Head coach Daniel Farke has opted to make two changes to his starting XI as Norwich City take on in-form Leicester in the Premier League this afternoon.

Todd Cantwell comes in for Onel Hernandez in attack, having come close to grabbing an equaliser after replacing the Cuban winger during the second half of last weekend's 2-1 home loss to Sheffield United.

The other change comes in central midfield, where Tom Trybull comes back in for Mario Vrancic, who drops to the bench alongside Hernandez.

The second placed hosts are unchanged from their 4-1 win at Aston Villa last Saturday, with former Canaries star James Maddison continuing in support of the division's top scorer Jamie Vardy.

NORWICH (4-2-3-1): Krul; Aarons, Zimmermann, Godfrey, Byram; Tettey (C), Trybull; Buendia, McLean, Cantwell; Pukki. Subs: Fahrmann (GK), Lewis, Amadou, Vrancic, Hernandez, Stiepermann, Srbeny

LEICESTER (4-3-1-2): Schmeichel (C); Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Praet, Ndidi, Tielemans; Maddison; Vardy, Ihaenacho. Subs: Ward (GK), Justin, Morgan, Gray, Albrighton, Barnes, Perez
