Norwich finally picked up their first win of the season last time out (2-1 at Brentford) but Daniel Farke was shown the door and Dean Smith was handed the reigns. Smith knows he will have his work cut out as he looks to improve the worst defensive record in the league and the lowest ranked attack. At Carrow Road, the Canaries are winless since February 2020 losing nine of their last ten.
Southampton made a slow start to the season winning just one of their first seven but have since taken ten points from their next four. They seem to be kings of the odd goal victory with three of their last four success ending 1-0. Away from home, the Saints victory at Watford on their last road trip put to an end a nine-game winless record.
Norwich vs Southampton Predictions
Ralph Hasenhuttl was a manager reportedly on the Canaries shortlist and while there was no danger he would make the move from the Saints it showed the high-regard he is held in around the league. Despite losing numerous players the South Coast side keep rolling and in Adams, Armstrong and Broja they have superb fire-power. Three of their last four wins have come by one goal so back this to be the winning margin as Norwich will make it hard but will likely come up just short.
Che Adams scored a great goal for Scotland against Denmark in midweek and also bagged at Watford in his last road trip. His pace will cause Norwich huge problems and he looks worth siding with to net here.
