Norwich predicted XI: Sheffield Wednesday (H)

  Norwich predicted XI: Sheffield Wednesday (H) Norwich City are looking to end their run of games without a win as they host Sheffield Wednesday at Carrow Road on Saturday. The Canaries have gone eight games without a win in all competitions, with their last win coming against Ipswich in October in the East Anglian derby. Since that victory, Norwich have suffered six defeats and two draws in their subsequent eight matches. Draws against Barnsley and Preston were meagre compensation to losses against Arsenal, Wolves, Derby, Nottingham Forest, Bolton and Cardiff. Last time out Norwich lost 3-1 to Cardiff in Wales, after Marco Stiepermann had put the Canaries in front before half-time. Head coach Daniel Farke has had since last Friday to think about how he is going to turn Norwich’s form around, with something desperately needing to improve. Alex Pritchard could be in line for his first start of the season, after being a substitute in the previous two matches.

  Lionel Richie axes Las Vegas show to help family escape from wildfire threat Lionel Richie has been forced to scrap a show in Las Vegas, so he can help family members escape from wildfires that have lit up southern California. The soul star took to Twitter on Wednesday (06Dec17) to alert fans to the cancellation of his show at The Axis at Planet Hollywood, explaining he was helping with evacuations back home in Los Angeles. "Due to the devastating California Wildfires, and helping family evacuate to a safer place, I unfortunately have to cancel my show tonight," he wrote. "I look forward to returning to the stage this weekend and performing for my fans" Meanwhile, production on TV show S.W.A.T. has been shut down for a second day because of the fires and the poor air quality, and popular Los Angeles landmark The Getty Center has also been closed due to a nearby blaze. Chrissy Teigen and Kim Kardashian have offered their support to the Californians fighting to save their homes as wildfires burn through the southern part of the state after learning hundreds of thousands of people have been evacuated. Three major fires began on Tuesday (05Dec17) and high winds sparked others overnight, and, like many locals, the stars are glued to TV news reports about the fires and evacuation alerts. Teigen writes: "never thought I’d get to actually play what I thought was a hypothetical game of what would you grab if there were a fire. so far all I have is Luna, some limited edition Oreos and my spike tv award.

It means seven wins in eight – including last Saturday's 0-0 draw with Sunderland – for their boss Nuno, whose compatriot and Wednesday counterpart Carlos Carvalhal looked on from the stands due to a touchline ban as his team made it six games without victory.
