It’s a tale of two cities at Carrow Road on Saturday, as Norwich host Leicester in the Premier League.
The Canaries have made a mixed start to life back in the Premier League, having picked-up nine points from their first nine league games so far. Last time out they gained a very credible 2-2 draw at West Ham, and were only denied maximum points by a stoppage-time equaliser from Hammers midfielder Cheick Kouyate.
Alex Neil’s team have suffered just one defeat in their last five Premier League games, and picked-up two wins. The side from Norfolk are currently 13th in the top-flight table.
Leicester has made a good start to their Premier League campaign, but last time out suffered their first defeat of the season, as Arsenal defeated the Foxes 5-2 at the King Power Stadium.
Despite the defeat England international Jamie Vardy scored twice, giving the striker a tally of six goals in seven Premier League appearances this season.
Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri has recently stated that his team cannot continue to be so open, and they were punished for their defence generosity in the Arsenal game.

Facts And Figures

These two teams have only ever met twice in the Premier League and have claimed a victory each in the fixture.
The Canaries won the only game held at Carrow Road in the Premier League.
Leicester have won just two of the last ten meetings between the two teams in all competitions, but one of those two wins came in the FA Cup last time these two teams met in 2012.
Despite the good start to the season, the Foxes have been in poor in defence in recent games, having conceded at least three goals in each of their last three Premier League games.
However, Claudio Ranieri’s side are unbeaten in six games on their travels in the top-flight, and have also scored at least three goals in their last three league games.

Team News

Midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu and striker Gary Hooper both have long-term injuries, and will miss out for the home side. On-loan winger Matthew Jarvis is available again after missing the West Ham game due to being ineligible to face his old club.
Nathan Redmond started the Hammers game on the bench, but could come back in, with Jonny Howson moving back to central midfield, and possibly Graham Dorrans missing out.
Leicester is without midfielder Matthew James and winger Nathan Dyer through injury. Gokhan Inler will be contention for a return to the starting line-up, with Danny Drinkwater, or N’Golo Kante possibly missing out.

Possible Norwich City line-up: Ruddy, Whittaker, Martin, Bassong, Olsson, Howson, Tettey, Redmond, Hoolahan, Brady, Jerome

Possible Leicester City line-up: Schmeichel, De Laet, Morgan, Huth, Schlupp, Mahrez, Drinkwater, Kante, Albrighton, Vardy, Okazaki

Norwich vs Leicester Match Prediction

Norwich has started to look the part in the Premier League of late and will fancy their chances of gaining something from this clash. However, the Foxes have been very dangerous going forward this season, and will offer a potent threat to the home defence.
This could be an entertaining encounter, with both of these two teams involved in high scoring games of late. The bet to go for is a score draw, while over 2.5 goals also looks like a tempting bet.
