Norwich begin their summer push to avoid relegation on Friday evening with a home clash against a Southampton side with little to play for at this stage of the campaign.
The Canaries are rock bottom of the Premier League and six points adrift of safety. However, a 2-1 friendly win over Tottenham last week suggests they are up for the scrap with nine Premier League fixtures to go.
Norwich need to start winning games from the off and this fixture is certainly one that plays into manager Daniel Farke’s hands.
Saints narrowly beat Norwich 2-1 in this reverse fixture back in December though Farke’s men putting up strong resistance.
The lack of a home crowd could affect Norwich, but the incentive to escape relegation could be all the inspiration they need. With tougher opponents to come over the next few weeks, three points here could be key.

Norwich v Southampton team news
Norwich: Farke has seen a number of players return to fitness during the coronavirus break. Onel Hernandez is back from injury and could well start on Friday, while the boss also has Timm Klose and Christoph Zimmermann to choose from.
This game may be too soon for Klose, but Zimmermann could well get minutes here. Expect Alex Tettey and Kenny McLean to keep their central midfield pairing going into the summer.
Southampton: Like his counterpart Farke, Saints boss Ralph Hasenhüttl welcomes back players to full fitness for this restart. Both Nathan Redmond and Stuart Armstrong are back in action and could feature.
Redmond’s impact will be crucial on Friday as Saints look to climb far away from the bottom three. However, 22-year-old Moussa Djenepo begins a three-game suspension and won’t be available.
Our prediction: Norwich v Southampton
Norwich proved they can match up to Southampton when these sides met in December. And historically, the ‘away’ side has not won this fixture in a decade.
But what use is home advantage without the tub-thumping Carrow Road crowd? Norwich will have earmarked this match as having three-point potential when the fixture list was released last summer.
Realistically, this is anyone’s game. A draw would do neither side harm in the first game back after a long break.
Our prediction: Norwich 1-1 Southampton
