Norwich entertain Swansea on Sunday looking for a third straight Premier League home victory.

Although Chris Hughton’s side have been poor on the road, shipping seven goals at Manchester City and five at Liverpool, their home form has been decent of late, with successes against West Ham and Crystal Palace.

Norwich have had the edge over Swansea since both returned to the top flight, having won three of the past four meetings, with no less than 20 goals being shared in the process.

Norwich’s defence has let them down on a number of occasions this term though, and that is a worry against a visiting side that will be determined to regain the winning thread themselves.

Michael Laudrup’s men looked to be going places when thumping Newcastle 3-0, but were held to a draw by Hull and went down, albeit narrowly, to St Gallen in

Switzerland in the Europa League on Thursday night.Centre-back Chico Flores went off with a knee injury in the last game but is suspended for the Norwich trip anyway, while on the plus side Swansea can welcome back striker Michu, who scored three times in two outings against the Canaries last season.

Norwich will be without influential midfielder Robert Snodgrass with a knee injury but Gary Hooper has scored in each of the last two games, and the home side will be looking for the ex-Celtic man to find the net again as they bid to leapfrog the visitors in the table.
