Norwich City vs Leicester City Match Analysis and Prediction

Norwich City will be looking to record their first win this campaign when they welcome Leicester City to Carrow Road for the third round of English Premier League on Saturday with kickoff at 17:00.

Norwich City dominated the Championship last season and finished at the top of the standings to secure an automatic promotion to the top tier. However, they were reminded of the step up in class on the opening weekend of the 2021-22 Premier League campaign as Liverpool run them out 3-0 at Carrow Road.

The Cannaries were then given a reality check by Manchester City as they were thrashed 5-0 at Etihad last weekend and cannot afford another poor result in the Saturday’s clash.

However, Daniel Farke’s side head into the match off the back of a positive result, having thrashed Bournemouth 6-0 in the second round of the EFL Cup on Tuesday night. Farke will now encourage his side to use the confidence on Saturday and they might have a chance of securing all the three points or at least one since during the last 10 meetings with Norwich playing at home, the Canaries have won five times, while Leicester have won three times and there have been two draws with a  goal difference of 14-11 in Norwich’s favor.

Meanwhile Leicester City have been impressive over the past year and narrowly missed out on a place in the top four last season and will be targeting on proving their mettle this campaign. The Foxes made a positive start to their new campaign beating Manchester City 1-0 in the community shield before opening the Premier League with another 1-0 win against Wolves.

However, Brendan Rodgers’ side were harmed 4-1 by West Ham at London Stadium on Monday night with the Foxes being reduced to 10 men following Ayoze Perez’s red card.

The Foxes will now head into the Saturday’s clash with a win mind considering that their next match after the international break will be at home against the champions Manchester City. The last time Leicester visited Carrow Road was back in February 2020 and they lost 1-0 and have not actually beaten Norwich in the Premier League since 2016, which makes the Saturday’s clash even more interesting and enticing to watch.

Norwich vs Leicester head to head

Norwich City hold a slender advantage over Leicester City having claimed eight victories from their 19 encounters since 1994 whereas Leicester have claimed seven victories and there have been four draws.
