Galatasaray face bitter rivals Fenerbahce at the Turk Telekom Arena knowing a victory will take them top of the league and send the visitors into the relegation.

Fenerbahce are in dreadful form and find themselves in 15th place 10 games into the campaign.

The Yellow Canaries will be without a manager after Phillip Cocu was sacked last week.

The Dutchman’s assistant coach Erwin Koeman will take charge.

Koeman has not made any surprise selections. The back-four and keeper remain the same.

Eighteen-year-old Eljif Elmas starts in defence alongside Jailson.

Leicester City loanee Islam Slimani is out suspended, meanwhile Swansea City loanee Andre Ayew does however, get the nod.

Everton loanee Henry Onyekuru has meanwhile made a return for Galatasaray.

The winger was not expected back for another few weeks but has recovered sooner than expected.

Stoke City loanee Badou Ndiaye will start in midfield alongside Ryan Donk.

Eighteen-year-old centre-back Ozan Kabak has got the nod in the defence alongside Serdar Aziz as his centre-back partner.

The Lions have the best home record in the league winning four and drawing one.
