Sports Mole previews Southampton's trip to Carrow Road to face Norwich City.

Norwich City host Southampton on Saturday hoping that they can secure their first Premier League victory of the season.

The Canaries have only picked up one point from their first two games, but they did net six against Bury in the Capital One Cup.

Manager Chris Hughton could hand a league debut to Johan Elmander after the Swedish forward scored twice in midweek.

Southampton have impressed during their opening fixtures of the season, picking up two wins and a draw.

Boss Mauricio Pochettino could retain the same starting lineup that picked up a point with Sunderland, meaning that new signing Pablo Osvaldo could remain on the bench.
