Norwich City will aim to claim their first win of the season when hosting Bournemouth by doing EFL Cup second round on Tuesday evening.
The Canaries have made a winless start to life in the Premier League, while the Cherries are emerging as early promotion candidates from the championship.
Prediction for this match
No points, no goals and eight goals conceded in two league games are not good reading for Norwich, but with the caveat, of course, that their opening games were played against Liverpool and Manchester City.
A 5-0 loss to the champions on Saturday was followed by a 3-0 loss to the Reds and next a game against Leicester City will end a very tough first 14 days of the big time.
Daniel Farke So hopes that the EFL Cup will bring some recovery, but the Canaries have not made it into the third round since 2018.
The winners of 1962 and 1985 were eliminated by opponents in a lower division in two of the last three seasons in the form of Portsmouth and Crawley Town.
Meanwhile, Bournemouth have made it to at least the third round in each of the past seven seasons and made it to the quarter-finals in 2015, 2018 and 2019.
The cherries beat MK Dons 5-0 in the first round this year David Brooks (two), Dominic Solanke, Philipp Billing and Christian Saydee all come on the scoresheet.
In the championship Scott Parker‘s team is still undefeated after four games with two wins and two draws; Both wins came away from home.
On Saturday Bournemouth led Blackpool 2-0 at halftime thanks to a brace from Solanke, but conceded twice in four minutes of the second half to take just one point.
The South Coast team won both games against Norwich in the championship last season and threw the Canaries out of this competition three years ago.

Daniel Farke will weigh up whether he wants to use this game to give players who have not previously played in the Premier League his confidence in first choice or hand chances.
It is likely that the summer signing Angus Gunn will make his debut in goal while his new signing Josh Sargent could also get a chance.
Christoph Zimmermann missed the loss to Manchester City due to illness, so it is doubtful and Przemyslaw Placheta continues to recover from symptoms of the coronavirus.
Junior Stanislas suffered a hamstring injury against Blackpool on Saturday so will not be available for Bournemouth – Ben Pearson or Emiliano Marcondes should replace him in midfield.
There could be a signing opportunity Orjan Nyland in the target; the Norwegian spent the first half of that year at Norwich but didn’t play a game.
Jefferson Lerma is still exposed while Jack Stacey, Lewis Cook and Steve Cook are injured.
Norwich City possible starting line-up:
Gunn; Mumba, Hanley, Omobamidele, Sorensen; McLean, Gilmour, Dowell; Sargent, Idah, Tzolis
Bournemouth possible starting line-up:
Nyland; Mepham, Rossi, Kelly, Davis; Pearson, Kilkenny, Billing; Brooks, Solanke, Anthony
Probability: Norwich City 0-1 Bournemouth
If Norwich decides to rotate on Carrow Road, we think Bournemouth could move forward at their expense. The Cherries have got off to a strong start to the championship season and will aim to maintain momentum against a Canary Islands side shocked after losing to Liverpool and Manchester City.
