Rottweiler stuff from Sky’s Patrick Davidson to Paul Pogba 

re Muhammad Ali.

“This almost seems unfair, but I see a bit of him in you.”

Poggers: “I hope so, I learned a bit from him, how to be confident, how to be myself.”

Nice feature on Sky

where black footballers talk about their heroes. Kalvin Phillips talks about LeBron James. “He has had difficulties in his upbringing, with his mother and father, and that is similar to mine.”

Dominic Calvert-Lewin seems an excellent guy. As does Kalvin, I might say.

Looks a bit grim!

Dear old Efan Ekoku

is on pundit detail at Carrow Road. He scored the winner against Leeds in 1993 here. He was a boyhood fan of Leeds, he says. I didn’t know that.

This match

is on Sky Sports and kicks off at 2pm. Here’s a piece on a Sky ledge.

Changes

I make that just one change for Leeds, Kalvin P coming into the midfield, Kilch out.

For Norwich, Giannoulis, Lees-Melou and Gibson make way for Rashica, Dowell and Omobamidele.

1:03PM

Leeds

are in 18th place.

Norwich are flat bottom and you will do very well to find someone who thinks the Canaries can stay up this season.

Dave Jones!

has got a “haunting” and a “nightmare” into his Halloween intro. Solid.

Talking of keepers

12:30PM

Are we allowing ‘The Rob Green Derby’?

I think not, all things considered.

12:25PM

Fair bit of wind at Carrow Road

Judging from this. Gusting 40mph winds, showers. Fairly mild though.

But they’ll get a game on, unlike a lot of teams further down the pyramid this weekend. Looks like a spate of abandonments due to waterlogged pitches etc.

Norwich welcome Leeds

Norwich boss Daniel Farke has challenged his players to “show some pride” in the wake of their embarrassing 7-0 drubbing by Chelsea.

Norwich remain bottom of the Premier League and without a win following last weekend’s thrashing at Stamford Bridge.

City’s next five fixtures come against clubs who began this weekend in the bottom half of the table, starting at home to Leeds today.

Farke believes his players are fully focused on upcoming tasks rather than dwelling on a harsh lesson at the hands of Thomas Tuchel’s European champions.

“It’s always tough after conceding seven goals, it’s a result that hurts a lot and it’s pretty painful,” he said. “The first days are unbelievably difficult.

“We needed a few days to pick ourselves up but since the middle of the week I got the feeling that we’re not looking too much back, it’s more like focus on what we face in the future.

“The new future is Leeds and everyone is really focused on showing a response after losing a game 7-0.

“If you’re not there with your best performance, something like this [the Chelsea result] can then sometimes happen.

“But it’s also a bit like, I want to show some pride and also want a response, and that’s the task.”

Leeds have also struggled for form this term.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men travel to Carrow Road with just a single success from nine games and placed five points above their hosts.

Farke said: “We know that Leeds have done overall fantastic in the last two years.

“Perhaps not the best weeks for them in the bigger picture but we’re still pretty respectful.

“We also know in the home games against the teams that are also in the bottom half of the table we want to win points.

“We know when we are there with our best performance we definitely have a chance on Sunday and sure we want to be there with a top performance.”

Norwich will be without suspended defender Ben Gibson following his red card at Chelsea.

On-loan midfielder Billy Gilmour is back in contention for after he was ineligible to face his parent club but Todd Cantwell, Sam Byram and Christoph Zimmermann remain unavailable due to injury.
