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.

    What was the highest percentage of Pukkis ownership lol?

    1. Gudjohnsen
      • 2 Years
      6 days, 19 hours ago

      48,9%

    2. Sun Jihai

      40%+ from memory!

    Norwich can't score 11against 10 at home against the bottom side

    1. Jullepuu

      Yeah it's bad but I think that Watford will still finnish mid table.

    How did this useless bunch beat man city

      Otamendi.

    3. tambourineman

      Otamendi and Stones

      1. Bakra
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        6 days, 19 hours ago

        Otamendi is up there with Fred for my vote for the most overpaid footballer.

        1. Rainer
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          6 days, 19 hours ago

          Otamendi was actually good in 17/18 at least.

          Fred should have stuck to being the mascot.

        2. Monkey Hanger

          Has to be Sanchez when at Utd.

    Your getting sacked in the morning. Norwich are awful. I`m certain Farke will be gone soon even with their injuries. To not be able to create much at home to 10 man Watford is shocking. Why take Buendia off who is their best player.
    Wish I had gone for a Watford win in my Predict the score mini league!!!!!
    Pukki Funeral well under way.

    1. SkekTek (AKA: AnzhiBabakin)

      Farke won't be sacked imo. They are a sensible stable lot there

    Did not play Janmaat and I am not even surprised that there are some points on the bench currently. Norwich seems clueless which is a shame since the start of the season was okay for them. If Watford keeps cs I guess I need to hope that Mount is out.

    1. Tomerick
      • 5 Years

      Should’ve listened man

    Pukki / Cant write great fir a few weeks

    It’d be foolish to expect their run to last for the whole season

    I’m very glad I got them in when I did

    And just as glad I got rid of them

    I remember reading once that teams would frink champagne

    1. james 101
      • 7 Years
      6 days, 19 hours ago

      ...drink champagne when they got ballotelli in.

      Then again then he left.

      • 3 Years

      Budget?

    3. Fred54
      • 4 Years
      6 days, 19 hours ago

      You need 50 Pukki candy to evolve him into Lukaku.

        How much Lukaku candy till I can get a Drogba?

        1. Fred54

          No candy, need Mourinho Stone.
