Match Preview: Norwich City v Leicester City

Norwich City host Leicester City at Carrow Road in the Premier League on Saturday (3pm KO).

The Canaries will be battling for our first league win of the season after a 6-0 victory against AFC Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup during the week.

The opposition

The Foxes recovered from the disappointment of missing out on the top four at the end of last season by winning both the FA Cup and the FA Community Shield.

Since then, Brendan Rodgers’ side have taken three points from the opening two Premier League matches.

Jamie Vardy scored with an audacious flick at the King Power Stadium two weeks ago to earn a 1-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

However, on Monday night Leicester were beaten 4-1 at West Ham United, with Ayoze Perez sent off in the first half.

Unlike Norwich, Leicester were not involved in the second round of the Carabao Cup this week due to their Europa League qualification.


In the 58 meetings between Norwich and Leicester since 1913, there have been 22 Norwich wins, 23 Leicester wins and 13 draws.

Last time we met, Jamal Lewis’ 70th minute half-volley secured a 1-0 win in the Premier League at Carrow Road.

Ref watch

Robert Jones has been appointed to take charge of Saturday’s game, Scott Ledger, Derek Eaton his assistants and Keith Stroud the fourth official.

Graham Scott is the Video Assistant Referee, Simon Long his assistant.

Jones was last involved in a Norwich game for our 2-0 win at Wycombe Wanderers in the Sky Bet Championship in February.
