When is Norwich vs Newcastle, is it on TV and what time is kick-off?

Newcastle will travel to East Anglia on Saturday as they take on newly promoted Norwich City at Carrow Road.

The Magpies make the journey south looking for their first win of the season following their 1-0 defeat to Arsenal on the opening day of the campaign.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s second half strike was enough to undo Newcastle’s first half efforts and spoil Steve Bruce’s opening competitive game as Magpies boss.

With another five of last season’s top seven sides to come in their next nine matches, Newcastle know they must get a positive result this weekend against Daniel Farke’s men.

Norwich were beaten 4-1 by Liverpool on Friday but showed a lot of attacking promise at Anfield.

When is Norwich vs Newcastle?

The game will take place on Saturday, August 17, with the action getting under way at 3pm. It is one of seven Premier League games taking place on Sunday.

What are the injury concerns? Who is in the teams?

Newcastle will be without Florian Lejeune, DeAndre Yedlin, Christian Atsu and Andy Carroll through injury. Allan Saint-Maximin is rated as doubtful with a hamstring injury but Jonjo Shelvey, who was taken off against Arsenal with a slight knock,should be fit enough to return.

New signing Emil Krafth could make his Magpies debut.

Norwich will be without Christoph Zimmermann, Louis Thompson and Alex Tettey. Timm Klose is rated as doubtful but new signing Ibrahim Amadou should be fine to link up with his new team-mates.

Former Magpies goalkeeper Tim Krul and defender Grant Hanley are set to line up for Norwich against their former employers.

Norwich likely XI: Krul; Aarons, Godfrey, Hanley, Lewis; McLean, Trybull; Buendia, Stiepermann, Cantwell; Pukki

Newcastle likely XI: Dubravka; Manquillo, Schar, Lascelles, Dummett, Ritchie; Hayden, Shelvey, S.Longstaff; Almiron, Joelinton
