Leicester will of course build on their fantastic 4-1 away win to Southampton, as they played their best game of the season. The game vs. Norwich will be a similuar event, with The Canaries trying to play and build from the back.
We will see Leicester hopefully using their skills to break down the Norwich defence and create problems, with the home team trying to dominate from start.
Conor Coady was back on the bench for the Southampton game, but we do believe he will be waiting for a starting position also after the game at Carrow Road. Wout Faes will probably be back in the line-up, missing the game vs. Southampton, never coming off the bench.
Norwich defeated Stoke 1-0 at home in their previous game, had to see defeat at Rotherham recently, but winning away to Bristol City as they follow the top teams and of course will fight for a promotion spot as well.
Their head coach David Wagner is used to promotion challenges and took Huddersfield up from this division in 2017. Wagner has also been in charge of Schalke 04, Young Boys and Dortmund II.

Norwich City Football Club (also known as The Canaries or The Yellows) is an English professional football club based in Norwich, Norfolk. Norwich compete in the EFL Championship, the second tier of the English football league system. The club was founded in 1902. Since 1935, Norwich have played their home games at Carrow Road and have a long-standing rivalry with East Anglian rivals Ipswich Town, with whom they have contested the East Anglian derby since 1902.
Norwich have won the League Cup twice, in 1962 and 1985. The club’s highest ever league finish came in the 1992–93 season when they finished third in the Premier League. Norwich have featured in the UEFA Cup once, in the 1993–94 season, where they were defeated in the third round, but en route became the first English club to defeat German side Bayern Munich at the Olympiastadion in Munich.
The club is nicknamed “The Canaries” after the history of breeding the birds in the area, which is represented in the team’s yellow-and-green kits. The fans’ song “On The Ball, City” is the oldest football chant in the world, written in the 1890s and still sung today, read more
