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.

        Highlighting a reckless needless challenge? Seems pretty enlightening

    This is the moment for Pukki owners, if he cant score against the 10 men of Watford in half an hour, he surely has to go?

      Pfft, he's no Jamie Richard Vardy.

      Watford have no reason not to sit in and just hold possession. Don't think this is an easy assignment at all.

    Hernandez went to the Jesus navas school of crossing

    1. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      6 days, 20 hours ago

      I have never seen a player who is allergic to scoring like Jesus Navas was. Played for City with almost 0 Goals, maybe he scored 1 or 2.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 days, 20 hours ago

        His most memorable moment is when he put in a cross and it went backwards and went out near the corner flag

    1. Rainer

      Isn’t Foster Australian?

      Southgate is pretty loyal with his selection, it took Lingard over a year of being awful to get dropped.

      When it was clear Norwich couldn't score away it was time to lose one or both. Hope they stay up but in truth they are a ragamuffin side.
