Norwich City are looking to stabilise their Premier League form when they take on Bournemouth this afternoon – and you can follow all the action, analysis and reaction in our Matchday Live blog.

The Canaries have had the international break to dwell on a 5-1 home defeat to Aston Villa, a third consecutive loss which left Daniel Farke's team in the Premier League relegation zone.

However, City are bolstered by a host of players returning from injury, including goalkeeper Tim Krul, defensive midfielders Alex Tettey and Tom Trybull, as well as speedy winger Onel Hernandez.

Ben Godfrey, Todd Cantwell, Jamal Lewis and Kenny McLean have all shaken off the knocks which kept them out of international contention, to make the trip to the south coast.

The Cherries sit 10th and with 11 points from their opening eight games, in their fifth successive season in the top flight under Eddie Howe.

They were held to a 2-2 draw by West Ham in their last league game and were narrowly beaten 1-0 at Arsenal ahead of the break.
