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

Norwich City host Southampton on Saturday looking to open up a nine-point gap between themselves and their opponents in the Premier League table.

The Canaries have kept themselves clear of the relegation zone for the majority of the season, and three points against the Saints would move them to the brink of Premier League safety.

It is unlikely that manager Chris Hughton will make major changes to his side after they lost 4-0 to Manchester United last week, but he could hand Kei Kamara his first start for the club.

Southampton have lost their last two Premier League matches, and that has left Mauricio Pochettino's side just three points away from the relegation zone.

The former Espanyol boss is likely to make alterations after last week's defeat to Queens Park Rangers, with Jay Rodriguez and Luke Shaw in contention to earn recalls to the starting lineup.
