Norwich vs Derby: Starting Line Up Sees Gibson Debut & Buendia's Return

Emi Buendia has returned to the Norwich City team but Todd Cantwell remains out in the cold for today’s game against Derby, as Ben Gibson makes his first start in place of Everton-bound Ben Godfrey.

Buendia - who continues to be linked with Fenerbahce in Turkey - and Cantwell were left out of the 1-0 loss at Bournemouth last weekend due to head coach Daniel Farke thinking the duo had been distracted by transfer speculation.

The Argentine replaces Przemek Placheta and Marco Stiepermann returns after back trouble, in place of Kenny McLean.

Cantwell trained this week as links to Leeds continued and interest from Fulham also emerged but he isn’t involved in the final game ahead of the October 16 transfer deadline, having been left out of the latest England Under-21 squad.

The Canaries are without Placheta with a hamstring issue which is minor but likely to be enough to keep home out of Poland Under-21 duty during the international break, as well as full-back Sam Byram (hamstring) and midfielder Kieran Dowell (ankle) until January after surgery on their injuries.

NORWICH (4-2-3-1): Krul; Aarons, Zimmermann (C), Gibson, Quintilla; Rupp, Skipp; Buendia, Stiepermann, Hernandez; Pukki. Subs: McGovern (GK), Hanley, Tettey, McLean, Vrancic, Idah, Hugill

DERBY (4-2-3-1): Marshall; Byrne, Davies, Clarke, Buchanan; Shinnie, Evans; Holmes, Knight, Jozwiak; Rooney. Subs: Roos (GK), Wierik, Forsyth, Bird, Whittaker, Marriott, Hector-Ingram
