The Norwich vs Brentford live stream is likely to prove crucial in the two teams’ respective bids to stay in the Premier League. Both are in need of points. And fast.
The home side lost to 2-0 to Southampton in their last Premier League match and are rock bottom of the table going into this latest round of fixtures. The visitors, meanwhile, have only won once in the league this year and are now perilously close to the drop zone.
Andrew Omobamidele and Adam Idah are both long-term absentees for Norwich City. Furthermore, Max Aaron and Ozan Kabak are both still out following recent injuries. Captain Grant Hanley was suspended for the Canaries’ midweek defeat to Liverpool in the FA Cup but is now able to return, and Brandon Williams has been passed fit to play.
Brentford did not have a midweek FA Cup tie, having been knocked out unceremoniously by Everton in the previous round. Given they have picked up just one of the last 24 points available, they must be hoping the clear week will give them some benefit over their opponents, who had to fit in the match against Liverpool.
Midfielder Christian Eriksen made his emotional debut for the Bees last weekend, returning to the football pitch eight months after suffering a cardiac arrest whilst playing for Denmark at Euro 2020. Despite some glimpses of his quality, Eriksen’s presence could not prevent Newcastle from cruising to a 0-2 win on that occasion. He will be hoping to have a big impact for his new team in the remaining games and makes his first start for Brentford today. Striker Ivan Toney returned from injury against Newcastle and keeps his place here, but Josh Dasilva will be absent for Brentford as he serves a suspension following his red card in that match.
The Norwich vs Brentford live stream will see Canaries boss Dean Smith take on his former club. He managed the London side between 2015 and 2018, in many ways beginning their journey to the Premier League by building an entertaining team on a small budget. His current employers have the reputation of being something of a yo-yo club, bouncing between the top tier and the Championship. With just 17 points from 26 games played, they are at increased risk of dropping down a division once again.
Here's how they line up:
Norwich: Krul, Byram, Gibson, Hanley, Williams, Gilmour, Normann, McLean, Rashica, Teemu Pukki, Sargent.
Brentford: Raya, Henry, Pinnock, Ajer, Jansson, Canos, Nørgaard, Eriksen, Janelt, Toney, Mbeumo.
Both of these teams desperately need points and to start a run of form to help them stay in the Premier League. Who can get an advantage over their relegation rivals? Find out by watching the Norwich vs Brentford live stream.
