Norwich City vs Leicester City EPL betting preview

Leicester City will be hoping for a turnaround in form when they travel to Norfolk on Friday to take on Norwich City in the English Premier League.

The Foxes will fancy their chances of securing maximum points for the first time in five games, given how they’ll be going against a Canaries side stuck at the foot of the table.

Despite failing to win any of their last four games, three of which were in the Premier League, Brendan Rodgers’ side are still in pole position to qualify for the UEFA Champions League as one of the top four teams in the division.

Leicester, who suffered a 1-0 defeat against visiting Manchester City last weekend, remain third in the EPL standings on 50 points, six points above Chelsea in fourth and a staggering 29 points adrift of runaway leaders Liverpool.

Leicester’s slump coincides with a cold snap for star striker Jamie Vardy, who – after scoring 17 goals in his opening 18 EPL games this season – has failed to find the back of the net in his last seven league appearances.

Nonetheless, the Foxes will be confident ahead of their trip to Carrow Road, where the hosts have won just one of their last 10 outings in the English top flight.

Having earned promotion back into the Premier League last season by virtue of winning the EFL Championship, Norwich City look destined to make a quick return to the second tier following a poor string of results.

Playing in the EPL for the first time in three years, the Canaries have managed a mere four wins to go with their 17 losses in 27 league games.

Norwich’s most recent battering came last weekend when they were trounced 3-0 away at Wolverhampton Wanderers, a result that leaves them bottom on 18 points and seven points away from safety.

Norwich City team news

Timm Klose is closing in on a potential return from a long-term knee injury suffered last August in the Carabao Cup, while Christoph Zimmermann remains a doubt due to a hamstring injury.

Sam Byram has been ruled out having undergone surgery due to a hamstring injury suffered during Norwich’s defeat to Liverpool a fortnight ago, with Onel Hernandez’s knee injury being assessed ahead of the clash.

Leicester City team news

Wilfred Ndidi has yet to fully recover from a knee injury sustained in training last month, while Nampalys Mendy is similarly battling a knee problem suffered during Leicester’s win over West Ham United.

Daniel Amartey continues with his long-term absence having undergone surgery on his ankle, meaning the Foxes are without three key options in the midfield.

Hamza Choudhury returns from a one-match suspension, but Kelechi Iheanacho will be forced to undergo a late fitness test after the Nigerian hobbled off during last weekend’s defeat to Man City.

For someone who hasn’t scored in seven successive Premier League games, it’s quite impressive how Jamie Vardy still leads the race for the EPL Golden Boot.

The 33-year-old striker is level on 17 league goals with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, although the Englishman leads the Arsenal forward on assists with four to one.

Given the frequency with which Norwich have conceded goals this season, Vardy could very well break his duck on his trip to Carrow Road.

Given the potential of fifth place being awarded a Champions League spot following Manchester City’s ban from European cup competitions for the next two years, Leicester City are in no real danger of failing to qualify for the world’s premier continental club competition.

Having given a good account of themselves last weekend despite their defeat to the reigning champions, the Foxes look poised to return to winning ways against a Norwich City side whose relegation is now but a formality.
