Southampton v Norwich City live stream, Friday 25 February, 8pm GMT
Norwich will be looking to boost their survival hopes when they take on Southampton in the Friday night game.
Dean Smith’s side have plenty of work to do if they are to avoid relegation to the Championship. Back-to-back defeats by Manchester City (opens in new tab) and Liverpool (opens in new tab) were to be expected, but the Canaries will be keen to bounce back as quickly as possible. Norwich (opens in new tab) are now five points adrift of safety, and they have played more games than most of their relegation rivals too.
The problem for Smith is that his team have struggled at both ends of the field. Norwich have scored the fewest goals (15) and conceded the second-most (53) in the division. They have found the back of the net in four of their last five outings, though, so Southampton (opens in new tab)’s backline could be tested here.
The Saints are in fine form, having lost only one of their last nine matches. A routine 2-0 triumph over Everton (opens in new tab) last time out kept Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men in the top half of the table, and they will draw confidence from an excellent home record: Southampton have lost only once in front of their own fans this term.
The hosts will have to make do without Alex McCarthy and Lyanco. Romain Perraud has contracted Covid-19 and will also miss out, so Kyle Walker-Peters will continue at left-back with Tino Livramento on the right side of the defence. Nathan Tella will need to be assessed in the run-up to kick-off.
Norwich will be unable to call upon the services of Adam Idah and Andrew Omobamidele for the trip to St Mary’s. Tim Krul is available, though, and Lukas Rupp and Jakob Sorensen are set to be involved in some capacity. Norwich won the reverse fixture in November and are seeking their first double of the campaign.
Kick-off is at 8pm GMT on Friday 25 February, and UK viewers can watch live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League (opens in new tab). See below for international broadcast options.

Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar (opens in new tab) love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more.

NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps
A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.
Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price
It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
