Meet the opposition

Cardiff City are three games into their first season in the Premier League since 2014 following their promotion last year.

Manager Neil Warnock guided the Bluebirds to promotion after they achieved a second-placed finish in the Sky Bet Championship behind title winners Wolves.

From their three league games so far, they've picked up two points. An opening day 2-0 defeat at Bournemouth has been followed by two successive goalless draws against Newcastle United and Huddersfield Town.

In the summer, Cardiff managed to bring in six new faces including Harry Arter (Bournemouth) and Victor Camarasa (Real Betis) on loan.

From the Championship, Warnock welcomed Bobby Reid (Bristol City), Greg Cunningham (Preston North End), Alex Smithies (QPR) and former City man Josh Murphy.

The match marks an early reunion between the Canaries and academy graduate Murphy. The winger, 23, made 103 appearances in five seasons at Carrow Road.

Cardiff: 1 Neil Etheridge, 2 Lee Peltier, 3 Joe Bennett, 4 Sean Morrison, 5 Bruno Manga, 6 Jazz Richards, 7 Harry Arter, 8 Joe Ralls, 9 Danny Ward, 10 Kenneth Zohore, 11 Josh Murphy, 13 Callum Paterson, 14 Bobby Reid, 16 Matthew Connolly, 17 Aron Gunnarsson, 18 Greg Cunningham, 19 Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, 20 Loic Damour, 21 Victor Camarasa, 22 Sol Bamba, 24 Gary Madine, 33 Junior Hoilett
