Norwich vs Leicester Match Preview
Norwich lost 3-0 on the road the last match-day, against Wolves. It was their 20th winless league game in the past 22 attempts, and the streak has rightfully kept them in the dead-last spot in the table.
As of now, the team has secured a total of 18 points from their 27 fixtures in the PL so far, and need a surplus of seven points from the remaining eleven match-days, to avoid getting the boot.
Considering that Norwich had just gained entry into the top flight, after a punishing campaign in the Championship the season prior, a quick relegation would be heartbreaking for fans.
Meanwhile, Leicester had taken on reigning but about-to-be-dethroned champions Manchester City the prior game week. Despite the game being at the King Power Stadium, the Foxes were defeated 0-1 by Pep Guardiola and his boys.
The consecutive games against Wolves, Chelsea, and City have made Leicester go through a three-game winless run, and if they keep this streak live, their podium spot will come under threat.
Norwich vs Leicester Prediction
Leicester have been one of the best teams in the competition right from the beginning of the campaign, and they are frontrunners to end up in the top-three of the table at the end. They are also former champions of the league, and as of now, they are hurt, and are looking for retribution.
On the other hand, Norwich are placed dead-last in the table, are huge contenders to get relegated, and are new entrants into this league. They have secured a total of four wins so far from their 27 fixtures in the competition, and have conceded the second-most number of goals.
In addition, Leicester had recorded wins in three of the past four h2h clashes, and the last they lost at this venue was back in 2010.
Careful analysis of all these facts lead to the conclusion that Leicester are overwhelming favorites this Friday to deliver a win.
