It could be argued that the international break came at a perfect time for Norwich City manager Alex Neil, as a number of his key players had picked up short-term injuries. Two weeks of rest and recovery will likely be enough time for most of those absentees to be ready for selection, giving Neil much-needed options in certain positions.
Summer signing Alex Pritchard looks set for a return to first-team duty with Norwich City, after a sparkling showing for the Canaries’ under-23s.
The £8million capture from Tottenham set up Carlton Morris for the first of City’s goals in a 2-0 win over Valencia U23s last night, in a Premier League International Cup group game at Carrow Road.
Longer term injuries, such as the ones suffered by Martin Olsson and Alex Pritchard, may need a while longer to get them back up to full match fitness.
