Crystal Palace striker Connor Wickham could make his first appearance since 1 March after returning to training following a thigh injury.
Yohan Cabaye is also fit to return after missing last week, but Emmanuel Adebayor remains a doubt with a knock.
Russell Martin is expected to be fit for Norwich after a minor knock ruled him out of the 3-2 victory against Newcastle last Saturday.
The Canaries’ only definite absentee is Alex Tettey who has a long-term injury.
MOTD COMMENTATOR’S NOTES
John Motson: “On New Year’s Day, Palace lay fifth in the table, 10 places above Norwich, but their run of 14 games without a victory has seen them plummet down the table. Now just three points separate these teams and that gap could disappear on Saturday.
“While the Eagles continue to search for an elusive league win in 2016, the Canaries’ spirits will be high after getting two wins from two, just when they needed them.
“However, Norwich have lost six of their last seven away games, while Palace have lost six on the bounce at Selhurst Park and I see this being a low-scoring relegation scrap, decided by one goal.
“Expect a real battle between two teams still desperately scrambling for points.”
WHAT THE MANAGERS SAY
Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew: “Our season is in the balance, it could still be a great season for us but we need to get some points in this league to get into a healthier position.
“There is a real determination from the group to get our league position healthier.
“We are actually closer to mid-table than we are to the bottom three so we can still finish strongly and that is what we want to do.”
Norwich manager Alex Neil: “We’ve found a good balance now between attacking and defending, that’s something I’ve been speaking about throughout the season.
“I think we’re at a stage now where we’re relatively comfortable with our game and everybody is enjoying it.
“But all we’ve done really is give ourselves a good opportunity to get ourselves out of the situation we were in. These next two games in particular are ones where we really need to force that home.”
Norwich picked up a fantastic win over Newcastle last time out and have now taken seven points from their past three games.
But the Eagles are a better team than their form suggests and I think it is finally going to be their week to end that awful run, put some daylight between themselves and the bottom four and throw Norwich back into the thick of the relegation battle.
