Norwich V Stoke - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.Canaries set to be unchangedNorwich boss Alex Neil has no new injury concerns ahead of the Premier League game against Stoke at Carrow Road on Saturday.The Canaries are likely to stick with the same starting line-up that achieved a 3-1 victory at Sunderland last weekend as they look to take their first home points of the new campaign.The clash with Stoke comes too soon for both defender Martin Olsson (shoulder) and forward Kyle Lafferty (knee) but both are set to return to contention ahead of their next league outing at Southampton while Ricky van Wolfswinkel may yet feature having scored for the under-21 side in midweek.Norwich will be confident of picking up their first points in front of their own fans after losing to Crystal Palace on the opening day."The players deserve all the plaudits that they're getting at the moment, but the Sunderland game is done and we need to move on to the next one," Neil said."We played really well again

I thought we played really well in the first game against Crystal Palace, albeit we didn't get a result

I think the players will take a lot of confidence from the manner with which we played, and the fact that we won the game so convincingly."We want to make sure that our home form is good, and hopefully we can start that on Saturday."Stoke manager Mark Hughes is encouraged by what he has seen from his team so far this season, despite it only yielding a single point.The Potters opened their 2015-16 Barclays Premier League campaign with a 1-0 home loss to Liverpool, then fought back from 2-0 down at half-time to draw 2-2 at Tottenham last weekend.Hughes said: "In early-season games, ideally you want maximum points."But you take encouragement from the level of performance you're able to produce."Certainly against Liverpool we deserved something, and at Spurs, we should perhaps have had maximum points."So in terms of performance, we are quite happy

Results-wise, we feel we should probably have more points on the board, but that will come if we keep the level of performances that we've produced up to this point."We're encouraged by what we have done in the first two games, certainly."Regarding the comeback at Spurs, Hughes added: "We need to build on that."For the second 45 minutes we were excellent - if we can replicate what we produced in that second half then we'll be more than happy because it was a top-level performance."Stoke now have B#12million record signing Xherdan Shaqiri available and another playmaker, Bojan Krkic, back fit after long-term injury.Record signing Shaqiri can now be selected after a one-game ban denied him his debut in the Tottenham match last Saturday - the same day Bojan completed 90 minutes for the Potters' under-21s side as he stepped up his recovery from a long-term knee injury.Norwich target Jon Walters is expected to be available despite having recently felt ill, but there is considerable competition for places these days in the Stoke attack.Meanwhile, defender Marc Wilson could make his maiden first-team appearance of the season having shaken off an ankle complaint.Striker Peter Odemwingie (hamstring) is still sidelined along with defender Ryan Shawcross (back)
