Five players make their Norwich City debuts this evening, in the second round at Crawley Town, with centre-backs Christoph Zimmermann and Timm Klose among 11 changes to Daniel Farke's starting XI.

Manchester City loanee Patrick Roberts and summer signings Ralf Fahrmann and Ibrahim Amadou are both in the starting XI at Broadfield Stadium, with January arrival Philip Heise also starting.

Republic of Ireland U21 striker Adam Idah also makes his first senior appearance for the Canaries, against the League Two hosts.

Fit-again defenders Zimmermann and Klose start, with another recent arrival, right-back Sam Byram, making his first start.

PREVIEW: Better the devil you know for the Canaries?
