Norwich City may be focussed on trying to stay in the Premier League, but on Saturday their attentions turn to the FA Cup.

After beating Charlton in the third round they travel to Wolves this weekend, as they look to keep their dreams of lifting the trophy alive.

Here is the starting XI Dean Smith seems most likely to opt for at Molineux...


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Angus Gunn

Angus Gunn (GK) - With Tim Krul likely out with a shoulder injury, Angus Gunn – who picked up a clean sheet against Watford last time out – will start.

Max Aarons (RB) -
Once tipped for a move to a big European club, Aarons' stock has fallen in recent times. He is still a solid operator, though.

Grant Hanley (CB) -
Hanley has recovered from a pretty shocking start to the season since Smith arrived at the club.

Ben Gibson (CB) -
Confident on the ball, Gibson is a good foil for the more robust Hanley.

Brandon Williams (LB) -
The Man Utd loanee never shirks a tackle and will be looking to impress his parent club during the tail end of the season.

2. Midfielders

Josh Sargent (RM) - Fresh off of a brace against Watford, Sargent will be hoping to add to his tally this weekend after a slow start to life in England.

Pierre Lees-Melou (CM) - Billy Gilmour and Mathias Normann returning to training adds some much-needed competition in midfield but Lees-Melou should continue there for now.

Jakob Sorensen (CM) - As above really, except his place is probably less certain.

Kenny McLean (CM) - Back in contention after a bout of Covid-19.

Milot Rashica (LM) - Rashica has not pushed on as many were hoping so far this season, only managing two Premier League assists. He did net the winner against Charlton in the third round, though.

3. Forwards
