Cantwell and Deeney on the bench as Norwich host Watford

For the second match in a row, Todd Cantwell (£4.7m) finds himself on the Norwich City bench.

The budget midfielder enjoyed a long run of starts for the Canaries in the first 10 Gameweeks of the campaign while Onel Hernandez (£5.3m) was out injured.

With the Cuban fully recovered, he starts against Watford, making his second start of the 2019/20.

It makes for an unchanged Norwich team from the one that lost 2-0 at Brighton.

Daniel Farke went with a 4-2-3-1 on that occasion but it appears as if he has deployed his troops in a 4-1-4-1 tonight.

Tom Trybull (£4.5m) looks to be operating in the holding role with Marco Stiepermann (£5.3m) and Kenny McLean (£4.9m) in the middle of the midfield four.

As ever, Teemu Pukki (£6.8m) starts up-front after another week of mass sales among Fantasy managers.

Meanwhile, Watford’s matchday squad has Troy Deeney (£6.2m) in it for the first time since Gameweek 2.

The centre-forward has been recovering with a long-term injury and is fit enough only for the bench.

Quique Sanchez Flores has stuck with his favoured three-man defence, which has produced better performances in recent weeks.

Craig Cathcart (£4.4m), Christian Kabasele (£4.3m) and Craig Dawson (£4.8m) make up the trio in Gameweek 12, with Jose Holebas (£4.7m) and Daryl Janmaat (£4.3m) on the flanks of midfield.

There does appear to be a slight tweak to the usual 3-5-2 deployed under Flores of late, with Will Hughes (£5.5m) pushing out of the midfield to sit as a number 10 behind Roberto Pereyra (£5.6m) and Gerard Deulofeu (£6.1m).

Norwich City XI (4-1-4-1): Krul; Lewis, Godfrey, Tettey, Aarons; Trybull; Hernandez, Stiepermann, McLean, Buendía; Pukki.

Watford XI (3-4-1-2): Foster; Cathcart, Kabasele, Dawson; Holebas, Doucouré, Capoue, Janmaat; Hughes; Pereyra, Deulofeu.

        Forgot deadline. Seem to have benched TAA when setting preliminary team early in the week ... He’ll come in if Mount doesn’t play.

        If forgotten what I was thinking. Hope that madness had some reason behind it!

                      Do they not have phines? Why are they not scouting out this info in exchange for your chauffer service?

                        Gomes seems to be fine.

                    Gooner, captained Vardy and benched Soyuncu because I've kept Aubameyang in the end. This match will be extremely hard to watch..

                      Just hope for a high scoring game

                        Yeah, should be very entertaining for neutral fans and FPL players!

                      Either:
                      A) Arsenal win
                      B) Arsenal draw
                      C) Arsenal lose

                      A is good for you; C is good for you as Emery comes closer to a sacking. B - you haven't loss and Emery sees that as a positive anyway 😆

                    Just fancy Mane to haul against city. Pep has accused him of diving and will want to prove a point.

                      agree

                      He would have been perfect for Pep's Barcelona team so.

                    Indecision meant missing the deadline. Still no Leicester in my squad. Going to get punished this gw, I feel.

                    Hoping for some differential magic.
