STARTING XIs: Tettey and Krul return for City as Stiepermann misses out at Bournemouth
Norwich City boss Daniel Farke has made two changes to his starting XI for this afternoon’s Premier League clash at Bournemouth.
Fit-again number one Tim Krul returns in goal, as expected, with Michael McGovern on the bench but the one slight surprise is the omission of Marco Stiepermann.
Alex Tettey, also back from injury, comes into the City team in midfield and Scotland international Kenny McLean is pushed forward into Stiepermann's usual position.
Tom Trybull and Onel Hernandez are both on the bench, after also recovering from their injuries which have seen them both miss significant chunks of the season so far, replacing Patrick Roberts, Adam Idah and Akin Famewo among the substitutes.

Bournemouth make three changes from the team which started their 1-0 defeat at Arsenal ahead of the international break, with Adam Smith replacing youngster Jack Stacey at right-back.
Lewis Cook replaces Jefferson Lerman in midfield and Scotland winger Ryan Fraser starts on the left in place of Josh King, who starts on the bench.
