Norwich are scheduled to host Arsenal on Boxing Day, aiming for an unlikely result to ease relegation fears.
Despite a promising start to his tenure at Carrow Road, Dean Smith has seen his side really struggle of late. Now sitting at the foot of the Premier League table and without a victory in five attempts, three defeats on the bounce - including a measly 2-0 loss to Aston Villa last time out - have spelt real danger for the Canaries.
Things don't get easier on Sunday either. In order to give their fans something to cheer about, the hosts will have to overcome a high-flying Arsenal side who have won their previous four in all competitions and occupy a place inside the league's top four.
Here's how Smith could line up on the day.
1. Goalkeeper & Defenders
Tim Krul (GK) - Played every minute of Norwich's Premier League campaign thus far - give him a medal - and has, in fairness, managed three clean sheets.
Max Aarons (RB) - Given his undoubted potential, the 21-year-old has somewhat disappointed this term - he's a stalwart in the side, however.
Ozan Kabak (CB) - The Turkey international has been passed fit for this one, having previously been considered a doubt.
Ben Gibson (CB) - Central defence is one of Smith's most heavily-hit areas, so Gibson should be in line for a seventh appearance in eight outings here.
Brandon Williams (LB) - Has been an ever-present under Smith - apart from missing Norwich's game against parent club Manchester United - and will surely continue as Arsenal visit.
Billy Gilmour (CM) - Has started all but one game since Smith took charge at Carrow Road and should be in line to feature once more.
Jacob Sorensen (CM) - Could make a third consecutive start after Mathias Normann was further ruled out with an injury setback.
Kenny McLean (CM) - Hasn't missed a game since the opening day and will continue at the heart of the side for Norwich's Boxing Day match-up.
Przemyslaw Placheta (RW) - Was one of his side's brighter sparks against Villa last time out - not saying much - and should be set for a third successive start.
Teemu Pukki (ST) - Pukki is responsible for 62.5% of the Canaries' Premier League goals this term; there's only one option up top.
Todd Cantwell (LW) - Put in an atrocious showing against Villa but, despite Adam Idah and Kieran Dowell waiting in the wings, could be afforded another opportunity here.
