Daniel Farke’s injury hit Norwich City side travel to Stoke City hoping to extend their unbeaten run to nine matches - and you can follow all the updates, analysis and reaction from the Bet365 Stadium in our Matchday Live blog.

Table-topping City recorded an impressive 1-0 victory against Neil Warnock’s streetwise Middlesbrough side on Saturday but have been hit with another injury crisis seeing numerous first-team stars ruled out for significant periods of time.

Alongside Bali Mumba and Adam Idah, who both got injured during the recent international fixtures, Kenny McLean and Jordan Hugill have been ruled out due to knee and shoulder injuries respectively.

Todd Cantwell will also miss up to three weeks of action and left-back Xavi Quintilla still hasn’t returned from a hip injury suffered in the warm-up of City’s 1-1 draw with Brentford.

That means young duo Reece McAlear and Tom Dickson-Peters could be among the substitutes after Farke revealed he may struggle to fulfil the full squad quota.

The hosts will be without former City loanee Angus Gunn, who has suffered an ankle injury. The lively Tyrese Campbell is someone City will have to thwart if they are to leave Staffordshire with all three points.
