Swansea vs Norwich preview
Last Updated: 23/11/18 1:40pm
Swansea midfielder Tom Carroll will miss the visit of Sky Bet Championship leaders Norwich because of a hip problem.
Bersant Celina has been carrying a groin problem, but should be available, along with centre-back Joe Rodon (ankle).
Striker Wilfried Bony continues to build up his fitness after making a long-awaited return from a serious knee injury as a late substitute at Bolton. Midfielder Luciano Narsingh is expected to return to full training next week after a hamstring problem.

Norwich head to Wales on the back of five successive Championship wins, which have put them two points clear at the top. Canaries boss Daniel Farke reported no fresh injury concerns from the international break, during which he and some of the squad were away on a warm-weather training camp in Tampa, Florida.
Defender Jamal Lewis has shaken off a minor hamstring problem so will travel, as will midfielder Ben Marshall (hamstring). Captain Grant Hanley is set to feature for the under-23s as he steps up his recovery from a thigh injury. Scotland midfielder Kenny McLean (ankle), Louis Thompson (shoulder), forward Carlton Morris (knee) and winger Matt Jarvis (ankle/knee) also continue their rehabilitation.
Swansea are looking to win back-to-back league games against Norwich for the first time since April 2009, when Roberto Martinez was in charge of the club.
Norwich have only won two of their 12 away league games against Swansea in the second tier (D2 L8), with their last such win coming in March 1962 (3-0).
Swansea have seen just 32 goals scored in their games in the Championship this season (19 for, 13 against) - only Middlesbrough (27) have had fewer.
Norwich have won their last five games in the Championship, and are looking to record six consecutive wins in league competition for the first time since March 2015.
Since making his Championship debut in February 2018, only Neal Maupay (18) and Lewis Grabban (17) have scored more goals in the competition than Swansea striker Oli McBurnie (16).
Norwich striker Teemu Pukki has scored a brace in each of his last two Championship appearances - the last player to score 2+ goals in three consecutive games in the competition was Scott Hogan in May 2016 (for Brentford).
Swansea are developing very nicely under Graham Potter. They're a relegated club but are virtually unrecognisable from the side that played in the Premier League last season.
This will be a tough trip for Norwich, who have flown up to the top of the table on the back of a remarkable run of form under Daniel Farke. I would back them to keep that going on Saturday.
David Prutton predicts: 2-3 (33/1 with Sky Bet)
