Norwich City vs Leicester City Match Previews
Last time out Leicester City lost to visiting Manchester City 1-0 and saw their tormentors gain the upper hand in their battle for the second spot. The city now has 57 points as against Leicester’s 50 after 27 matches.
Gabriel Jesus’s 80th-minute strike gave City the win over the Foxes who had a chance to score in the first half but Jamie Vardy hit the post.
It was the second loss in Leicester’s last five league games having lost previously at Burnley 2-1. In that span, Brendan Rodgers’ side also had one draw away (0-0 against Wolverhampton Wanderers), and another draw at home (2-2 against Chelsea). Their lone win was a 4-1 over West Ham United.
Leicester have just won two of their seven league games in 2020 (one home and one away) and will aim to deal Norwich yet another defeat to stay close to City and keep their lead over fourth-paced Chelsea and the others outside the top four.
WINLESS IN FOUR GAMES
Norwich City is on a four-game winless streak in their last five league appearances. After winning 1-0 over AFC Bournemouth at home, the Canaries had a 2-1 loss at Tottenham Hotspur, 0-0 draw at Newcastle United, then back-to-back losses 1-0 to visiting Liverpool and the latest 3-0 at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Daniel Farke’s side is still mired in the relegation zone, stuck at last place with 18 points to show.

Norwich City vs Leicester City Prediction
• Finding any positive thing to say about Norwich is surely not easy. The Canaries are dead last in the standings and are currently 7 points off the relegation zone. Every game is a must-win for them moving forward. However, they now face a team that, other than Manchester City, scores the most goals when playing away from home. They will always have that day when they beat Manchester City at home though.
• After their scorching run that propelled them to 3rd spot in the standings, Leicester now has found themselves winning just 1 game out of 6. Jamie Vardy, who seemed to be sure of the golden boot after scoring 17 goals in just 18 league games, is now on a goal drought. His last goal was when they visited Manchester City which was 2 months ago. The Foxes will surely look to go back in winning ways, and no better way to do that other than the bottom dwellers.
• Leicester will not take this match lightly, even if it’s against Norwich, as they want to keep that Champions League spot. Leicester to win looks decent here.
