Match preview: Norwich City v Leeds United

Norwich City welcome Leeds United to Carrow Road for Sunday’s Premier League fixture (2pm KO).

Our match preview provides a brief summary of Leeds’ season so far, the officials in charge of the weekend’s game, and how you can follow the action.

The opposition

Marcelo Bielsa’s side are 17th in the Premier League ahead of the weekend with seven points from one win, four draws and four defeats.

Since being beaten 5-1 by Manchester United on the opening day, Leeds have been held by Everton, Burnley, Newcastle United and, most recently, Wolverhampton Wanderers.

They’ve lost against Liverpool, West Ham United and Southampton, but claimed their first win at home to Watford at the start of October.

In last weekend’s 1-1 draw with Wolves, Leeds dominated the game and got their just rewards with a Rodrigo penalty rescuing a point in the 94th minute.

They were knocked out of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday, losing 2-0 to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the round of 16.
