The Premier League’s bottom two meet at Carrow Road this afternoon and our reporters will be there to bring you all the updates from Norwich City’s crunch clash with survival rivals Bournemouth.

Just one win in 17 league games has left Daniel Farke's team eight points from safety with 16 games remaining, making victory over their closest rivals essential to their hopes of avoiding relegation.

Bournemouth are six points better off in 19th but have lost nine of their last 11 matches to nosedive down the table, in their fifth consecutive season in the top flight.

Norwich go into the game boosted by strikers Teemu Pukki and Josip Drmic returning to fitness, as well as defender Ben Godfrey, and also have new midfield signings Ondrej Duda and Lukas Rupp hoping to be involved.
