Same again for me, hopefully Neves can avoid a yellow as he's one away from a ban now, we need him in every game.

They won on Saturday but they weren't very good from what I could tell off highlights/reports. Two absolute ricks by the Saints keeper and not much else.

Keep the run going before we hit the horrible set of December fixtures.

Unchanged. We don’t have any other options. Podence has been hit and miss but he played well and he’s contributed goals and assists in minimal minutes, the other two have contributed nothing in end product in far more minutes.

The only thing I'd say about playing the same team is Norwich went with a straight midfield 3 on Saturday so we need to be mindful of being overran again

They had 37% possession against Southampton's midfield 2 who are no more mobile than ours.

Pukki and Cantwell aren’t the fastest (don’t know anything about Rashica), so push high and condense the field. Then Saiss Kilman are basically midfielders and the WBs should have the freedom of the pitch. The quality on the ball of Neves, Moutinho, RAN, Semedo and the back 3 should see them chasing shadows

A big 8 days coming up from Saturday . Norwich , Burnley and then Liverpool . We need something from the first two - at least 4 points .

Lots of posters on here pre West Ham saying that we would get well beaten . Now there is no one on here saying anything really . For me it's a very tricky one .
Playing on the front foot has to be the way to go - we might concede , but should score more than them if we go with an attack minded focus . Press high and keep them pushed back .
Only a few short weeks ago they conceded 7 .
We need the 3 points a lot more than people think .

Not much to say I suppose, we should get 4 points from those 2 games but we all know football doesn't always go according to form. Last week was great but we've shown so far this season that we are inconsistent ( as are most others outside top 3) Norwich will have new manager bounce but whether they can sustain that from last week is unlikely. I'm not making any predictions. As I've said I'm waiting till after Christmas before I get wildly optimistic.

Think we will win both games. Burnley who would have caused us problems previously won't have the space to pick up second balls over our midfield 2 as the space is condensed. We have been really solid from set pieces also which negates another issue. Norwich are awful and Dean Smith is an awful manager, I'd be really disappointed if we couldn't beat them.

We are a better side, but our results away from home have been better than the performances and were pretty poor in our last away game. That makes me hopeful rather than confident
