But while the Magpies have taken flight since their impressive moves in the January transfer window, the Canaries remain grounded at the bottom of the division.
The hopes of Dean Smith’s side remaining in the top tier are receding week by week and they head into their home clash with Newcastle sat eight points from safety with just six games remaining.
By contrast, the Magpies travel to Carrow Road looking for a fourth consecutive win after they collected maximum points from a trio of home games against Crystal Palace, Leicester City and Wolves.
However, Norwich may be able to take some hope from the fact Eddie Howe’s side have lost their last three away games and are without a competitive win at Carrow Road in their last eight visits.
Here is everything you need to know ahead of Saturday’s game.
What is the latest team news for both sides?
Newcastle will once again be without Kieran Trippier and Callum Wilson as they continue their rehabilitation from injury and Ryan Fraser also remains in the treatment room with the hamstring injury he suffered against Wolves.
Magpies boss Eddie Howe admitted the Scottish international faces a “race against time” to be fit before the end of the season.
Ozan Kabak, Adam Idah and Andrew Omobamidele will all miss out for Norwich and USA international Joshua Sargent is a doubt for the game.
What happened in their last meeting?
Newcastle battled their way to a deserved point in the reverse fixture in November despite having Ciaran Clark sent-off inside the opening ten minutes.
The Republic of Ireland defender was dismissed for hauling down Teemu Pukki as the Finn raced in on goal, forcing Eddie Howe into an unplanned early change.
Despite their numerical disadvantage, the Magpies went a goal up when Callum Wilson netted from the penalty spot on the hour-mark - but they had to settle for a point as Pukki crashed home an equaliser with just over ten minutes remaining.
What are both managers saying ahead of Saturday’s game?
Norwich City manager Dean Smith: "We played them in November time and we were in similar positions at their place.
“Obviously the January window they've spent big and bought in some big players, really good players at this level.
"With that, they've gone on a really good run, especially at home. They've won six on the spin and they'll want to try to improve their away record but we're fighting for our lives now as well.”
Newcastle United boss Eddie Howe: "We will be committed to try and win every fixture.
"It's our duty. I take that seriously and I know my players will.
"Whoever we are playing home or away, we have to give our all so I can assure everyone of that."
What are the latest odds ahead of the game?
