Leicester City will face Norwich City on the weekend, as the Foxes will be hoping their fortunes will change after an embarrassing defeat to West Ham United last time out. 

Norwich will be looking to pick up their first points of the season, with the newly prompted side loosing their first two with an aggregate of 8 goals to 0 scored. 

After Norwich both drew and beat Leicester in the 19/20 season, the Canaries will hope they can cause an upset once again at Carrow Road

Norwich City


Daniel Farke’s Norwich are once again unlikely to be without Prezemyslaw Placheta, Sam Bryam and Onel Hernandez for the fixture against Leicester. 

In goal is highly likely to be Tim Krul, who has established himself as the number one at the club. Making up the backline for the home side could be Max Aarons, Grant Hanley, Ben Gibson and Brandon Williams. After completing the singing of Williams from Manchester United recently, the 20 year-old could make his debut in yellow and green versus Leicester. 

As a three in midfield could be a trio of Kenny McLean, Billy Gilmour and Lukas Rupp. The change in midfield could be McClean coming in for Pierre Lees Melou, who featured in their 5-0 defeat to Manchester City.

In the front three, hoping to cause problems for the Leicester defence, is likely to be Todd Cantwell, Teemu Pukki and Milot Rashica. Despite Joshua Sargent, scoring a brace in Norwich’s cup win over Bournemouth, he may return to the bench to welcome the trio. 

Norwich City XI: Krul; Aarons, Hanley, Gibson, Williams; McClean, Gilmour, Rupp; Cantwell, Rashica, Pukki.

Leicester City


Leicester will remain without Jonny Evans, Jannick Vestergaard and James Justin due to injury. Ayoze Perez also won’t feature after he was sent off against West Ham. 

In the shot-stopping role is likely to be the ever-present, Kasper Schmeichel. A backline of Timothy Castagne, Daniel Amartey, Caglar Soyuncu and Luke Thomas could line up against the Canaries. After his injury in the European Championships, Castagne is fit and available. 

Sitting in front of the midfield is expected to be the flourishing partnership of Youri Tielemans and Wilfred Ndidi. Ahead of the pair is likely to be James Maddison. Maddison will play against his former club on Saturday, and will be hoping to impress. 

Making up the front three could be Ricardo Pereira, Harvey Barnes and Jamie Vardy. With the return of Castagne and Perez unavailable, Pereira may push into the right wing position against the Canaries

Leicester City XI: Schmeichel; Castagne, Amartey, Soyuncu, Thomas; Tielemans, Ndidi, Maddison; Pereira, Barnes, Vardy.
