Norwich are the current leaders in England’s second division and are looking to continue their push for promotion. They are two points above Leeds and four points in front of Sheffield United. The Canaries have won five out of their last six matches, and it will be difficult for Sheffield United to catch up with them, although we have seen that in the Championship anything can happen.
Their opponents on Friday are Swansea City who were in the Premier League last season but are currently sitting in 14th place in the Championship. The Swans have been very inconsistent this season and can’t sustain good form for a longer period. They lost their last three away games, and they will have to pull something extraordinary if they want to avoid defeat against the league leaders on Friday.

Norwich performed great against Millwall in the last round, so the manager looks unlikely to make any changes. Midfielders Alex Tettey and Mario Vrancic are fit and available for selection, so Daniel Farke will have some decisions to make. Matthew Jarvis and Louis Thompson are out with long-term injuries.
Swansea also won their previous fixture which was against Bolton, so Graham Potter probably won’t change much. Wayne Routledge could be rotated for Bersant Celina, while Leroy Fer (midfielder) and Joe Rodon (defender) are out injured.
Norwich haven’t been defeated in 21 of their last 23 fixtures which is an impressive stat and shows why they are top of the league. They have scored three or more times in eight out of their last nine home games. Their opponents Swansea are on the opposite end of the spectrum. The visitors lost their previous three fixtures away from home and conceded two or more goals in them. The Swans look safe from relegation and have no chance of reaching the playoff spots, so their season is practically over. Norwich want to finish first and will want to get all three points from this game. The fact that Norwich won convincingly the last times these two teams met leads me to believe that The Canaries will secure the win at home. The odds at Unibet for a Norwich win are decent.Prediction: Norwich to win @ 7/10 at Unibet
