Leicester beaten by Norwich
This weekend’s Premier League action kicked off on Friday evening, with Leicester traveling to Norwich.
Norwich began the day dead bottom of the English top-flight, with a dismal 18 points to their name.
So, this tie seemed like a great opportunity for Leicester to put an end to their own poor run of form, and also put some more daylight between themselves and the rest of the Champions League chasers.
However, despite the sides’ contrasting league positions, it would be Norwich who came out on top at Carrow Road.
Jamal Lewis fired Norwich into the lead inside 70 minutes, and that is how the tie finished.
Highlights: Norwich 1-Leicester 0
Vardy to return for Aston Villa clash
Leicester were without the services of top scorer Jamie Vardy on Friday, with Brendan Rodgers confirming that he had a slight calf issue.
But it doesn’t sound as though Leicester will be without Vardy for much longer.
The Foxes are at home to Championship side Birmingham on Wednesday in the FA Cup, and then play host to Aston Villa in the league on Monday the 9th of March.
And, speaking after the Norwich defeat, Rodgers stated that if Vardy is not back on Wednesday, he will definitely be fine to take on Villa:
“He’s not out for long, it’s a low-grade strain on the same calf, so he’ll be back in, if it’s not for Birmingham [in the FA Cup on Wednesday], he’ll definitely be fine for the game against Aston Villa [on Monday, March 9].
“But it’s something that we hope will clear up soon.” As quoted by the Leicester Mercury.
