottenham, with Todd Cantwell and Kenny McLean doing likewise, Marco Stiepermann and Onel Hernandez dropping to the bench with Lewis.

Mario Vrancic does keep his place after an influential role against Spurs, which was in doubt after gashing his tongue in a heavy collision early in the second half.
